    One thought on “Mythologie voor Dummies

    1. Ethan

      Its kind of going to be hard to do a review for this book, as it is a different kind of book than that of which the reviews are based upon, but here goes nothing. In my opinion, the author used a good sense of humor in helping the reader to further understand the subject matter. To add on to my review, I shall review the gods and goddesses like they were the characters, as the author did not create any. The actual stories of the heroes, not the gods, are what actually interested me, as they didn [...]

      + gut geeignet zum Einstieg in die Thematik oder zur Auffrischung+ angenehmer Schreibstil, nicht zu wissenschaftlich, aber auch nicht zu flapsig/umgangssprachlich+ auch einige nicht-europäische Mythen/Götter werden besprochen, z. B. die der Maya oder welche aus Japan- starke Konzentration auf griechische und römische Mythologie (die Hälfte des Buches handelt nur davon), dadurch kommen andere - die mich mehr interessiert hätten - deutlich zu kurz- einige nicht-europäische Mythen werden komm [...]

      I love the "for Dummies" series of books for providing solid, straightforward introductions on all manner of subjects. This one is no exception. It's not meant to be the be all and end all of mythology guides -- it's very shallow, and just scratches the surface when it comes to the myriad of different myths and cultural legends out there.But I loved it for going beyond Greek and Roman, and even turning on a few lightbulbs for me regarding Hebrew and Hindu mythology. So, a good starter book for f [...]

      I read this as background to an OU course [A330 Myth in the Greek and Roman Worlds] and it was a bit of a curate's egg. The first 187 pages really refer to Greek and Roman myth and whilst there was some interesting stuff on theories of myths, common types of myth and early Roman religion a lot of it was retelling myths in the light hearted 'Dummies' series style. I was particularly disappointed in the section on Ovid's 'Metamorphoses' which didn't really get to grips with Ovid's own transformati [...]

      This book should be read by anyone and everyone. We have lost touch with what the word "myth" actually means. To many it referrers to some kind of misconception. A myth is a story! It's a story about gods (yes, real live creator gods~) and the human's that "they" created's relationship with them. I have a strong feeling that the true meaning of MYTH will soon be recognized by everyone for what it truly is~

      This one should have been titled "Mythology by Dummies". It is dull, repetitive, and filled with lame attempts at being hip and humorous, typos, grammatical errors, omissions, inconsistencies (in the section on King Arthur, Margawse is listed as Arthur's half-sister in one paragraph, and then as his aunt in the very next paragraph), and factual errors (the Great Pyramids at Giza get moved upriver to somewhere outside Luxor).

    7. Crystal

      Good overview of mythology from various cultures throughout history. My biggest complaint is the plethora of "(see preceding section)" throughout the entire book. The authors adding this statement every other paragraph truly affected the fluidity of the book. If the parenthesis with redundant phrases were removed from the book it would probably be 50 pages shorter.

    8. Xenia Krutsch

      Insgesamt hat mir das Buch gut gefallen. Zwei Sterne Abzug gibt es für folgende Punkte:- Die Sätze waren sehr kurz und abgehackt- Die Grammatik ließ teilweise zu wünschen übrig- Viel Unnötiges wurde als Filler dazugeschrieben- Viele Wiederholungen die mich verwirrt habenWer gerne mehr über Mythologie erfahren möchte, dem kann ich dieses Buch empfehlen.

    9. Jennifer B.

      For me, the Dummy guides are always fun and quite useful, much like the Idiot guides. I liked this mythology guide more than the Idiots one, however, for the simple fact that it went beyond just the usual Greek and Roman myths. True, it only scratched the surface of the entire subject, but it's a good refresher course, or for giving a solid base to work with.

    10. Caitlin

      It is a decent reference and Blackwell has a good sense of humor. But it is very superficial. It was hard to keep everything straight. But if you already have a back ground in mythology I can see it being useful to look something up quickly.

    11. Sylvia

      Good background information about mythology around the world. The Greek and Roman myths take the greatest part, but Indian, Chinese and Japanese myths are explained too. Nice book which is a good reference book afte reading.

    12. Tara Schaeffler

      so far very informative. I like that it does not conform to any one religion, stays completely fact based.
