Easy to follow.

Good over all summarized review on Celtics mythology. I came here to learn more about human sacrifice, but they didn't cover that in depth, but over all the book was good. The short stories were nice too.

A wonderful blend of history and story

Captivating, informative and fun present. Thankfulness to this book, now i have a solid belief of the Celtic gods and how the gods and nature were tangled and pure to the Celtic people. I urge anyone involved in ancient mythology to LISTEN to this AUDIObook and to further analyze this topic by Matt...

shockingly dreadful

I'm sorry but an English man reading an Irish and gaelic story who has obviously never bothered to research or learn the Gaelic pronunciation of any of the words, phrases or names is both shocking and insulting.

The "stories" are terribly told, it's like he is reading from 20 different short story books randomly found online and then spent a day reading baby names and taking quotes for the name meanings.

My advise is for everyone to avoid this offensive gobldy gook as it is everything but informative, a guide or anything to do with true Gaelic mythology.

I actually find the book this highly offensive from the first word spoken, this is an insult to my culture and heritage.

Shockingly poor pronunciation of Celtic names

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No way - as the stories and characters are “literally lost" due to mispronunciation!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Celtic Mythology is a major interest of mine but the narration of these time loved stories became unbearable. On several occasions I actually thought I was being introduced to a new hero/myth until eventually I was able to "translate" the narrators phonetic interpretation of Gallic, Gaelic / Celt names. The narrator’s mispronunciation wasn't even consistent it changed as he read. Very Poor and a significant opportunity lost, the publisher could have been imaginative and grounded the centre of the Celtic World by picking a narrator with an appropriate regional/Celtic Nation accent (whichever accent that might be).

Any additional comments?

So disappointing even though it made my kids laugh for all the wrong reasons.
