Dictionary of Gypsy Mythology by Claude Lecouteux




Whether you know much about the Roma Gypsy or their mythology this book is very interesting. It is not a story or a text book. It is just as the title says a dictionary. The book goes alphabetically of the people, places, items, time all believed in the mythology. Each entry has a short story, legend, or just the place in the myths, or who the person was.  There are some drawings and poetry also. This is a very interesting book. It is a short read also only 195 pages. When you have finished reading you will have a better understanding Roma Gypsy mythology, and if you knew nothing abotut it before reading you will be wanting to find out more about the culture afterwards.

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.
