I enjoyed listening to this book.

I enjoyed listening to this book. It is a very nice overview of the major mythologies of history. It explains some things that I did not know and it made me realize how many themes some mythologies have in common even though they were from different regions.

Very well explained and entertaining.

Fast moving yet thorough overview of the overarching characters and events in Greek Mythology. This is perfect for someone who wants to know enough to be conversant on the topic. More than just conversant, this book provides some unique tidbits that surprised and educated me. Very well explained and entertaining.
