I found this to be very thorough when I had the opportunity to read it, and had taken quite a few notes during my research. I did note bias though, the researcher conveyed the information as if he thought these people's beliefs to be backward. It was good, I would add it to my personal library if the chance arose, but I was disappointed that some of the motifs could have been gone into in more depth if the prevailing mindset could have been set aside and not flavored his book.

While an interesting anthropological study, and interesting sociologically as well, not at all what I thought. I would have preferred to read a book of myths with perhaps minor commentary, not a treatise comparing and delineating myths from multiple cultures with only references to myths from each culture.

When one is like me who has an interest in Asian culture, and loves anything mythological, it only makes sense I read this!! It's fascinating!
