I've only recently began my study of Greek and I haven't really chosen a textbook yet. I was wondering if Athenaze is good book. Some of you seem to hate this book with a passion, and I don't know why as it appears to be a good text.

I don't have Athenaze but I have gone through a few lessons of it.
It seemed okay to me. I got the impression that it was a 'relaxed' sort of book with a story that develops as you gain vocabulary and grammar knowledge.

It works terribly as a sole or even a main textbook because it is so limp about grammar. It might work better as an accompaniment or confidence builder, since reading the stories will briefly trick you into thinking that Greek is easy, but otherwise steer clear.
