    " One of my favorite books. Sort of a hard read if you don't have time to sit down and get through it, but if you can, absolutely rewarding. "

    " I liked how there was far less "listing" of every character's lineage and every place they have ever been to which is quite common in Greek mythology I find "

    " This is one of my favorite books especially this translation of it. The way each story weaves in and out of each seamlessly and with purpose is a testament to Ovid's skill. "

    " The most beautiful English translation of Ovid I've encountered! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jbdean | 2/11/2011

    " An illuminating trek through the ancient world. Some of Ovid's tales left me spellbound, digging through various texts to grab at the pieces of myth and names of lore. Other tales left me yawning and puzzled at why they were included at all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carson | 2/3/2011

    " Metamorphoses was very interesting if you're into Greek mythology. It has many stories that help you understand a lot about ancient Greeks and their beliefs. Sometimes a little confusing if you get tested on it because of all the characters, but otherwise it was a great book! "
