    "A very descriptive guide"

    The author obviously did his homework before putting this book together. I found it be an intriguing amount of information. Although it was almost in the form on a verbal family tree. It did spark my interest in some of Matt's other books as well.

    "Great begginers guide!"

    Always wanted to learn about Greek Myths. This a great stepping-stone book, as I realized through this book that Greek Mythology is more complexed than I originally thought it was.

    "it's great to have in a bag for delivery"

    I guess this is very cool! It is a little bit small of an AUDIObook in original timing. However, it's great to have in a bag for delivery.

    "This is a comprehensive resource about Greek"

    This is a comprehensive resource, though, I was expecting to use it in the classroom and it is written higher than my middle schoolers. More just an FYI this audiobook is more info not really any stories.

    "This masterpiece one of the best books"

    This masterpiece one of the best books I have ever read or listen. Normally, Greek mythology is boring or do not mind or is fearful, though this was wonderful. It's a combination of different stories about gods, heroes, and stories regarding the gods. I believe anyone who is considering this book should positively listen to it.
