I first encountered Tom Stone's work in 'The Summer of My Greek Taverna' during a 3 month trip to Greece four years ago and loved it. I have also read and enjoyed 'Minotaur' and have now had the pleasure of 'Chasing Zeus'.'Chasing Zeus' is a great read for both entertainment and history. I enjoyed hearing Tom Stone's familiar and friendly voice, especially when he personalized some of the history. It was also great how Tom intertwined Greek history with the development of Zeus. I loved how he contrasted Zeus with Christianity's monotheism and I was also interested to read about the origins of Greek and European man.'Chasing Zeus' has become the perfect vehicle for my partner and I to reminisce about our travels to Greece. Tom Stone's descriptions of his travels to the sites associated with the life of Zeus have definitely influenced our future Greek travel plans. (In fact, 'Taverna' prompted us to visit Patmos during our last trip!) Next year will be our fourth trip to Greece, so read Tom at your peril! You may be influenced to visit Greece soon!
