5.0 out of 5 stars This collection is amazing!
This collection is amazing! I was really surprised, but so happy when I saw it come up.

I am a monstrously huge fan of Greek and Roman mythology and I was hoping to get quite a few of the great writers.

So when I saw that this has all of them, and all their works, all in one book, I was amazed! I was also so excited that there were multiple versions...

2.0 out of 5 stars Different versions of the same stories, good for classical students
The books are fantastic the problem is the indexing, it takes forever to find anything. I don't think I will keep this on my tablet as its a laborious task to find what you want to read.

I am over-joyed to read again books that furnished my school-days with such a rich tapestry of the history of the ancient world.
Without a doubt this will keep me occupied for some time.

Amazingly large collection of classics in translation, including some of the less well-known works. Navigation is sometimes poor, and footnotes may just have to be viewed at the end of each section rather than with their text. Very good value at the price.

Sweeping tales of love, lust and betrayal set among the bickering gods of Olympus, inspiration for countless fantasy books and movies. A true hidden treasure.

,,except I'm not; but it goes to show the very tenacious martial tendencies in human DNA. And,bewilderingly, opportunities for the best of it to also emerge. Should be studied in all schools; not just the "posh" ones..

I've lived with these tales from childhood and still find them fascinating. Thoroughly recommended as escapist literature. Could make bedtime tales for your children.

read it as it a very good read.
