This saga of the Irish Celts is re-told by Rosemary Sutcliff with a magical weaving together of passion and poetry. The boy who takes up the spear and shield of Manhood on this day will become the most renowned of all the warriors of Ireland, men will follow at his call to the world's end, and his enemies will shudder at the thunder of his chariot wheels. So the prophecy went, and as the boy Cuchulain heard it, he went forward to claim the weapons of his manhood. This is the story of how he became the greatest of heroes—the Hound of Ulster.

This is a fine story of mythical heroism (and some tragedy) of 'older' Ireland (not sure that 'ancient' is the right term). I read this book knowing very little about Cuchulain, only that he is Ireland's greatest hero of myth/folklore. It was a great telling of The Hound's life and the tales of his time and land. And ideal for those who find reading the classic texts, poems, and etc of myth boring, tedious or otherwise. I think the only aspect of this book that might dissuade people from finishing it is its sense of unreality and madness, but this is the same of any tale of myth and legend, so take that as you will. Raids, full pitched battles (some hundreds vs one), magic, monsters, and the faery kind abound. As well, Sutcliff wrote this in the way only she can putting the reader in the time and place of the story (happily as always). She writes with a style of her own but remains true to the tale, land its from, and its spirit. If you like this also check out Sutcliff's 'High Deeds of Finn MacCool'.

The story of Cuchulain a renowned warrior and legend of early Ireland, the Hound of Ulster. This tale encompasses his early life, loves and battles up until his death. It's a rousing tale filled with chivalry, courage and honor but it is also savage and blood thirsty.

Filled with magic, myth and folklore this rather shortish novel in length is a glimpse of a legendary character who comes alive on the page.

Rosemary Sutcliff has drawn the elements of this ancient lay into a story tht brings the mysticism o this story to life again so those living in the present age can contact the ancient roots we are all part of, and remind us of a past that meant more than money and maybe has more relevance than it did then, Open your soul and get back to a life that has values that still apply today even if we're not sure how,

Delighted that this can now be found so easily! Searching used book stores never paid off. If you have not experienced RosemarySutcliff, this is an excellent place to begin! Irish mythos becomes explicable.

A wonderful tale and fantastic storytelling easily 5 stars and beyond.

Editing - 2 stars, maybe 3 there is a TOC and the illustrations are handled very nicely. Why the 2 stars? Because the writing is so marvelous, the story so gripping that when you do happen upon one of the few typos it is all the more tragic. For the honour of Ulster please proof the final copy.

While this retelling is written primarily for younger readers it is anything but childish. The sex and bloody mayhem of the source material, central to the explanations of the actions of the protagonists, remains. Consequently, even though the stories are about "superheroes", these heroes remain, in very many ways, recognisably human, driven by deeply human motives of honour, jealousy, love, lust, greed and envy. Often the most heroic can be petty and the most venal given to acts of great courage.

Sutcliff clearly took the time to ensure that the stories were properly rooted in the geography of the North of Ireland and the West of Scotland, something that adds to the pleasure of the reading. A classic that will bear reading and re-reading again.
