The language is the largest pleasure here. The use of the words does echo Galway nicely. And the reader is familiar to them.
The pooka is a user friendly version, almost too clean for these days. I read this book when it came out and it has dated slightly, but it's still a lovely read.
I was just reading a book that's current young adult and thinking how very dark it was willing to go. This reminded me of a time when that was not true.

I have always loved horses, but there are not many authors that write horses well. They turn the horses into four legged people and lose the qualities that make the horse what they are. MacAvoy embraces all that is horse then interweaves her story through it. The characters are dimensional without being weighty; you meet them and know them and have a great time. It's like sitting down to lunch with a best friend - you just enjoy yourself and laugh and don't worry about who is saying what. When it's time to leave you are both in a wonder about where the time flew. This is what her books are like - you immediately immerse into her world and she totally makes it work! You don't even have to be a serious horse lover to enjoy this book, you will get it. But for those horse folks out there - you have to read this book and see what you have been missing! Rory totally rocks the pooka (horse fairy). The narrator did a great job too. I'm happy to see her other books being posted as well. Audible - you are awesome!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Grey Horse to be better than the print version?
Not necessarily better. But it helped understand how the old Gaelic was pronounced
Who was your favorite character and why?
Definitely Ruairi. A very likeable rogue. Full of mischief
Which character – as performed by Steve Coulter – was your favourite?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Two moments. The end of the race. And after the capture of the little black king
Any additional comments?
You have to feel sorry for ruairi when they go to geld the grey horse
