Mythology Trilogy: Greek Mythology - Norse Mythology - Egyptian Mythology (Gods, Myths, Legends, Mythology) Reviews
Mr. Weaver's three booklets on ancient mythology have been designed as miniature primers for the uninitiated. I have a real problem with the choices he makes. For example, there is no real mention of Theseus, Jason, Odysseus's return, Heracles death, etc., etc. On the other hand, the pamphlets mostly consists of lists of names (who beget whom, who raped whom, who killed whom, and so on) and places (like the Nine Worlds of the Norse mythology). There is also a tendency to incorporate semi-historical figures into the mythological context, without trying to point out the differences between truth and myth (see Norse invasion of France and Rome). In my opinion the mythology as described by Mr. Weaver misses the main point, i.e. the beauty, the excitement, the tragic struggling with fate – all that makes myths, especially the Greek myths, so relevant and up-to-date. The book also suffers from numerous typos, syntax, and grammar problems. If you're really interested in mythology, read Edith Hamilton's classical work, or even better – read a modern translation of the Iliad and the Odyssey.
I really found this book interesting and cool because it had a lot of facts I didn't know. But I did notice there were a TON of typos. I feel like some of the history stuff was out of place too. But over all great book!
In my opinion, the book is wonderful. I found out some things that I didn't know. I would definitely recommend this.
Typos and incomplete passages are there but overall a very good overview for any to use as a summary to lead to further details. I would give it 5 stars for just overview.
Nice but not deep enough
I enjoy reading about mythology!!!
My 12 year old daughter is very interested in mythology. She became engrossed in the Percy Jackson series and has been interested in mythology every since. She is particularly interested in Greek mythology, but enjoyed this entire series. It's a great series for someone interested in the topic, but it's a bit of a dry read. There is a lot of excellent information packed into the series, so if you're someone who likes to read for learning purposes you will enjoy this. If you'd rather read an exciting fiction novel, like the Percy Jackson series, you may not find this series quite as interesting. Thanks to her interest in mythology, my daughter is doing an oral report for school on the subject and was able to find a lot of helpful information in these books.
