5.0 out of 5 stars Finn the half-Great, June 12 2009
This review is from: Finn the half-Great (Hardcover)
Finn the Half-Great

It is about time an author did for Irish mythology what Tolkein did for the bloody English. The characters in Finn are interesting, well-developed and very funny. Rather than taking us to an imaginary world, Caldwell's story is set in our own, back in a time when our myths were real. In this, Finn awakens our collective memeory and unveils the origins of our hopes and fears -- and more than a few of our turns-of-phrase. Required reading for all Irishmen and brilliant story for all those who wish they were.
