      Plenty better books on the market

      I boguht this book at a school book fair for around 6 pounds as I love myths, especially Greek ones. I expected a lot of stories, but on looking inside there were only 4. I was disappointed with the amount of content in the book, the stories did last a while but weren't very impressively written, and I'm certain there are better Greek mythology books on the market. For 6 pounds it's not worth it. Expensive for a book in my opinion!

      The stories include Perseus, Odysseus and Hercules. My favourite was Hercules, although, still, I wasn't that impressed. I actually felt quite annoyed with myself for buying the book in the first place and I knew I'd wasted my money. In retrospect I should've looked for other Greek mythology books on sale before purchasing this one. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who has a thorough interest in Geek myths. However for anyone with a limited knowledge, or no knowledge of these myths at all, it's a good introduction. I'd say the book is aimed more towards younger readers, it isn't that informative and as I have an interest in the myths I would have obviously liked a lot more factual information.

      The stories take about an hour each to read, well that's how long they took me anyway. But yeah, a waste of money!
