I think I liked this one the most, as I’ve always wondered where the origins of various myths (and by extension legends) lie. It was quite fascinating learning about how human history has inspired so many myths.

The very first chapter is titled “What is a Myth?” and it was a very interesting chapter that spoke about Neanderthals and their beliefs etc. Also learning about the the three different periods and their mythologies, the civilisations and transformation that Armstrong talks about was really cool as there were a lot of things I didn’t know.


Stay true yourself, and never let anyone deter you from the course you wish to take.
