Percy Jackson's Greek Heroes by Rick Riordan
Percy Jackson has been recruited to write another book explaining Greek mythology -- this time focusing on Greek heroes. He tells us the stories of several Greek heroes including Psyche, Perseus, Otrera, Hercules, Jason, and Atalanta.
I listened to this on audio. For the most part I enjoyed it. The slightly disrespectful take on the Greek myths are interesting and humorous for the most part. I did find towards the end I was becoming a little tired of the very unhappy endings to the stories -- but that is the Greek myths for you. Very few of them had happy endings.
