I love this book. It is like comfort food to me. This was the book that introduced the myth of Deirdre to me, which has become my favorite and makes me cry every time that I read it.

It's really best read with images. You can do so online here - http://archive.org/stream/bookofmyths...

When Icarus was compared to the young people in the beginning of the history of aeroplanes, I fell in love.
I liked a lot of the poems inserted to the various myths. They spiced the stories. The language of the prose is beautiful, you can tell the author truly loved these myths.

I learned a lot. Some of the stories were a bit dry, but for the most part I was sucked into the various stories. My issue was with the switching between the Roman and Greek names for the gods. If you were in a Greek myth, there were Roman names thrown in and vice versa. Made it a bit confusing.
