Overview

Jason's destiny is to rule Iolcus, but his uncle, King Pelias, has taken over the throne and is not willing to give it up. Cunningly, Pelias persuades Jason to accept a dare to bring back the famous Golden Fleece of Colchis. Jason accepts the challenge, unaware that he is being conned into a dangerous and perhaps fatal journey far from the land he loves. Jason sets out, along with Heracles and Theseus, Perseus and Atalanta, and the sorceress Medea, on a wondrous journey in the ship Argo to strange lands populated by even stranger inhabitants. As they travel, Orpheus, the storyteller, sings songs about the gods and goddesses and the creation of heaven and earth.

Was kind of a slow read in places! But was a fantastic background of characters and Greek mythology for the Percy Jackson series and the heroes series of Riordan's. It explains who the referenced gods were and the heroes as well. Worth reading!

I have basically read almost all of rick riordans books, and i can already tell, without reading this, its an awesome book. Also, read the percy jackson books, the heroes of olympus series, and the demigod files.

My child is ten and reading this book and she says it is very good. She is reading it in school and might be reading a different version. There is great vocabulary and really is enriching her reading skills, her version is written in old english and really she loves it! It is a bit challenging for her, even though she is an advanced reader! Great for people of all ages!

The neeland llc version is exactly what i was looking for! Most of the others looked poor on my nook or lacked the classic illustrations or formatted the illustrations poorly on the nook. I look forward to reading it to my children. I am glad I previewed them before I bought any.
