Percy Jackson's Greek Gods - Rick Riordan, John Rocco

Just a heads-up: this book is big. I thought it would be the size of a novel, but no, it was closer to the size of a textbook.

 

So, I already knew most of these stories, but damn Percy's commentary sure made it entertaining. Percy Jackson, I officially love you. I also learned a few new stories.

 

Also, there's so much feminism and I love it. Percy points out the inequities between men and women in Greek mythology, and doesn't just gloss over the terrible things women were subjected to.

 

The illustrations are gorgeous too.

 

Now, I am so ready to read Percy Jackson's Greek Heroes.

 

Also, I said I would include some quotes but I returned this book to the library so I can't do that now. Sorry. If I ever reread it, I will definitely include some of my favorite quotes.
