Walk among the gods and goddesses men and monsters in this enchanting volume of classic Greek myths Here are twelve of the most beloved legends of Greek mythology from Pandora and her dreaded box to Icarus with his wings of wax and. What a beautiful book 12 popular Greek myths most of which I have known before are retold in this book along with gorgeous illustrations Some parts are retold differently than what I have known for example King Minos demanded 7 men and 7 women from Athens to be sacrificed for the Minotaur every year because his son was killed by the Athenians during some sort of Olympic games not because his chief architect Daedalus an Athenian escaped from the island of Crete along with his son Icarus However as myths may go there can be different versions of a story that s acceptable to me From all the Greek myths I have read now I can conclude that my favorite Greek hero is probably Perseus since he was such a strong courageous and faithful man to his cause as well as to the woman who was involved with him with was Andromeda He was unlike Theseus who slayed the Minotaur with the help of Ariadne then went back on his words and abandoned her My most favorite retold female character in these 12 stories must be Medea since in this book she was built up to be a strong courageous and independent woman who wanted nothing to do with the hero Jason after seeing him for he truly was a physically strong man but mentally weak If Medea had actually left Jason after helping him take the Golden Fleece from her father like it was retold in this book then I think her life would have been less miserable and less unfortunate than what was told in the actual myth Just saying girlpower
