I loved this book. The story revolves around a young man and a story teller that he heard once when he was a child. The story about the young man and his struggles is very good, but the true value of the book lies within the tales of Ireland that the story teller brings to life. While the reader should never mistake these stories for factual or historical accounts of Ireland, it give an amazing overview of the sagas and legends that surround the it. The stories range from the creation of Newgrange to the current day issues that Ireland endures.
The book is a great read for anyone, but if you are a person of Irish descent such as myself, it is a must read. It brings together all the stories that make Ireland great and relates them in a fun and entertaining manner.
