Very atmospheric

Well read, really builds up the atmosphere, and I didn't get too lost with names and places!

Loved it, wish there were more classic sagas available.

Exhilarating

This was a magnificent evocation of a time of legendary heroes related by an ancient bard. It was a truly exhilarating performance.

Take a pass on this one...

This was a hard to follow story read by a monotone narrator. The combination of the two was a very painful listening experience for me. If the reader is interested in an Irish themed book, I recommend The Princes of Ireland by Edward Rutheford.

Not easy but rewarding to the studious

This is perhaps not a good book for the audio format for someone unfamiliar with the subject- Many strange unrecognizable names and a lack of modern narrative flow typical of some mythical writings combined with a monotonal narrator make it very easy to zone out while listening. That being said- to someone familiar with the legends herein described,and they are fascinating once you dig in, this book provides an interesting perspective on some old stories.
