I have finished reading Ireland by Frank Delaney. As the book unfolded, I read many of the myths and much of the history of my adopted homeland. On the surface, it is the story of a young man who at an early age has the opportunity to hear a tale spun by a "Storyteller". The storyteller travels the Emerald Isle stopping at various houses where he's invited to give an oral history (be it embellished history or pure myth) in exchange for a night's lodging and food. The young man, Ronan becomes obsessed with finding the storyteller after his mother, a devout Catholic finds the stories objectionable and asks him to leave. There is much more than meets the eye in this novel. It takes many twists and turns tightening the screw.
