This book has many great stories that are beautifully retold. It is definetly worth 2.99 if you like greek myths, or just want something to read.

I think it was a good book. But when I bought it it said "Greek Myths" not roman. It explains many Greek mythology stories really well but I dont really know many of the roman names so I keep getting confused. Either way its really good.

It was great and it haf great storys but it is labled GREEK myths not roman so why do they use the romann names for the greek gods? I know who is who in roman or greek but if it says greek myths use the greek names not the roman!
