Fairly Good

(4 Sterne)

The tales were quite good, but not so for some of the readers. it's worth a listen though.

a good little book

(4 Sterne)

over all the same narrator was very good. very amusing tales well told

Fairy Tales tell deeper truths

(4 Sterne)

We are barraged with fairytales from every quarter these days. It is refreshing and comforting to access the traditional sources of the stories that informed our cultural heritage. This collection takes us on a journey from the whimsical to the horrifying and on to redemption and wisdom. Most of the readers are lyrical and soothing, a couple are neither, but overall this is a beautiful collection.

Noticed similarities

(5 Sterne)

I enjoyed listening to these folk tales. I'm obsessed with fairy and folk tales, and like to find how different countries' tales are similar to one another. I even heard tales I haven't heard since I was a little girl. I loved listening to these classic and wonderful tales.

Wow!

(5 Sterne)

Very nice stories. some of these should be reread though. There is some kind of error with Guleeesh and the tales of O'Toole and Olwen are really hard to follow, in part due to the recording.

wonderful voices

(4 Sterne)

Great voices, wonderful tone and quality. Stories are authentic but some a bit strange to my American twenty-first century ear. If you like folklore, you’ll love this. Some new. Some familiar.

very good and novel to me

(4 Sterne)

Never heard Irish folk tales before, and this was a great introduction. Only problem is that the main reader reads at a somewhat low volume.
