Finn the Half Great is a thoroughly entertaining and meticulously researched book that is sure to delight not only children and teens but kids of the adult variety as well. The author has conjured up richly detailed characters and creatures to populate this mythical Celtic world. Headlining the bunch is the very likable and self-effacing Finn McCool who embarks on Tolkienesque journeys while learning to embody an all important lesson of belief in self. Remaining true to it's fantasy roots the book is both witty and hilarious at the same time making it a delight for all to read. I highly recommend this book, the first from this author, and hope to see more of Finn's adventures in the future.

We read Theo Cladwell's epic classic with our children just in time for Christmas, and at a time when they needed to hear about a real hero.
Finn McCool answered the call in a big and wonderful way. Caldwell's imagination , humor, and storytelling transported us all to McCools world, and made us believe in giants.
A magical read.

Perhaps my favourite read since the Harry Potter series. It has all the elements: adventure, good conquering evil and lots of interesting characters thrown in. Can't wait to see what Caldwell writes next!

Format: Hardcover
Finn the Half Great is a rollicking good read. In the grand tradition of the Brothers Grimm but with a generous dose of "The Princess Bride", Theo Caldwell has created a vibrant unforgettable story based on the legend of a great Irish hero, Finn McCool. Finn is half-mortal, half-Giant, which basically makes him a bit of a misfit in a world where everyone is twice his size; yet, with determination and courage and the help of a few good friends, he prevails. The lesson of this book is that despite our various shortcomings, we are all of us capable of greatness, so long as we believe in ourselves and in each other. Centuries old, the myths of ancient Ireland are full of brave heroes, maniacal villains, fierce battles, and extraordinary friendships. Caldwell's Finn has all this as well as talking birds, ferocious dragons, impish faeries, deadly sea snakes -- and more. We owe Caldwell a `giant' thank you for bringing beautiful old stories to new life with a deft wit and a light touch; this is a book which you won't want to end.

WOW!! What a great read! Caldwell's first novel,Finn the Half-Great was fun from start to finish. Both timeless and original, the book introduces us to a world that can be instantly recognizable in our imaginations yet completely new and fresh at the same time. In this world giants, dragons, and humans tell a moralistic story of right and wrong while also allowing a window into a far more complex understanding of the human condition and our shared history. In this way Finn The Half Great is one of those rare reads that will be equally loved by both parent and child. A must read for anyone who loves to dream, believe, or just read a well written and researched book!

I thought this story was beautifully written, extremely witty and full of charming characters that at times made me roar with laughter and other times warmed my heart. This book will appeal to young and old alike because of the creative and colourful use of language and a story line that captures your imagination. I would highly recommend reading this book not only for those interested in fantasy works but for those who love a book that makes you feel good and makes you smile from the inside. A fine job, Mr. Caldwell.
