|User Summary:||Your parents may have found evidence of the existence of Olympus, palace of the gods, but they'll lose their funding unless they can prove that their discovery is genuine. Your grandmother suggests that you ask Zeus for advice on getting proof, and you attempt to do just that....|
As the plot summary suggests, this is a strange little book, but it works quite well. During your search for Zeus you get a chance to participate in a number of different Greek myths and you meet lots of famous mythological figures ranging from Icarus to Cerberus. The book would make a fairly good introduction to Greek mythology, though some of the stories could have benefitted from a bit more background detail.
|Enigmatic Synergy's Thoughts:||
Not a bad book by any stretch. Even though, I admit, I am not the most educated individual in terms of Greek mythology and Greek figures, I still found this to be an entertaining read nonetheless. This book provided for an informative read in which I was both pleased and educated upon its completion. Given that the book has (as listed) 30 endings, many of them come fairly quick. More background information on some of the ancient figures would have been nice, but ultimately, I enjoyed this one.
Why is it even in the series? 0.5/10
This is the first Choose Your Own Adventure book I ever owned. I consider it to be one of the best in the series, due to the excellent depiction of Greek mythology, as well as the large variety of adventures available through the various paths in the book. It also has a fair amount of positive endings available, but any path you follow provides some interesting insight. Highly recommended.
