I first read this book as a child, and have lost track of the number of times I've reread it. Coming back to it as an adult, I am stunned at the beauty of Colum's language and at his handling of plot. There is a story within a story within a story, with smaller tales that reflect on the main ones and often involve the same characters. It's just astounding. And the stories themselves often have an eerie beauty and an undercurrent of sadness. But there's lots of humor, too, and lots of adventure, and, among the characters, girls as well as boys get to show spunk and initiative. My personal favorite is Morag, the serving girl who helps Flann the orphan boy escape from servitude to a giant. I also love the Spae woman, and Rory the fox! If you read it, I'm sure you'll find favorite lines and characters of your own

I love the way the stories interweave with each other, Colum does a great job, but it does not lend itself to an easy read if you put it down for a while! I do love the book and once finished will read again.

What a joyful and engrossing book this is! An marvelous network of interlaced stories-within-stories keeps you on your toes, trying to keep it all in your head at one time. Each tale is a marvel of masterful storytelling in itself, but the relationships of the stories and characters to each other compounds the delight. Treat yourself to a unique experience - read this book.

The book arrived in excellent condition. However, some of the tales simply don't track one after another and it is as if, a tale or two were left out. It is still a nice addition to my Irish folklore collection.
