These stories of heroes and powerful gods and goddesses are set forth simply and movingly, in language that retains the power and drama of the original works by Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, and Homer.

This book has good stories and interesting characters but is too long. Gustav Schwab is a good author. This book has some of the better stories from Greek Mythology, including The Argonauts, Prometheus, and a lot more. I can't say it's the best but it is good.
