I was very happy to see newer stories and myths, instead of the same old Hercules 12 trials, Athena popping from Zeus' head, etc..... Love it and very educational.
myths and legends...
This is a very good story for people who are interested in greek myths which includes an a to z details. if you do not understand the percy jackson series, this is good reference
This is my first review, so I'll be first telling about the content of this book. This book is a complete history of Roman gods and the myths associated with them.
The first one were Uranus and Gaea- the parents of all the gods. Later Giants and Titans came and after them Olympians. All share a common fate where son will dethrone his own father. This happened with Uranus being dethroned by his own son Titan Cronus and he also faced the same fate by his own son Zeus who later became King of Gods.
Reading this book in Kindle-PC was a different experience. Author has used many Roman phrases which is difficult to understand. Also, author has used Aides in the place of Hades (Brother of Zeus and God of Underworld).
Overall, this book has complete information about the legends and Gods of Ancient Romans and Greece.
You should buy this if you are interested in Roman and Greece culture.
The author sets before the reader a lifelike picture of the deities of classical times as they were conceived and worshipped by the ancients themselves, and thereby to awaken in the minds of young students a desire to become more intimately acquainted with the noble productions of classical antiquity. The aim was to render the legends, which form the second portion of this work, a picture of old Greek life; its customs, superstitions, and princely hospitalities, for which reason they are given at somewhat greater length than is usual in works of this kind.
