Publisher's Summary

Somewhere in the shadowy borderland between myth and history lies the territory of Finn Mac Cool. Mightiest of the Irish heroes, leader of the invincible army of Fianna, he was a man of many faces: warrior, poet, lover, creator, and destroyer. Finn Mac Cool is a man taken from one of the lowest classes of Irish society, driven by ambition and strength to rise above his birth and bring new respect and status to his people. 

He had it all and lost it all, but in the end he gained immortality. Finn Mac Cool is a novel of sweeping historical grandeur and awesome adventure.

Beautiful but Insulting.

For those of us who share the blood of the old, who stirred at an early age at the Rhythm of a Celtic heartbeat, it was sheer agony to hear this tale belittle the memory of one so great in deed. would you strip people's Jesus, or their David and Goliath? Would you turn your christ apostles into mere liers and dishonor them? Would you supplant Buddha with an acid head or shroom eating manipulator? Yes, a well written and well performed book. But I spit in your direction, for the insult.

Voice actor?

Very strange choice for a voice actor. He gives young Finn the voice of a 70 year old man with loose dentures and COPD.

gripping narrative and historical descriptions

portraying the characters quite well, the reader is drawn to an intense world of warrior's path, and gains of knowledge.

Finn Mac Cool... great story.

Another great historical Irish tale. Loved it. but it was difficult to listen to the mispronunciations of the characters names the Fianna it's pronounced 'Fi na' .

Lives up to the legend

Interesting yarn but not a lot of substance. Found myself determined to get it over and done with rather than immerse myself in.
