Editorial Reviews

Review

Mythology:  our poems, our novels, and even our daily journals teem with classical allusions; nor can a visit to our art galleries and museums be fully enjoyed without something more than a mere superficial knowledge of a subject which has in all ages inspired painters, sculptors, and poets.

4.0 out of 5 stars My Opinion May 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a great read. I got started when my wife and I were reading the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. I wanted to know more about the mythology and it was really interesting and informative. Definitely recommend it for anyone curious about The Greek and Roman gods.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the Best, but damned good January 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There's something comforting in reading these legends of Ancient Gods and Goddesses. I've read better, but this is a very close second and I really liked the way the relations of the Legends flow nicely from one to another.

1.0 out of 5 stars Embarrassing December 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
What an embarrassing piece of work. Berens litters most of the retellings of the myths and legends with his over-arching commentary on how each mythological tale and archetype is essentilly the work of a "savage", "crude" or "unrefined" civilization.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lot to Read February 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the kind of book you go back to for reference. If the author has left out any Greek or Roman diety that ever was invoked, somebody smarter than me will have to point out the omission. Very complete.

4.0 out of 5 stars great book so-so etext edition December 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nice introduction to Greco-Roman Mythology. Concise with just enough information. Enjoyable for those who what to get a basis in the Greco-Roman mythology. The e-text functions properly and you can change the font size without chasing the text clear out of view. Unfortunately, this e-edition does not show a link to the TOC in the go to window. If you go to the beginning and backspace you find an interactive TOC with usable links. Unfortunately, the link does not quite get you to the chapter you are looking for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Informative May 18, 2014
By Brandon
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the fact that this book went into detail into all the relationships of the gods. However I did not like how at time the story seemed incoherent and didn't make sense. Good book though to anyone who is interested on Greek Mythology

I had this small book as a child and I wanted it to be part of my collection. It is a good reference to information on the old myths of Greek and other countries.
