Now I saw the page count on this book and I figured it would be a rather comprehensive overview of some traditional celtic mythology, and that is exactly what it was. In that respect the book was informative and entertaining, with just enough background history to allow just anyone old person (like me!) to get the general plot line of each myth and legend. However what i didn't expect upon purchasing this book is the density of this material. Many of the names of various characters were very similar or very long so it was often hard to keep track of who was who. Some kind of index with al the names would have been very helpful. Also, since I am not from Scotland nor have I ever been I was also very unfamiliar with the geography of where many of the legends took place.
So all in all I was very entertained by this book, and I also learned a lot about celtic mythology (which was my goal) but it was a struggle. I would not recommend this book for anyone other than readers who have a natural curiosity about the subject because you will definitely need it to get through parts of this book.

This was a bit of a surprise. I expected to see more names and cities I would have recognized.
