The Heracliad: The Epic Saga of Hercules - Richard Bertematti

                I tried. I really did. I really, really tried.

                I don’t like this book. I couldn’t finish it.

                The idea is good. Perhaps, if I didn’t know the stories already. Perhaps if I hadn’t watched the Hercules series.

                Perhaps if I was younger.

                There is great attention to detail. Great knowledge on display about ancient myth and history. Full points for that. Bertematti has done his research nicely.

                The writing is absolutely too wordy and too dull. It needs to be cut down and given some vigor. Otherwise very few people are going to make it all the way though the book.
