Here the line between the fantastical and the real is blurred: mortals and immortals live strange entwined lives; nature and high magic exist side by side. It is Ireland under its old name, Erin, a country of ancient gods with fading powers, who dwell invisible in fairy mound palaces, waiting for a chance to meddle in the affairs of men. In the Children of Lir, Erin is a land of harsh enchantment and tragedy even for a sea god, whose innocent children are so cruelly cursed by their foster mother. In the epic tales of C Chulainn, it is a proud realm of valiant heroes and near-impossible quests for love. In the stories of Finn Mac Cool Erin is a kingdom of glory where Finn leads his band of warriors, the Fianna, through their perilous adventures in defense of Erin's shores, to a place in Irish legend forever....

    started really slow, but how can one not get pulled in with the shape shifting and crazy superpowers of Irish myth?

    3.7 on this one. English audiobook.The stories are told in the typical myth fashion. These are short tellings about the deeds of ancient magical heros, not a cohesive fantasy novel (though the organization of the story does give it some cohesive narration). As I am unfamiliar with Irish mythology, I found the stories very interesting, but sometimes the unfamiliar names were a bit hard to follow. The narration was excellent and it's short enough to listen to all the way through during a hike or walk. Recommended to people fond of myths.

    It was a joy to read all these Irish myths, some were fun, some were sad, some were bitter-sweet. I just simply enjoyed going through all these stories.

    I shouldn't have been surprised, but was, with the treatment of women in these classic myths.
