Awesome! If you know what you're reading...

This book is meant to be informational rather than narrative despite the fact that it details some narrative stories and anecdotes. It's purpose is to be a sort of all encompassing encyclopedia of Greek mythology and it does this extremely well. It is meticulously detailed and elaborate, and will most definitely entertain and capture you if you're appreciate what it offers! A worthwhile read! Though not a lazy one to be certain.
A few grammar mistakes, but overall very impressive; I've learned a bit more about Greek and Roman mythology.
Ancient Greek and Roman myths
By Greek and Roman myths
This book basically tells you every mythical fact of Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. I just love it!!
This book is not very good since they mix up the roman and Greek Gods and goddesses in the story also it's really boring and waaayyy to long, there are some useful things but there's a majority of errors in the stories
It took me nine weeks to finish this book.
I was told to read a random book, and only read thirty pages per day. I found a random book about Greek mythology, and I thought "why not?" I started reading, only to find out that the book is almost a thousand pages long.
It was good.

The author and his here and/or affiliates must have put QUITE a bit of effort into this. Kudos. Kudos, indeed.
Biggest book that I've read...and I couldn't put it down.
Has everything you need to know about mythology
This is a great intro to Greek myths & also a nice read for those more familiar bits broken up into mini backgrounds as well as full stories.

Amazing apple and iTunes are the best but the books are so expensive
E.M. Berens The want of an interesting work on Greek and Roman mythology, suitable for
the requirements of both boys and girls, has long been recognized by the
principals of our advanced schools. The study of the classics themselves, even
where the attainments of the pupil have rendered this feasible, has not been
found altogether successful in giving to the student a clear and succinct idea
of the religious beliefs of the ancients, and it has been suggested that a work
which would so deal with the subject as to render it at once interesting and
instructive would be hailed as a valuable introduction to the study of classic
authors, and would be found to assist materially the labours of both master and
In endeavouring to supply this want I have sought to place before the reader
a lifelike picture of the deities of classical times as they were conceived and
worshipped by the ancients themselves, and thereby to awaken in the minds of
young students a desire to become more intimately acquainted with the noble
productions of classical antiquity.
It has been my aim to render the Legends, which form the second portion of
the work, a picture, as it were, of old Greek life; its customs, its
superstitions, and its princely hospitalities, for which reason they are given
at somewhat greater length than is usual in works of the kind.
In a chapter devoted to the purpose some interesting particulars have been
collected respecting the public worship of the ancient Greeks and Romans (more
especially of the former), to which is subjoined an account of their principal
I may add that no pains have been spared in order that, without passing over
details the omission of which would have marred the completeness of the work,
not a single passage should be found which could possibly offend the most
scrupulous delicacy; and also that I have purposely treated the subject with
that reverence which I consider due to every religious system, however
It is hardly necessary to dwell upon the importance of the study of
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. It therefore only
remains for me to express a hope that my little work may prove useful, not only
to teachers and scholars, but also to a large class of general readers, who, in
whiling away a leisure hour, may derive some pleasure and profit from its
