    The great myths of Ancient Greece have inspired mankind for centuries. Each of the heroes has to undergo trials of strength and courage to prove his valor against a host of monsters - the Minotaur, half man, half bull; Hydra, the many-headed serpent; Medusa the Gorgon. Meanwhile, the gods, lead by Zeus the Thunderer from his seat on Mount Olympus, watch, encourage, help - and sometimes hinder.

    Overall

    This is a quick survey of the principal characters in Greek mythology. It is most helpful to get an idea of who did what to whom and how they were interrelated. It was gory and depressing in places, but I suppose that was how the ancient Greeks understood life. This is certainly not a book for children to hear unless they are quite mature, just like the original Grimm's fairy tales bear little resemblance to what we see in kids books. Overall it was worth the time.
