Could have been much more enjoyable
on 3 August 2015
It becomes clear very quickly that the authors are very versed on their subject, however, this isn't really much of a story book. It's more a collection of very abridged versions of the stories. I expected individual stories to be a more lengthly read. A great book I'm sure if you just want profiles on the gods and heroes and a very brief overview of the myths.
I think I'm going to see if I can find another book that does the story part a bit better. It's a shame because, as I said, the authors clearly have the knowledge to write a great story book, but this isn't it.
