Fascinating modern incarnation of mythology
What did you love best about Greek Gods?
I'm a big fan of mythology from around the world, and the way this book weaves them with one another is just endlessly fascinating to me.
What did you like best about this story?
I always felt like I *almost* knew what was going on... but not quite. If you know your myths, then you have an idea what might happen, but you're always just off-balance enough to be surprised by what happens next.
Which scene was your favorite?
I couldn't begin to pick a favorite!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes and no--I didn't want to leave it, but I wanted it to last as long as possible!
