Publisher's Summary

Celtic Mythology

Are you interested in ancient cultures, meaningful tales, and entrancing folklore? 

Because if you are, this audiobook has much in store for you. 

Do you know that the Celtic culture and folklore, though with a primarily Irish origin, has widespread branches across the globe - as far as the British, Scottish, and Welsh cultures of Europe, and right into the Euro-Asian territory of Turkey?

It is a culture that was as interesting as it was mysterious and has passed its knowledge of mythological creatures and deities from generation to generation, developing a holistic view of the universe.

This audiobook can provide you with a combination of all the aspects of Celtic mythology - from its Irish and Welsh origins to its Scottish and Brittany sides - allowing you to have a complete 360-degree view of the world with a perspective that is much more interesting and spiritually accurate than the contemporary ones.

In this audiobook, you will be discovering a completely different side of the universe and looking at deities that seem to have much in common with the Greek Gods but are believed to be different. It accounts for all the tales, gods, legendary creatures and beliefs that have dominated the Celtic folklore and been conveyed by it - being handed down generation to generation for centuries.

The audiobook conveys:

  • Who the Celts were and what beliefs they shared?
  • Why and how their tales were passed down from generation to generation
  • Tens of the interesting myths and tales that the Celtic people shared
  • Comprehensive insights into their culture and how far and wide their branches spread
  • Details of their Gods and other religious concepts

I think this is a reliable audible for us

The narration rambled on in one tone from tale to tale... By the time you realised one tale had ended you were half way through the next... Gutted i wasted a credit

This book can develop to Us

Im returning this. I'm only on chapter 3 but I can't stand it. The narrator seems to be Irish but is not pronouncing the names correctly. In the story of Midir and Éadaoin the Goddess' name is mispronounced over and over again. Éadaoin (Aideen) is my sister's name and is not uncommon as a contemporary name! Disappointing and annoying, defeating the purpose of the book which the author states is to bring the old stories of the Celts to a wider audience.

Absolutely Prodigious Helpful Guide

All be it my 5month of son, Ragnar son of Ryan felt captured by this audible book one of which I have read and felt worthy of listening too as we try to calm our child without the constant brainwashing of kids TV. This was great to play on loudspeaker throughout the house and a well worthy listen.

Lots of Vital Data Accumulated In This Book.

Credit to the narrator. In my mind it helped me to really picture these myths and stories closer to their origin. The stories seemed very much too similar with minor differences. Worth a listen.

Excessive valuable data involved in this guide

Full of inaccuracies about scotland/ireland. the most glaring was that Carslisle is in Scotland. writer may know some mythology, but doesn't know history or geography. Clueless.

Celtic Mythology

Poorly put together, in chapter 2 the narrator swears after he misspronounces one of the deity names. it also repeats the same sentence in a few different parts. I didn't find that I learnt much from this production, it was too mater of fact for the way I learn.

Facile to detect the direction and clear examples

The man hearing this audiobook sounds like he has never seen a audiobook before, let alone seen the words in languages that are not his own.

Very pleasant listening to the heard. Fascinating insights into the old tales of the author. Some are mournful and some are quite funny. All in all, a very enjoyable collection of stories.

This audible played an extremely supportive role

I deeply appreciated the authors endeavor to thoroughly verify the entirety of the mythos before delivering it and then still finding a way to craft an engaging yet as accurate as could be expected tale.
