Too easy

I got this book thinking it would be good...and don't get me wrong it is, but I like a challenging book that makes me think. This retell in prose is too flat out and obvious it' s like reading Dr. Suesses 1 Fish 2 Fish Red Fish. Did I mention i'm only 14? Now do you get...

    Best version

    In my opinion this is the best version avalible anywhere. It is hard to read unless you enjoy such topics as hell or religon, and it is also written in older English. Still the best translation out there.

    Good but hard.

    You must know alot of vocabulary to understand. Might even brush up on your roman gods otherwise you will be lost in this book. But i must say it has great grammar.
