I WOULD MAKE A GOOD HUSBAND FOR A GIRL LIKE YOU,

I WORK LATE.
I love fables, fairy tales, science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, etc... So, it only stands to reason I would love Greek Mythology. In years past I have picked up books on the subject, but they all seemed either dry or too complicated. The relationships between the Gods can be complicated and they have sex with their sisters, brothers and humans. They have lots of sex, so there is a lot of them that are related.

CRONOS
This book was an absolute joy to listen to. It was easy to understand and the stories were exciting. After listening, I went out and bought the paperback, so I can use it as a reference in the future, but don't just get the book. The reading of this is great.

THE BIBLE
I am not making a statement of any kind, but I do find the coincidence interesting. The Gods have sex with human women all the time and their are stories about half breeds and the Titians. In the NEW AMERICAN BIBLE: Genesis, Chapter 6, verse 4, it reads, THE NEPHILIM APPEARED IN THOSE DAYS AS WELL AS LATER, AFTER THE SONS OF GOD HAD INTERCOURSE WITH THE DAUGHTERS OF HUMAN BEINGS, WHO BORE THEM SONS. THEY WERE THE HEORES OF OLD, THE MEN OF RENOWN. Food for thought.
