Greek Mythology's Twelve Labors Of Hercules is a story that starts about the reader and how a bully wants to beat them up after school but sadly does not have the bravery for confrontation. From a glowing book that the reader finds, it goes on to tell about a man named Hercules, son of the King God Zeus, who has been being targeted by his fathers jealous wife, the Goddess Hera, since he was born. So he goes to the oracle who tells him that he must go to his cousin, King Eurystheus. a cruel, selfish King who sits upon the throne in Mycenae who gives him twelve impossible tasks to seek what he desires: immortality.
Greek Mythology's Twelve Labors Of Hercules was an entertaining adventure that kept me guessing on the choices I had to make. I was easily able to enjoy this book cause I am a fan of Greek mythology. Some things I enjoyed about it was that it was a 'choose your own path' story. But also how it was easily put into terms that anyone could understand.
The only thing that I could see someone getting upset about this book, is if someone wanted more information about the characters.
I would defiantly recommend this book to others because it tells the story in a way that's fun for others to read but also doesn't turn it into a novel to make it uninteresting to readers who can't stay still.
Explain your content rating:
There is no cursing, sex, or drugs in this book. The only thing making it mature is that it implies that the character can die and that they die in many different ways. Nothing too gruesome.
