Primarily for the YA audience, I suppose. All in all, a hurried affair. No doubt Graves needed to generate some cash flow, so he took an afternoon off to knock out a quickie. I kind of like, however, his trope of introducing the Olympians by imagining a dinner party at which each is seated at table, boy//girl, boy/girl, according to rank. ( )

Extremely enjoyable retelling of the myths; intended for older children but can be enjoyed by adults. ( )
