The ethnocentric use of the story tellers 'quaint' Irish accent makes this book difficult to read, and makes it seem like the story teller is an illiterate boor. There are many far better books of Irish tales out there, and it is strongly recommended that you read one of those instead.
If you are determined to read it you'll probably be happy to know that there's an active table of contents, but disappointed to discover there are no illustrations.
Contains the Following Stories: Preface The Seven Kings of Athenry Taming the Pooka The Sexton of Cashel Satan's Cloven Hoof The Enchanted Island How the Lakes Were Made About the Fairies The Banshee The Round Towers The Police The Leprechawn The Henpecked Giant Satan as a Sculptor The Defeat of the Widows
I have always loved anything and everything Irish and Ghosts so to have this amazing book combine the two is just wonderful. It talks about all types of lore and legend in such detail that you feel as if you are there in Ireland. The book was extremely easy to download and it loaded very quickly onto my kindle without any hassle. I am very pleased with this seller and the quality of items they have on their site.
I found this book to be intriguing as it talks about many creatures associated with Ireland. I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in these types of things who has some patience to read it.
I enjoyed the book but I had a hard time reading most of it as they were quotes from the Irish and were written as they were spoken. It took time to decipher what was being said. Yet, I found it interesting.
