The first story in this collection is excellent but the rest aren't so good. Mostly, this book is about rural Ireland, poverty, ignorance and superstition. Some of the stories are about wildlife : rabbits, horses, insects, birds, which I found quite unusual. Liam O'Flaherty writes well, but the content of some of the stories seemed not really worth the effort.

Liam O'Flaherty was a significant Irish novelist and short story writer and a major figure in the Irish literary renaissance. He was involved for a time in left-wing politics, as was his brother Tom Maidhc O'Flaherty (also a writer), and their father, Maidhc Ó Flaithearta, before them.
