    Mostly non sensical There were a handful of pretty decent ones that I ll probably circle back around to read Which is saying a lot considering how atrocious I view most myth books This book had a few unique ones Granted, it still had the ones without any point.One of the parts I thought was the most odd was toward the end there were Christian stories that had been tweaked to fit barely into their culture Although one story did provide some humor.Tower of Babel they frequently made him drunk, and had connection with him Thus they bore many children, and their father wondered how they became pregnant.
