I got this for my son to go along with his Percy Jackson books. They made him want more information about mythology. I’m so glad I purchased it.

Great guide to the Roman Gods and Myths. Lists the major gods, minor gods, most the "monsters", and a ton of other stuff. Easy to read and understand.

Impressive

For someone like me who knows nothing about Roman mythology and has had trouble finding a source that explains it in an easy-to-understand way, this book is awesome. I'm now kicking my husband's butt on Jeopardy when Roman mythology questions appear.

Awesome Book

I loved every moment of this book. It focuses mainly on Roman mythology. I appreciate that she lists her sources for each story at the beginning of the chapter and telling of these myths are easily understand, but not over simplified and the result is highly enjoyable.

Simply, the best book on Roman Mythology

I listen to this as an introduction to Roman mythology and it's a clearly written book that will serve handy as a reference. It's best to be picked up and read story by story every now and then rather than straight through.

Short But Very Informative

This book was suggested for my stepson who is in an advanced studying level and loves mythology. He not only loves fantasy, but he loves true mythology and he absolutely loves this book. After researching I have discovered that this is a true book of mythology for one who really want to know more.

Useful Book

This book flows easily from one story to the next. She gives you a clear explanation of who each god/goddess was and what they represented. Their family trees are given but she also explains it throughout the book. Overall, it's a very nice book.

Good Choice

The audiobook is exactly what was expected. However, the cover was not on correctly which led to some unfortunate creasing. Thankfully it was mostly on the back fold.
