The author is a wonderful storyteller. It may be a long story, but it held my interest with every word.
This is such a pleasant book. At one time I worked with an Irishman who has since left this world, Bill would have loved this book. It is stories within a story

I enjoy literature, but this one was just to boring for me to finish.
All the other reviews make this book sound entrancing, but, in fact, it is boring. It loosely strings together stories, not in any particular order or of any particular interest from Irish history or folklore. The uniting principle is contrived (a young man looks for a story teller). Although the book is well written and well read, the material is tiresome.
Let me preface this comment by saying that I am an audio book addict.
I'm not sure what it is about the narrator, but I can't seem to pay attention to him for more than a couple seconds without completely losing track and falling into a daze. I couldn't tell you what this story is even about.
