Read full description of the books Irish Myths and Legends (Folio Society):I'll say this for this little morsel--it does make me want to track down the book from which it was clipped, Gods and Fighting Men by Lady Gregory.
In this incarnation, though, I see only a teasing appetizer. The four stories of the stalwart Fianna are presented with zero context, so it felt a little like reading old children's classics--you feel sure there must be more explanation to be had somewhere, because the pieces are just a hair off of fitting.
And while I appreciate the inclusion of photos of Ireland, I do wish their color and placement had been better thought out. As to placement, it is one of my editorial pet peeves when an inserted photo cuts across a sentence--and most of these do so. I realize that sometimes it can't be avoided, but I believe only one or two managed to find a page that wasn't in the middle of a thought. Also, all the pictures are in black and white, which cheats the magnificently surreal nature of Ireland. I've been there; the colors can be so intense it feels unreal, and to take those away makes for some rather dull and unimpressive images.
I'll let you know if the expanded version is better, but this seems of best use occupying time waiting on line at the bookstore check-out. Even if it does have a rather lovely ribbon bookmark attached.
