A timely retelling,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hound (Paperback)I feel as though I've waited a long time for this book. I've always felt daunted by The Tain, but have always wanted to read it, especially when I've been travelling in Ulster. And then along comes 'Hound', a beautifully written, moving and funny version of the Irish classic, told from the point of view of Leary, Cuchulain's charioteer. Green has steeped himself in the legend, and has retold it with verve and elan. Highly recommended.
