    " A great retelling of Theseus and the Minator, bringing the legend to life. The story is told in such a way that you feel like you are reading the story of Theseus and what really happened. Great read, highly recommended for anyone who has any love of Mythology or Ancient Greece, or even anyone looking for a great adventure story. "

    " This is a retelling of the Theseus myth, which was published in 1958 originally. It's not as complex a read as the original translations, and it does a pretty good job of capturing a portion of ancient Greek religions. The Theseus myth is set in a BC era, and it's interesting to read about the constant shifting of Greek religions with the knowledge that they would be all but wiped out by Judaism and Christianity. Fans of the Hunger Games with some basic experience in classical literature would like this novel, there are a lot of very obvious similarities between the stories and characters. "

    " Definitely remember reading this in high school. Not very good, but I'm not a big Greek mythology fan anyway.. "
