Boring!

I wasted a credit on this book and took a chance on a none reviewed book. I've downloaded a few Mythological books and have really enjoyed them. This one was very disappointing, focused too much on where and when the information had come from rather than the tales themselves. It was like listening to a Reference Book being read! Or a Phone Book! I don't really care about in which year BCE it was written in, ok give credit to the writer, but jeeze! Come on! Much better mythology books out there, dont waste a credit or anything over 99p for this one
