This was most certainly bite-sized, though I'm not sure "world mythology" is the description I'd use for this. Overall, it was partially fascinating--if a little brief--and definitely the epitome of the expression, "oh, huh."
I'd recommend this for anyone who has just been introduced to mythology...

Mitolojiye giriş için iyi bir kitap. Ancak aham şahım bir anlatımı yok. Yunan mitolojisi sayfa sayfa anlatılırken koskoca Sümerler on sayfaya sığdırılmış. Sonuç olarak kitap aşırı yüzeysel, bir şeyler anlatıyor ama insanı doyurmuyor.

It doesn’t touch on large amounts of the world (nothing African or Russian for example), and what it does touch on seems to be a gross over simplification, based on the ones I do know about. Having said all that however, what is t...

mitoloji hakkında çok çok özet bilgi almak için okunabilir. Ama ne coğrafyalar ve mitolojiler arasındaki bağıntı, ne de hikayelerin içeriği ve derinliği bence yeterli değil. adı gibi "bir nefeste"; ama doyurmuyor ne yazık ki.
