Charming, Educational, and Entertaining

Don't let a so so name and awful cover fool you!

I can barely put into words how much I loved this book and the reading by the author!

It's like sitting in conversation with a knowledgeable, thoughtful, and charismatic pibling and just getting to absolutely nerd out about Bram Stoker, Dracula, and vampires. The tone is gloriously conversational and insightful with the reading being so natural and engaging. I believe this is the first I have read or heard of Delaney and I was put in mind of Gaiman and the enthusiastic charm and wit he brings to subjects he is passionate about.

Absolutely worth a listen regardless, but if you have any interest in any of the above it's essential listening.

Bloody brilliant!

I loved this book. It was told from the perspective of a "professional" storyteller, traveling the Irish countryside and earning his keep by telling stories. This format made it easy to jump all over Irish history. It was set 150 years ago. In particular, I know this led us to visit New Grange on our recent visit to Ireland.
