    I have a feeling this is going to be one of those books the academics are going to damn with faint praise becuase it's fun than scholarly Mr Stone keeps it interesting and entertaining but what doesn't work is the travelogue he's added for what I suspect are marketing purposes Well that's not entirely true Mr Stone's travels aren't that interesting but Zeus's are Other than that this is a great addition for those of us who enjoy the myths but don't care about every single aspect of any one story

    I was unaware that this was like a little journal but after I realized it I liked it You follow a man and his wife on their journey through Greece literally in the footsteps of Zues from the beginning all the way up to where a statue of Zues gets transformed for Christian purposes It's uite fascinating and chok full of information that's interesting The only fault I can think of at the moment At some points it bounced a little bit and sometimes you wanted to know a little A good read most definitely


  3. David Rank David Rank says:

    A wonderfully written book combining the retelling of classic Greek myths Greek history and prehistory and a little personal traveloue combined into an informative biography of the god Zeus From Zeus's origins as an amorphous sky god to his anthromorphic minglings with humans and devolution into the Christian era Tom Stone has done a marvelous job sorting through those confusing myths giving them a chronology and fitting them into known history


  4. Tom Tom says:

    Fulfills most of its goals as a biography of Zeus hitting major points revealing gossipy details the reader didn't know sometimes with dazzling writing it's clear Stone was inspired and that's crucial The autobiographical bits could have been excluded and I wish there'd been about Zeus in the daily life of Greeks similar to how Jesus impacts the daily life of Americans


  5. Betsy Phillips Betsy Phillips says:

    Stone does a great job of providing what is in effect a biography of Zeus I wanted a little context for his claims that there was just one Great Mother but that's just a slight uibble I have with what is otherwise a really fun and thought provoking book

  9. Jonny Andres Jonny Andres says:

    This was a pretty dry and very boring read I've actually read tax code with life than this particular book


  10. Pete Pete says:

    Thoroughly readable retelling of the myths along with their context set against historical events and the writer's own travels around Greece Very enjoyable and recommended
