I love mythology. I love it even more when I get a nice surprise and land in a book that has a nice mix of rare content you don’t find in every other book out there.
I was surprised to find the myth I got my daughters name included in this book. Especially given how hard it was for me to find anything on that myth when I was choosing a name.
My favourite section was the “Two Spirits”. New territory for me and very interesting.
If you’re looking for a book that covers the myths you love and are used to hearing but also want something new, this is that book.
The one small change I would have made with this book would have been to include more pronunciations with names.
Some had it, some didn’t and some of them that didn’t were brain twisters.
The writing is smooth, the myths are easy to understand, and the content gives you plenty to think about.
It was a great read over all. I would definitely recommend it, and read it again.
A great read for those curious and seasoned mythology lovers alike.
