This book was required reading for summer work one year at my high school. Normally, I love mythology, especially Greek and Roman myths.
I despised this book.
If you have read Greek mythology before, you'll know about the goddess of wisdom and war strategy, Athena. This book called her Athene. It's probably not actually wrong, but I couldn't get over it.
On top of that, I felt that the book was incredibly bland to read. I was bored. Also, the selection of myths in the book left quite a bit to be desired. Overall, not a good read. I'd avoid this book if possible. ( )
