OUt of this world

The author is an historian type, here takes a look at the mythology of the Celtic people. This is a pretty involved topic, as there are a lot of different tribes and groups that make up the Celts, so a lot to cover.

Great stories

These are great stories and so valuable to remember for those of this ancestry. Name pronouncing was a bit complicated but overall it was great.

Good One

I wasn't sure how some of the names would be pronounced, which made it a bit difficult at times to read. But that is a minor quibble. I highly recommend this book - to beginners in the area of Celtic mythology, and to anyone who likes to read good stories.

Lovely

I have always been interested in the stories from Greek & Roman mythology, and am just now becoming more interested in "recovering my roots" and learning more about the mythology from my own Celtic background. This book was a great way to begin learning.

My Son Loved It

Son loves myths and legends and for me to find this Celt one, it was a big hit. He shared it with his friends who enjoyed it also.

Amazing

A wonderful book full of many myths and legends which were helpful to my writing a short story surrounding the Celtic legends. Perhaps as i move further in my writing I will use more of the legends. I do not know yet. even should I not use any more of it, i still plan on listening to the entire book on its own merit just because I am Irish.

New For Me

The book makes good and light bedtime listening (perhaps what I call a light read might be different than others, but this is pretty light). The stories are generally suitable for telling to kids. It is a nice collection, but has very little value from a scholarly perspective.

You'll Enjoy

This book is a compilation of retellings of Celtic myths, legends, and folktales. The book is broken up by region and covers Ireland, Man, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, and Brittany. I found his style enjoyable and easy to read but the structure of the Celtic style of storytelling is entirely left out. Those interested in this should look at his sources (which he discusses if not citing specifically).

Great Compliment

First, this book is not suitable for deep mythological studies. Usually here you need access to source material in the original languages. At least Ellis points you to that material if you want to go that route.

Great History

A greatwriter, I need information about history from the eyes of the viewer. This book gives me an insight into the mind of the people that lived it.

Poor version

I have not listened to all this audio book, as I was frustrated by the poor quality of both reading and pronunciation. Most of Irish names for people and places are pronounced incorrectly, might be okay for American market, but a an Irish native I found it annoying to listen to, give this one a miss....

Excellent Book

An excellent book covering a time before recorded history. Fascinating review of a lost religion with very few relics. Anyone who watches Game of Thrones will love it.

An amazing audio book

All things considered, this is a solid effort on a large subject condensed down to less than an hour of listening, and worth the time of anyone interested in this subject. Four stars.

IMpressive Writing

There is a mountain of names of people and gods, so many names that a reader could become easily lost. However, the author has arranged the book in a sensible manner, starting with creation myths and then moving on to the main gods. With that under your belt, the book moves on to explain sources of Celtic mythology, and follows that with the ties to Christianity.

Pretty Much Interesting

Something this short can't be comprehensive, but it's a nice overview. Gives you just enough to spark your interest in digging deeper into Celtic mythology, and points you in the right direction for doing it.

Fine Overview

This is a subject I'd never thought much about. However, when I was looking for a short read, this peaked my interest. This book is a rare gem of an introduction to the topic of Celtic myths and legends. A wonderful blend of history and story.
