Divine Angus might grant you sight of your true love in a dream; you might even fall in love with him - but he'll never love you back. He's too busy making mischief, until he is trapped by his own romantic games and falls for an unattainable woman, doomed to seek her forever.In 20th century Scotland, Angus's troubled alter ego searches for his true family; a psychotherapist who helps people understand their dreams, his life seems to parallel that of his mythic namesake.Mesmerically weaving together the tales of the Celtic god and the Scottish scientist, Alexander McCall Smith unites dream and reality, leaving us to wonder: what is life, but the pursuit of our dreams?… (mer)

A mate to Atwood's Penelopiad et al in a series of myth retellings. Alternates chapters telling the ancient story with more modern parallels. ( )

A lovely little book that could be read over many times, a modern take on an ancient legend. I read part of this 10 years ago and lost interest so I put it aside. I am so pleased to have picked it up again. Sometimes you need to be in the right space to read a story with intent, and with patience. ( )

I just didn't like this.

I have a sneaking suspicion that McCall-Smith, just like James Doss, likes the sound of his own writer's voice, and thusly writes for the pure pleasure of hearing his own words.

I just didn't understand the point of the stories, they were short and left me wanting so very much more. I felt they were all very underdeveloped. I also think that the stories are inter-connected with each other, but mostly I fail to see the connection with the exception of the Boys whose fathers were really not their fathers.

So I rate this "Eh!" ( )

This book is part of the Canongate Myth Series. Smith retells stories about Dream Angus, the Celtic god of dreams and love. The chapters alternate between stories of Dream Angus and stories of regular people that somehow relate to myths. Some of the stories mirror something that happened to Angus, such as finding out the man who had been raising him is not his father, and others involved dreams affecting lives. It was an interesting and quick read. ( )

Mixing the Celtic legend of Dream Angis wioth the story of a couple that experience a visit from him and its aftermaths has been a really good idea. The two sections are beautifully written and the god's passion for the mortal girl is really moving. The end is too sugary, perhaps, but in a world like this one need happy endings, albeit in books.
