When what begins as a minor squabble between Aphrodite and Apollo escalates into an epic battle of wills, Alice and Neil are caught in the cross fire, and they must fear not only for their own lives, but for the survival of humankind. Nothing less than a true act of heroism is needed, but can these two decidedly ordinary people replicate the feats of the mythical heroes and save the world?
Gods Behaving Badly is that rare thing: a charming, funny, utterly original first novel that satisfies the head and the heart.

My first thought when I started to listen to this book was that the author deserved at least 3 stars for coming up with the idea of the old Greek Gods alive and living, if not well, in London. The reader does an excellent job and I thought it was one of the more delightful books I have listened to in a while. Perhaps not as good as "A Dirty Job" but the first half was funny enough to have me laughing out loud as I listened.
The second half was more serious, but a change was probably needed to get the characters out of the situations they were in after the first half.
All in all I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to listen to something light and who is willing to suspend belief enough to consider a world where one Greek god has become a Christian and where others act as a collection of spolied children. I thought it was great.

Fun Classical Immersion
Great use of the Greek gods in a fun, fun story. Neil and Alice are well-drawn characters with a great sense of love and friendship. Narrator is excellent, voicing each of the gods with their unique personality and delivering a real sense of restraint and decorum to Alice and Neil. Loved it.
