Picking this book out at the library was probably one of the best discussions I have ever made. Seriously. I remember practically devoring this book back in the day and then forcing my mom to take me to the library to get the next book (which I still do by the way). Reading this book started my obsession with Greek Mythology (which in turn made me love the PJO series).
Since this book is told in Hades' point of veiw a person who knows the myths would expect it to be (searching for the right word here) lack in humor but apparently King Hades has a great sense of humor. Hades explains how he's not as bad as he's made out to be. He's just a normal god ..with extremely bad luck.
I'm going to get my younger brother to read these books soon so he can enjoy them too. :)

When i first picked this book up to read since it has a interest
When i first picked this book up to read since it has a interesting cover i thought it would be another one of those same kind of myth books but this book is really interesting where it tells us about how the greek gods were born and other stuff. This book has really great details on the greek gods and their father and everything else like that. So in this book the first god that was born was Hades the guy on the cover. When he was born he was swallowed by his dad since he was told that one of his kids was to overpower him and he didnt want that to happen so he decided to eat them once they were born. This book tells us about the many adventures the gods and goddesses went on like fighting the dragon typhon and even to overthrow the titans which is their fathers army in a series of games.Was this review helpful?
