The Age of FableThe Age of Fable by Thomas Bulfinch
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Reading Thomas Bulfinch’s ‘The Age of Fable’ is about as much fun as trying to read an encyclopedia, by shoving pages up your bottom, whilst eating a bowl of sprouts. You know that this summary of mythology is meant to be good for you, much like sprouts and encyclopedias, but there has to be a better way. It covers mostly Greek and Roman myths, with a little Norse mythology thrown in for good measure, and would make a reasonable reference for Classics students. Just don’t attempt to digest the whole thing in one sitting.
