    I read over half of this book and enjoyed what I finished. 3 stars will suffice. Still, I'm adding this to my DNF shelf until I get the urge to read some more. These Celtic names are a bitch to pronounce and that's why it has taken me over a year to even read nearly 500 of the 700+ pages. Sue me.

    It's not you, it's me. Well, it is you, a little bit I was being polite. I know it might seem insane to abandon a 704 page book after 34 pages, but I feel nothing for these stories, neither positive or negetive, and maybe whoever I unhaul this on will enjoy it more than I did.

    I've had this book for years and still haven't been able to finish it. It seems that every time I try to get back to it, something else intervenes, whether it is schoolwork or my job. However, that fact does not detract from the fact that this is an amazing collection of Irish myths and legends, most of which are short enough to read a few at a time and not suffer for not being able to devote an extended amount of time to reading the entire book.

    Not long after beginning to read Joseph Campbell’s works on comparative mythologies I moved to Northern Ireland to study Irish literature and theatre. I’ve been a tremendous fan of Irish mythology since; it’s such a beautiful, ancient culture steeped in rich tradition and imagination. This book is written by famed scholar, poet, and dramatist William Butler Yeats, a driving force behind the Irish Literary Revival whose works are heavily influenced by Irish folklore.

    Like 1001 Arabian Nights - this book has some shining examples of beautiful lore, prose, imaginative beauty...but some just sound like each other.... My favorites are those with St Patrick - the blending of Roman Catholicism with the Pagan religions are deceptively beautful and show how easily old traditions were eclipsed.
