My wife just attempted to order this book for her University Greek class. The store informed us that if we were to have them order it and have it shipped to them, then they would charge the list price of $40! I understand that this is the online portal, but it should be clear that the price in-store is a LOT more. Instead, the price is quoted, then CROSSED OUT. Bait-and-switch, indeed. So, being that I can go to a brick and mortar store and pay 40% MORE, or order online....I'm heading to Amazon where it is cheaper. Thanks for nothing, Barnes and Noble.

I felt that this textbook, From Alpha to Omega, An introduction to Classical Greek, Anne Groton, by was a very good introduction to Classical Greek text book. There were several factors that I really enjoyed about this book. One of the items I enjoyed was how easy this text was easy to follow. It was made very simple so that anyone could pick it up form the beginning and begin learning Classical Greek. Another factor of this book that I enjoyed was the little stories at the end of the chapters. I felt that every time I would learn a section there was always a little story I could read in Greek. I felt that it helped show literacy improvements and help motivate as you followed the journey in Classical Greek. Another item of the text I found enjoyable, was how it was set up. I felt that everything thing was laid out in a clear cut table, or the important information was very was to find. Yet another interesting part of the text was all of the little saying at the beginning of each chapter. It was very cool that they had a little tid-bit from influential Greek scholars. If there was anything that I didn¿t like about the book, it was it very large. At times it seems a little too much. However, it isn¿t the case most of the time (I know I had to find some negative for this or what kidn of review would this be!) Overall, I really enjoyed this book and would suggest it many times!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
