    The Kalevala is the signature work of traditional Finnish culture. In story after story, it explores the human and divine world as understood by the traditional runic singers of the north. It sings of how the universe came to be, how the natural world works, how divine and supernatural worlds relate to the world of humankind, how human beings relate to each other, how good and evil and life and death function in the world.

    Paul Z. says: "Great Book"

    Story

    I've always wanted to read this and the listen makes it so easy. It has much more meaning than you could get out of text. Now you gotta be a nut for this stuff but it is worth it to listen to the whole thing and get into the song of it. Since it was designed to be sung over days . It is a commitment but you get to hear the roots of Tolkein. Worth the effort.
