This book is very quick, and seems to be just like a text book, except it doesn't explain things good at all. The characters come and go without much description, making you forget about some of them, and have to go back to read the beginning part all over again, which is quite annoying. Also, it does teach about Greek mythology, but it feels as if it were forced, like all of a sudden Hermes gets a mission from Zeus, and he just goes and says hi to about everyone in Greek mythology, and comes back with a weird and stupid ending. I wish I hadn't read this book at all, because it totally ruined the Greek book stuff for me. I think you should just stick to The Percy Jackson series, and DO NOT READ THIS BOOK. Use a textbook instead. It's the basically same thing. So no, the book is totally lame and NOT worth it at all.
