    I read the book Greek Myths: Gods, Heroes, and Monsters by Ellen Switzer and Costas, photographs by Costas. This book is nonfiction. The book gives you a better understanding of both the Greek and the Roman versions of gods, heroes, and monsters. It also includes pictures that relate to these topics. The theme of this book is ancient mythology. Also, many of the stories of Greek Mythology include morals that have to do with mistakes the fact that no one, not even the gods 'mythical, immortal, beings of superiority' , are perfect. Overall, I liked this book, though there were some parts that I did not like as much. One thing I loved about this book is that even though the main topic is GREEK mythology, it also gives you an idea of the Roman version of the gods and stories. For example, it explains that the goddess Hera, wife of Zeus, was not a very good example of a role model mother. In fact she was just the opposite. She hated anything and anyone that was not beauty. She constantly spied on her husband because he kept running off with another woman. She was always suspicious and in a bad, grumpy mood. She was always forgotten and disrespected, even by her own family, fellow gods. And finally she would always dig into anyone¿s and everyone¿s business. Whereas in the Roman beliefs, she was the perfect example of motherhood. She was kind, loving, and never said a mean word to or about anyone. She was very much respected by most beings, including her godly family. The reason that I like the comparisons between Greek and Roman mythology is because it helps to understand mythological concepts. I never really knew the differences between Greek and Roman mythology until reading this book. However, there were some things I did not like about this book. One of them being that in the back there are several pictures that are supposed to relate to the stories. However, in the captions, you can see that they had to stretch it a lot in order to make a connection. And even then the connections are very general. It is kind of like taking a picture of a turkey sandwich, and trying to relate it to zebras. I connected this book to two things. One of them being my favorite book series in the entire world, heavens, and underworld, Percy and the Olympians, by Rick Riordan. And the second is to life and perfection. Throughout this book, you read a lot about gods, heroes, and their accomplishments. However, you also read about their mistakes and flaws. Long story short, nobody is perfect, not even the gods.
