By Kathleen N Daly

It is a nice e-book for those who simply have to lookup a few quickly details on a Greek or Roman god. It does cross into element on the various extra vital characters like Hercules, yet so much simply have a couple of paragraphs. My major criticism is that although it says "Greek AND ROMAN Mythology" approximately seventy five% of the characters lined are Greek in starting place. it really is great that every personality is classified as both Greek or Roman although. This made writing my Roman Mythology paper a lot more straightforward. an outstanding e-book for a person drawn to Mythology :)
