Ghouls, Ghosts, Gods and Goblins—this book has them all! Since my arrival in America, reading books has never been a part of my hobbies. However, since a friend recommended this book to me about 2 years ago, I have probably read the entire thing four times from cover to cover! I was never a real fan of printed books or media; I would rather watch something than read. This book has changed my perspective on how printed media can influence one's life on a personal level positively, and through it’s influence, I've been more interested in reading other books as well. One of my favorite things about this novel is that it builds curiosity and appeals to one's imagination. Now that I'm a college student, reading my required textbooks has never been easier. I would recommend everyone read this book (at least once). Everyone should learn Greek mythology; therefore, everyone should buy this book. Thank you, Rex Warner, for looking out for the public good and creating something that can be enjoyed by everyone; it is definitely worth two thumbs up and a five star rating.
Review: Men and Gods: Myths and Legends of the Ancient GreeksUser Review - Goodreads
Haven't read Greek myths since middle school English class. This was a nice translation of some of the most famous stories. Gorey's illustrations are great, I would have welcomed more of them.
