This is the Adventure story which all others since have been based on. It is a hard read for most people, especially the layman. But the story was meant to be heard after all. I certainly recomend audiobook format for those new to the Greek or Epic format.

You shouldn't buy this book if you're not interested in Greek Mythology. To anyone who enjoys Greek Mythology this is a good and interesting book.
