All mythology and/or Hawthorne lovers unite!

Here is a delightful collection of charming stories from Greek Mythology. This collection features some very popular characters like our beloved Jason, Ulysses, King Pluto and Theseus (and of course, our favorite, Mr. Minotaur, too). Written in Hawthorne's interesting and beautiful style, these stories will be a great delight to read AND listen to. (Summary by Neeru Iyer)

WELL DONE

(4.5 stars)

An enjoyable rework of some myths of old. Smoother than Bullfinch. Unfortunately, "The Pygmirs" wss virtually unintelligible.
