The collection contains many traditional folk stories and several poems from Ireland. The stories are entertaining, and some contain folk wisdom in their morals. The similarities between these tales and folk tales around the world is striking, though of course characters such as the banshee and leprachaun are distinctly Irish. There is a strong Christian influence in these stories, which makes an interesting blend with the older Druidic elements.

I've downloaded this one from the free section of Amazon store on the night before my flight to Dublin (just visited Ireland for the first time in my life... and not the last for sure, what a beautiful country!) thinking it was a recent anthologie of Irish Legends and Tales... in a way it is, but it's much more than that! Written in 1900, this is the story of a family that moves from Ireland to the States in search for a better future (the American dream). The oldest lady of the house is very superstitious and believes in fairies (she call them the Good People) and spends most of her time telling old tales about fairies, leprechauns, trolls, ancient kings and warriors, talking animals, you name it, everything is there... the young members of the family along with the neighbours listen gladly to all the stories without believing in them. What they don't know is that fairies do exist, right in their garden and when they decide to move to New York, the fairy king decides that they all should go to... and that's when the trouble begins!

This is a wonderful book, filled with awesome tales and myths and a really good background history... reading it in Ireland (mostly on Kerry region) was a great experience... I spent most of my time looking over the kindle and trying to spot some fairies on the woods and gardens but unfortunately I wasn't lucky enough to find one... I strongly recommend this one to everybody who still believe in some kind of magic!

I was expecting this to be a book of Irish folklore or fairy tales, but instead it's a paranormal novel from 1900--where two families are struggling to get by in a new country, without knowing that the fairies (or Good People if I must) from Ireland followed them to New York. The fairies steal one of the families' children, leaving a changeling in his place, and the rest of the tale is about how the changeling and the daughter of the other family get on in life. Plus plenty of traditional tales interwoven into the proper storyline.

But that all makes it sound really, really interesting, and it...was not. Not by today's standards, anyway. It's still an interesting read, if a slow one (it put me to sleep several times), and its curious because we tend to think of the 'fairies in modern society' as a modern idea, but it's not a terribly gripping or fantastic book. Plus the narrator kept directly addressing the reader in rather insulting ways, which was irritating, to say the least.

The traditional tales included were all borrowed from other collections of Irish folklore, so if those are what you seek, another source would be advised.

Not very well-written. I got about 30-40 pages into it and put it down.

This book was fun to read; I especially liked how the folklore was tied in to the immigration experience-Ireland to America. For .99 on my Kindle, it was well worth the read.

This will be a Christmas present, and I have to say that it is a little lackluster. I should have got the hardcover because the paperback just looks old and outdated. Don't know if it is any good, but hopefully the recipient will look pass the cover and formatting of it.

This was a wonderful book - read it cover to cover as quickly as I could. Sorry to see it come to an end. Wish there were more books like this.

really nice book. I got it for my granddaughter and founf out I enjoyed it to.
Really like this story although its not quite what I thought it was going to be. This is not a book of short stories but a novel following two families. Well written and humorous.
