I read this before, and trust me, the way George O' Connor writes this book, is outstanding. You should definetely read this. It is worth the time you spend.

I can't wait to read this book!

Every entry in this series by O'Connor is rewarding, but each volume offers something unique. Here, it's the creepy, awe-inspiring visualization of Zeus's battle with the Titans.

I've always had troubles picturing what the battle between Zeus and his father would look like. This book does an excellent job at not only portraying the battle between the big three and the titans, but also of giving each character an original design. The art is beautiful and very detailed. The book is a quick read, but definitely worth it.

This entire series by O'conner is excellent. Not just an excellent graphic depiction of greek mythos, but simply good telling of the greek mythos overall.This series is perfect for the child first exploring greek mythology, and for the adult who wants to revisit these myths. The myths are made understandable, but they are not as watered down as they normally are. O'conner does an amazing job balancing the content of the myths within a PG level story so that you really don't lose much of the original story. The conversation is good, it feels real, and has nuggets of other myths inside it. Even if you disagree with his interpretations I think you'll enjoy the work. Read them.
