For the most part this was an enjoyable read. Unfortunately, the way the author had the narrator of the story go off on his own ramblings, or throw in side notes, spoiled it for me, as I felt it wasn't right for the story. I'm sure the author meant it to be amusing, but it didn't work. That sort of thing is difficult to pull off properly in a story like this, and I'm afraid I didn't feel the author was successful. Now, had it been a legend or folktale, with a scene set up from the start for you to imagine yourself at a campfire with a storyteller, it might have worked.
Other than that, however, it was a really great read.
