Received this as a gift for my Birthday, and am really looking forward to reading it.

Registered for the Race to Three Million.

From the back cover: "In the winter of 1951, a storyteller arrives at the home of nine-year-old Ronan O'Mara in the Irish countryside. The last practitioner of an honored, centuries-old tradition, the Seanchai enthralls his assembled audience for three evenings running with narratives of foolish kings and fabled saints, of enduring accomplishments and selfless acts - - until he is banished from the household for blasphemy and moves on. But these three incomparable nights have changed young Ronan forever, setting him on the course he will follow for years to come - - as he pursues the elusive, itinerant storyteller . . . and the magical tales that are no less than the glorious saga of his tenacious, troubled, and extraordinary isle."

I'm glad I had the chance to read this book. It took me a while to get into it, and I came back to it several times before I found myself connected to the story. Once it came together for me, I gained a fuller appreciation for the book and the style of writing. Many stories within the story, and I learned much of the history and folklore of Ireland. Passing on to davethetech.
