This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review. I was surprised to see how similar Celtic Mythology is to Norse Mythology. Not so much in that the stories are the same, but they have the same feel to them.
Some stories are indeed similar, but have different twists. I really enjoyed this book. The narration was spot on. I'm actually looking at listening to some more books about the Celtic Gods and sagas. I was provided this free review copy and have voluntarily chosen to leave a review.
I I enjoyed this book and the narration! I have a much more thorough understanding of Celtic mythology after reading it and definitely enjoyed reading it. I have also recently listened to Greek Mythology by the same author, and find this one, about Celtic Mythology, just as fascinating!
Lots of info into legends and lore of Celtic Mythology. It's not overly long but gives you some great info for the curious, and it allows for deeper exploration into this fascinating world. Enjoyed writing and narration, would definitely listen to more by both!
See a Problem?
It did a good job of summarizing while still making the stories engaging but you are left with the feeling that you are still missing a lot of the tale. I listened to this along with Greek Mythology first in series during my morning commute.
I love mythology, so I already knew a lot of the material covered, but there was a lot that I forgot about and some new stuff as well. I'd definitely recommend! The narrator also did a great job. I requested and received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.
I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work. This was a good listen! It is amazing to hear stories of how people explained things in the early times.
Oliver Hunt was a fine narrator. I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

A retelling of some basic Celtic legends organized by country. Wel researched and retold but not particularly in depth. Not all books I listen to need to be a haunted house, a shifter, or even a love story. This book is an all-inclusive guide to Celtic Mythology.
The first art of the book is an introduction to the Celts and their culture. This book mainly focuses on the Irish and Welsh, although Celts are far and wide in their tribes. Did you know one of the first residents of Ireland was Noah of the Bible's Daughter? In those places that lie beyond the horizon.
In the age before long-distance travel, there was so little known of the world, but then cue Sir John Mandeville. An English knight who set off on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem in but ended up travelling to India, China, Java and Sumatra.
Loch Ness Monster may be a giant eel, say scientists
Written upon his return to England in , it was a medieval bestseller — transcribed into many European languages, and seen as a genuine and truthful account of the world. For me, it sums up the jumbled yet ordered, rational yet superstitious place that is the medieval mind. Mandeville speaks with authority and general sense in the first half of his book, as he describes Europe and the Middle East, but the further east he travels, the further he descends into the realms of fantasy.
These people, despite their shape, are fully reasonable and intelligent. They travel as well in water as on land. In another, people have feet like horses. They have no clothes to wear except the skins of beasts, which they cover their bodies with. For, as soon as they lose the smell of them, they die.
