    " I ,being one who loves mythology, thought this great. The whole story flowed so well. I would say the best thing about this story was that I was never confuse with what was happening. The myths were told in such a way I remember them perfectly ,which is great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Strickland | 1/16/2014

    " It was a very clear breakdown of mythology, though versions of the myths differ from some that I'm used to. I'm aware that Greek Mythology had a zillion versions that evolved over hundreds of years of storytelling, so it was really cool to see some differences. The stories were broken down into a nice linear fashion. Overall it was informative and easy to read. "

    " I've always had a soft spot for mythology. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheri | 12/27/2013

    " Classic story telling got a little into it and realized I read it many moons ago. But re read it and still enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 12/26/2013

    " I read this to my eight year old. The book does a great job of explaining the Greek myths to kids and adults, expanding on the more commonly known myths and really sealing the details on characters like Heracles. I look forward to reading more of his work. "

    " I love Greek Mythology and I loved this book. There was just so much information in this book, but it was like a story book at the same time. I loved it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crystal | 9/15/2013

    " 40 pages of Moleskine notes and a bunch of fantastic curricular ideas, I'm still glad I'm done. Only so I can go read that blasted Malazan epic taunting me... S'like the Sirens have me... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jack McHugh | 6/10/2013

    " This book was OK, it wasn't the best book i've read. It is all different stories of greek mythology put together in chronological order. It is told in a very boring way. While reading i thought i was skipping over stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan Glover | 12/26/2012

    " Like his Tales of Ancient Egypt, these are really good versions of the myths of ancient Greece. We read these aloud with our children and they loved each one. They are short enough to be bedtime stories (10-12 pages each). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ai | 11/22/2012

    " Great little intro to the world of mythology, but definitely aimed at a younger audience. "

About the Author
Author Roger Lancelyn Green

Roger Lancelyn Green (1918–1987) became interested in myths and legends at an early age. Frequently absent from school due to illness, he spent his time browsing through the books of the magnificent Queen Anne library at his home in England. He loved fairy tales, adventure stories, and traditional legends from around the world. While at Oxford he made a special study of fairy tales and myths. He published a large number of books, but it is his skill as a master storyteller that gives the tales their freshness alongside their familiarity.
