For nearly seventy years readers have chosen this book above all others to discover the thrilling enchanting and fascinating world of Western mythology From Odysseus's adventure filled journey to the Norse god Odin's effort to postpone the final day of doom Edith Hamilton's classic collection not only. 4 StarsWow So this took me almost a full year to get through And no I m not actually joking shocking I know GR says I started this in Augustof 2018 But what can I say Aside from the fact that I am probably just too dumb and too uncultured to truly enjoy this thing to it s full capacityI m also not a pretentious asshole who is going to pretend I lurved it to pieces just to look smart And no I am not suggesting anyone who says they love this is a liar One of my BBF GR buds Ana O really does love this But she s also way smarter and interesting than me so there s that Don t get me wrong though I really enjoyed the book as a whole especially the stunning artwork as I m a sucker for pretty pictures but not gonna lie I got confused by all the names and incest and relationships a lot And I am one of those people who will flip back to the family tree or index pages to refresh my memory which is probably one of the many reasons why it took me so long to read this But I digress I love that I read this because it definitely taught me that a lot of things I thought I knew about mythology was totally incorrect But that s what happens when you trust the accuracy of Hollywood Marvel and Percy Jackson as applied to REAL mythology My bad I also love knowing that I now have this beautiful book on my shelves for future reference So I consider this a win and I m glad I thoughtfully read every page instead of rushing through it Thanks Ana for the recommendation
