Great Job

The Celts had their own set of gods, elves, myths, and folklore stories. This audiobook does a great job showing those.

Too high level with odd narration

Weird emphasis and painful pronunciation - it felt like I was listening to someone schooled by Shatner.

If you like Celtic mythology, you should not look more than this book. Stories are classic, and most of them are not well known.
