I liked it!

How come everyone is giving it one star? I was in 6th grade when I bought/read this, and this told me all I wanted to know about mythologly. Sure, the names got me confused, but it was a good read.

I first read Edith Hamilton in 8th grade, because I needed a general overview of a lot of mythology. Though I didn't know it at the time, Hamilton's stories are rather general; they don't include a lot of important character names and events. In that sense she's a bit like Bulfinch. It's good for someone new to mythology but anyone looking for something more comprehensive should look into Robert Graves.

    Great

    This book is like an art. The way the gods are described is so fascinating. I recommend this book to the fullest.

    Well Written

    This book was very good except for the fact that the details are almost to much to comprehend with all of the other information.

    a reviewer

    This is a really good book once you get past the begining where Edith Hamilton is trying to explain everything. I had to read it for a school asingnment, at first I hated it but once you get into it the stories are great.
