    One thought on “Famous Men of Greece”

    1. It was fun to read about the Greek gods The one person that really stands out the most to me was Aristotle He had such an interesting look on life and death.

    2. Although written for ages 9 through 14 at the end of the 19th century and early 20th century, I found this book highly informative as a survey of all the various events and personalities that shaped Ancient Greece and a great deal of Western civilization from its mythology to its philosophers and leaders, Haaren provides very readable stories, and I found that I had developed better knowledge and awareness from reading it and humbled from it which actually is a good thing because this is only a [...]

    4. Short and sweet I listened to the free audiobook version of this available from Librivox on my Android phone I chose this particular book based on the title alone, and so had no idea what to expect really This is geared towards people who nothing about ancient Greece and are interested in learning Probably meant for young adults as well It was entertaining and informative as a primer, but I can t say that I personally learned anything new from it Still, worth listening to for anyone of any age [...]

    5. Good overview of Greece I would have liked something to go along with this to beef it up just a bit Next time I will make a timeline and use a map I kept getting confused on who did what and when.

    6. I don t like that the author talks about mythical figures as actual living people The book should have been about the lives of real men, not gods.
