Narrator didn't even try to pronounce Irish words and names correctly.

I bought the Audible version to listen to in my car. Good thing I wasn't in busy traffic! The narrator has no clue about Irish pronunciation. I admit I'm no Gaeilge scholar, but I do use Irish sources to try to pronounce words and names correctly. The first time the speaker called a character "COO Coo Lin," it took me a minute to realize he meant Cú Chulainn. It just gets worse from there, and I gave up. Waste of an Audible credit.

Great stories

These are great stories and so valuable to remember for those of this ancestry. Name pronouncing was a bit complicated but overall it was great.

I

many of the stories seem to not have a point. it just sounds like random rambling where random powers are assigned to fill a plot gap. I would think the true stories are lost and only a patchwork remains with some monk throwing in a bridge between the gaps. the narrator isn't bad but he doesn't get into any character, just reads the story in a dry fashion. i don't blame him the characters seem to be introduced and forgotten pretty quickly with very little connection between.

Poor version

I have not listened to all this audio book, as I was frustrated by the poor quality of both reading and pronunciation. Most of Irish names for people and places are pronounced incorrectly, might be okay for American market, but a an Irish native I found it annoying to listen to, give this one a miss....

Excellent Book

An excellent book covering a time before recorded history. Fascinating review of a lost religion with very few relics. Anyone who watches Game of Thrones will love it.

An amazing audio book

All things considered, this is a solid effort on a large subject condensed down to less than an hour of listening, and worth the time of anyone interested in this subject. Four stars.

IMpressive Writing

There is a mountain of names of people and gods, so many names that a reader could become easily lost. However, the author has arranged the book in a sensible manner, starting with creation myths and then moving on to the main gods. With that under your belt, the book moves on to explain sources of Celtic mythology, and follows that with the ties to Christianity.

Pretty Much Interesting

Something this short can't be comprehensive, but it's a nice overview. Gives you just enough to spark your interest in digging deeper into Celtic mythology, and points you in the right direction for doing it.
