i AM AN OLD lATIN STUDENT AND WAS ATTRACTED TO THIS WORK BY A REVIEW IN A BOOK REVIEW PUBLICATION. a FASCINATING AND FUNNY STORY WITH WONDERFUL REFERENCES TO THE ANCIENT GODS. It brings the ancient Roman world to life. The Metamorphoses is a great read for any lover of literature or history.

This is an incomparably ingenious, rarest treasure of ancient literature. The characters and their life full of man-made-idiotic and bloody deeds, under the "government" of their capricious arrogant gods, are clearly reminding one our own postmodern psychology..and endless stupidity, though our's are not as colorful as the ancient version.

The stories are written in a very unique and very playful style that turns to be funny and unexpectedly touching.. You cry and laugh at the same time, throughout the books. This is undoubtely a precious masterpiece - the one that must live forever.

SUPERB APULEIUS is for everyone who wants to hear one of the greatest minds who have ever lived on this planet !
