Over the millennia, there have been hundreds of mythological gods belonging to many different civilisations.

They can murder, cheat, trick and otherwise take revenge on both humans and deities alike.

Some are condemned, while others escape with impunity.

A fun and informative look at the bad side of mythological deities.

This worked well with the mythology, I enjoyed how fun the concept was and that it didn’t just have one mythology based. The characters felt like they were supposed to and enjoyed the elements of this book. John McKie has a great idea in this book and left me wanting to read more from him.

“Gods Behaving Badly” by John McKie

I really liked this book. There was so much interesting lore of different cultures gods and talks about the good and bad of the gods and how some gods get vilified and other nefarious acts are brushed under the rug. I definitely recommend people to read this book. I liked how the book was structured and wasn’t confused when the subject was changed. I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars.

An interesting read, not exactly a page turner but it not written to be. A welcome change to my usual reading preferences
