This book about the genealogy of the Greek Gods was an extremely detailed tree of Gods, stories, and people. It starts of with the Greek version of genesis with Gaea and Uranus. Then it describes the Titans and how Prometheus created humans out of clay. I feel that it really relates to many of the topics we study in my world religions class. For example during our Christianity and Judaism unit, we discussed how God formed our world step by step. The Greek version of the beginning is similar were it starts off as darkness and chaos and eventually leads to Gaea, mother earth and the sky, Uranus. At first, when I was choosing a book to read and review for my class, I was not sure if the topics in this book would connect and relate to the major world religions studied in my class, however, many of the concepts and ideas in Greek mythology are mirrored in the religions and cultures we have today. For example, both Hinduism and Greek mythology have different versions of Gods that represent different aspects or things.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Furthermore, this book recalled my childhood memories of reading Percy Jackson and different stories of the Greek Gods. I feel that I made a good choice choosing this book as it expressed different components of Greek mythology really well. This book is great for anyone interested in Greek mythology.
