9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Cinzia DiTaranto on May 4, 2005
Format: Paperback
This novel is an excellent introductory book for young readers and a great refresher for long time mythology lovers.

Coolidge puts structure in the book so that beginners can learn in an easy to understand context. Coolidge provides major sections like Stories of the Gods, Love of the Gods, Rivalry of the Gods, etc.

The format is character driven, readers can look up a name, find the subtitle with that name, and enjoy the wonderful mythical stories.

For mythology lovers it provides for a easy to use reference guide as most of the sections can be read in minutes.

I highly recommended it.
