    I bought this for a mythology paper I had to write in college I love it because it doesn't just focus in on Greek and Roman mythology but myths from all over the world It's not a boring readit's kind of like Mythology Chic Lit light and airy The goddess on the cover even has red stilettos It doesn't go into huge detail on any one type of myth but kind of flits around so that the reader gets a true sampling of world mythology The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because if you're looking for an in depth look at a specific type of mythology you're not going to find it here It truly is just a sampling It would be good for someone who didn't know a lot about mythology to begin with and just wanted to delve into the genre Mythology snobs would probably turn up their nose at it because of the cover alone If you're obsessed with mythology like I am none of that is going to matter I already knew most of the information on Greek and Roman myth but I did gain some insight into mythology of other cultures that I hadn't really explored before

    This is the mother load of all myths fit into one book i pick this book up after reading my last greek mythology book and i saw that this book had some greek myths in it along with many other culutures myth so i hgave it a shot and i was hooked right away It was really intresting to see how so many religions were so similiar they all had similar storys similar characters and similar powers which i found intresting and scarry I was really thinking while reading this book what if christianity or any of the other major beliefs in our modern society will belook back upon as myths many years from now I found the Roman and Greek myths to be the most intresting out of all mainly because they were like dramas and it was entertaining and i could see how people were trying to explain all the natural disasters and how things worked through the story great book

    I love this book as it tells us myths from all over the world Starting from how the world was created how men were created to the ragnarok itself Plus we got some explanation about major minor goddesses and also major heroes from all myths Written in a story form like this book is really a friendly guide to those who're new to mythology As a newbie myself I found this book to be very useful

    I read this book for a class and I the assigned reading wasn't cover to cover but I did end up reading most of it at some point It's well written and has a ton of myths in it and well it does focus on the Greek Pantheon a bit much for my taste I still really enjoyed it

    This was my textbook in my Myths and Meanings English class my first semester in college and it was excellent So many different mythologies are detailed with little helpful profiles of gods goddesses and creatures Completely fantastic fun read
