5-0 out of 5 stars Perhaps Colum's best, and a grand tale!
This is an original tale by the wonderful Padraic Colum, poet. It recounts the adventures of a boy, taken from his home to learn from a rather sinister enchanter, and his attempts to escape from his apprenticeship. Babylon and its fall, Hermes Tristemagus and Merlin and the Western Isles are just some of the people and places he visits on his way.

I am pleased to see that Colum's lovely "King of Ireland's Son" is still in print and attracting young fans. It is a pity that this book is not so widely available. Darker in tone and simpler in structure than "King of Ireland's Son" this book draws on the traditions of many lands to weave its spell. If you or your child enjoyed Colum's other books, then I can recommend this one without reservation. It is, in its own odd way, a kind of "Harry Potter" of an earlier generation, with its theme of a lad learning magic.Similarities end there, of course: the wizard is a malign figure, and the "boy" is nearly full grown. But when I was 10, I thought this book one of the best there was, and I think it can provide others with fun and excitement. And what other purpose does a tale have? ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A thrilled Mom
When I allowed my 9 year old to buy this book, I knew he only wanted it because of the cool 3-headed tiger on the front. Much to my delight, a few hours later he announced to me that this was the coolest book that has ever been written. He spent an entire weekend reading!! This is a child that previously had to be forced to read.
This is a great book for boys who have been unmotivated by the typical literature available. The plot is interesting and full of action. The material provides a nice introduction to ancient literature and mythology. It has also given us a good discussion point for history lessons.

2-0 out of 5 stars Book goes to off topic.
I'm 12 and I thought that this book was ok except for one major problem.That problem is that they would be traveling and one would tell a completely unrelated story to another.Also there were some really boring parts.The book is decent but I wouldn't recremend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A true "theater of the mind" experience
The Golden Fleece by Padriac Column (1881-1972) is a complete and unabridged (10 hours, 8 compact discs) audiobook based on the classic Greek legend of Jason, the Argonauts, and their quest for the fabled Golden Fleece. A dramatic and spirited saga of an immortal legend, chronicling the exploits and soul-searing conflicts of mortals, monsters, and the gods themselves. Fred Williams's superb narrative skills brings Padriac Column's epic tale to live in a true "theater of the mind" experience while the compact disc format features tracks every 3 minutes for bookmarking. The Golden Fleece would make a perfect addition to any personal or community library audiobook collection. ... Read more
