Reviews - What do customers think about Stones of Adoration: Sacred Stones and Mystic Megaliths of Ireland?

Visually Stunning, but Thin on Substance  Jun 8, 2008
This lushly illustrated, elegantly typeset book presents the myths and legends associated with Ireland's many megaliths and natural rock formations. Organized by story theme, the author covers a wide span of folk narratives, from those linked to Irish mythology to those of the Irish saints, to modern legends of partiers turned to stone for dancing on Sundays. Her knowledge of myth and legend is solid, and she clearly demonstrates the links between the narratives and the landscape. However, some background facts were evidently not carefully checked, as errors leaked through; and her overall perspective is colored by the notion that stone age matriarchal goddess-worshipping societies were later overrun by warring patriarchal tribes. While Neolithic Europeans may well have worshipped goddesses, the archeological record reveals little about their notions of gender, so this view is overly simplified. Also, the folk narratives are presented with no scholarly annotation -- a pity, for Ireland has one of Europe's oldest programs in folklore collection. Still, this book is worth getting as a gift or a beautiful coffee-table piece. Just don't rely entirely on it for research purposes.
Stones of Adoration  Feb 2, 2008
Irish Mythology can be confusing and difficult to grasp, Christine Zucchelli brings Irish Mythology to life in the Stones of Adoration through well researched and accessible writing, enhanced by beautiful photographs of Sacred Stones, Stone Circles, Standing Stones, Dolmens, Shella-na-Gigs, Ogham Stones and Wishing Stones.
