I really liked this book, I learned a lot of reasons why Greeks did stuff like I learned why it was easier to travel by sea and some other stuff but that's what I remember most about. I also liked that it would ask a question then the book would answer it with a bunch of cool facts. I'm really happy that I chose this book because it was very interesting to read and I learned a lot but I really do wonder why Greeks built temples well I guess I'll find out some other time.
