Brought back to life by Kinsella
on 8 June 2009
This version of the Táin was recommended to me by a friend and it has not disappointed.
I found the prose to be very much alive and easy to read.
Sometimes epics (or portions of) of this age can be rather dry and daunting but I am glad to say that there was a nice rhythm to the book.
It almost had a feel of being told a story which for me is the ultimate ideal in this case.
As the older Irish stories are largely an oral tradition this is a fantastic achievement in my opinion.
If Kinsella were to turn his hand to being a seannachaí, He's welcome at my fireside any day of any week.
