The Serpent's Teeth (Penguin Epics, #9) - Ovid This book consists of Books III, IV, V and VI of of Ovid's Metamorphosis. It's a very readable translation, but still a bit hard to keep up with so many people and places. I was familiar with most of the stories individually but the way they were tied one into another made things confusing for me. It's a story inside a story inside another story, so by the end of the third one you barely remember what was happening on the first one.
