This is the best! Thomas really did put all his effort into writing this book and should get a reward
I read this last in high school over 30 years ago. It made such an impression on me that I still recall the well written tales, the detail of the narrative.

That may have been the enthusiasm of a young person first encountering mythology. I was already an imaginative youngster when I first read this. It captivated me so much I flew through the nearly 1000 pages. These are stories of a magical alternate reality. This is a classic for all ages. Highly recommended, especially at this price.
