This book was good, but not as interesting as i had expected. I was told that it was very good, and it turned out to be exactly as you would expect a book of greek.myth stories to be. I had heard many of the stories before, and didnt find that the written form made them any more interesting. Those who are interested in greek mythology would probably enjoy this.book.
