Interesting information, but terrible writing. I'm not sure which audience it was for - it seemed like children's writing, but only because it didn't seem sophisticated enough for adults. But the sentences were so choppy that I don't think it would appeal to kids either. Had it been more than 90 pages, it wouldn't have been worth finishing.

Further, his use of the sources seemed slipshod. In the book, he claims that Patrick was kidnapped by Irish pirates, along with thousands of other people on the same day. But later in the book, he quotes from Patrick, where he says that he was kidnapped, as thousands had been as well. There was nothing to imply that there was a huge raid enslaving whole populations, just that over time many people had been taken. So statements like that made me question the author's conclusions.

That being said, it did convey information about a figure I'd like to learn more about, and let me know the sources we have about him. Also, the author did include Patrick's theology/spirituality into the biography, which is the main reason I picked it up. A purely historical account of Patrick's deeds wouldn't be as interesting to me.

While I can't recommend the book, it is at least an introduction, and did make me want to read more.
