Review: Cliffs Notes on MythologyUser Review - Regina Hunter - Goodreads
Actually a pretty cool book, with attention to a time-line of events, unlike most books that throe everything at you and then try to put it in a line. Also it points its attention to main god and their relations, and unlike other books it also points at facts of historical value. Read full review
