Hola.... some very classic stories are held in Edith Hamilton's Mythology. A collection ancient Greek myths, from Echo and Narcissus to the Golden Apple. The reason I got interested in this book was because of Percy Jackson (DUH!). And then this summer my family and I went to Greece, it was really cool to see the land where these fascinating stories took place. And it was really awesome to see one of the Ancient Wonders of the World, the Temple of Zeus at Olympia. These myths also translate to many other ruins, such as the Elgin Marbles (saw those in London), the Parthenon (dedicted to Athena, patron goddess of Athens), and so many others. I don't recommend this book to people who are known to drop books if they get boring. But, if you are willing to stick it out, you won't regret reading it. Three and a half stars!
