5.0 out of 5 stars Tales in simple, modern English
I was drawn to this book because I've always wanted to know what Beowulf is all about but was put off by all the olde English. Robin Brockman tells all these tales in simple, modern English, and along with Beowulf, I now know what Gilgamesh is all about, as well as a load of stories from far flung parts of the world, some of which, it has to be said, are pretty racey!

5.0 out of 5 stars A very interesting book, 7 Jan. 2014

This review is from: Myths and Legends from Around the World (Kindle Edition)
The way it was structured into different tales was very good. It's easy to read and gives the tales a story feel, which helps to build a picture of the story. Would recommend to anyone wanting to know more about myths and legends.

Fascinating insight that shows that all early forms of worship have the same creation stories and the legends contain the same morals and ethics.
