Opinion

From Library Staff

"Lore" is a fantastic podcast and this book is just as good. But it's literally the podcast in book form. I was hoping Mahnke would use the freedom of print to give us something more. Instead, this is more of the same. Not remotely a bad book but not what I wanted.

This is basically Mahnke's "Lore" podcast in book form: several fascinating tales, well-researched and well told, with a glimpse into the history behind them. It's entertaining and informative, just as you'd expect. But it's nothing more than that. Mahnke doesn't use the expanded format of the book to go into any more depth or detail than he does in his podcast episodes. This work doesn't add anything new to the world of "Lore" or expand it in any new directions. It's a quick and fun read. But I had hoped for something with a bit more substance.
