    With 80 pages including the index, this book provides a brief overview of Roman myths and legends Though I love reading about the ancient world, I have never focused upon the Roman world s stories, so I did quite enjoy this book However, I think that for anyone better versed in the stories and traditions, they might want to read a book that goes into depth and looks at the ancient sources.

    Ce petit livre n est pas ce quoi je m attendais J aurais voulu lire des histoires et des l gendessur l histoire de Rome bref quelque chose de grand public.Au lieu de a, j ai lu une analyse d universitaire qui discute du pourquoi des multiples variantes de chaque mythe On saute d une poque une autre au paragraphe suivant, il faut suivre Le chapitre d introduction est tr s confus, rebutant.Veuillez chez lecteur r viser pr alablement avec Wikipedia Le style ou la traduction n est pas de bonne facture M me si quelques histoires sont tr s int ressantes, le livre est loin de m avoir s duit Dommage.

    This is a very short overview of the important stand alone Roman myths which may be comprehensive, since they largely relied on the Greek myths If you want a concise summary, this is for you.

    A pretty good book for those interested in Roman myths, especially as distinct from Greek myths.

    A good first primer, slightly tongue in cheek.
