5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST read if you love Celtic history! 12 Jan. 2012
By Andrea Van Scoyoc - Published on
Format: Paperback
I received this book, years ago, as a gift from an Irish friend of mine and had no clue what a treasure I was being given.

From the Ancient to the modern (around the 70's) this book covers everything, starting with the Three Sorrows of Irish of which, The Children of Lir, brought me to tears, to the last of the line of great Elven kings.

An engaging book, you'll meet an array of colorful characters, all of which will enrich your reading.

My favorite is Nano Hayes, who spans from the pre to the post "new god" eras, a wise old Witch who is as spellbinding, as she is valuable to Celtic lore.

While I will admit that there is no glossary (at least in my copy) of how to pronounce certain words and that is beyond frustrating (as it appears that this book was painstakingly researched by handed-down stories and word-of-mouth from those who descended from the mortals lucky enough to interact with, the Fae) if you really must know and your curiosity gets the better of you, simply look them up.

One book you'll NEVER regret reading. Yes it IS long...but worth it!

If you never read anything else about Irish lore, you MUST read this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars A dozen movies to make in one omnibus 3 April 2010
By chicklit - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Wow! I did not know a lot about Irish fairy tales, and this book did not disappoint! Michael Scott weaves in fantastic lore while brilliantly keeping one appropriately intrigued. Each one of these charming stories easily lends itself to a big budget film! And the magical tone keeps the reader constantly entertained.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good addition to the collection 13 April 2012
By bigjala - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was a surprise. I am a fan of folk and mythology from all over the world, and I have found that folktales need to be very well-written to be enjoyed, or else they end up as alien stories about alien cultures. Irish Folk and Fairytales is a good collection of the most important stories of Ireland. It is well written and the tales of the ancient elves and kings touches the heart. This is a book that can be read over and over again
3.0 out of 5 stars Decent. 6 Jan. 2015
By Christina Ballas - Published on
Format: Paperback
It's generally well written, and I found a vast majority of these stories very fascinating, even though I skipped about three stories. I get that these stories have taken place a long time ago, but I can't recall any strong female characters. I'm not the world's greatest feminist or anything, but I found some of the descriptions about the female characters to be a little nauseating.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great book!!! 25 Feb. 2014

This book is great. It has several tales in it. The version of the stories is interesting the range and engaging. I love the range of stories.
