I wanted so much to love this book. I love all@things about my culture, however I‘m more into the Celtic lore@than I am about these stories. The back story was a vehicle in which to tell short stories which I am not a fan of. Writing was eloquent but overall the story bores me.

Day 7 - #ireland #literaryluck #ulysses #jamesjoyce #frankdelaney

I want to read Ireland by Frank Delaney before my trip to Ireland next year.

I have read Ulysses by James Joyce. Some parts I enjoyed and some parts were a real struggle.

EadieB @vkois88 You have questions? 9mo
Tove_Reads It‘s been on my TBR since I first lived in Ireland in 2004. I bought it back then. Probably should read it soon... 9mo

I love reading about Ireland and this book did not disappoint. It‘s a story within a story that leaves you wanting more. A storyteller arrives at eight year old Ronan‘s home only to mesmerize him before vanishing, then Ronan sets out to find him. Delaney himself is a fantastic storyteller.

I don‘t know if I have ever read a book so eloquently written about a land and people as Ireland by Frank Delaney. This was the first of his books I read, it was not the last. 😋

PirateJenny This has been in my tbr apartment since it came out. I have a problem, Littens. 2y
RachelO @PirateJenny I think I've had his The Celts on my shelf (unread of course) since it came out too. 1989 apparently 😳. 2y

Happy St. Patrick's day 🍀! This is a delightful #Irishstory about a storyteller written by the #Irishauthor Frank Delaney who sadly passed away only last month! I took this out to just take a picture and I ended up rereading the story about St. Patrick! It's still good!! #marchmadness #marchintoreading

brilliantglow I have this one but haven't had a chance to read it yet. 3y
booksandsympathy @brilliantglow It is such a wonderful book! 3y

EllieDottie @brilliantglow I completely agree with @booksandsympathy it's fantastic!! 3y
brilliantglow @EllieDottie I'm glad to hear! I'm going to make an effort to read it this year if I can slip it in amongst my reading challenges 3y

This young man grew to love stone the way farmers love cattle, the way women love children, the way boys love pretty girls. To him, stone seemed to speak; he didn't hear a voice, but he understood it just the same, because deep in his mind a picture formed of the world as it must have been long ago

MrBook Nice quote! Nice pic too! 3y
