    Being immortal is not all it once was. Yes, the 12 Greek gods of Olympus are alive and well in the 21st century, but they are crammed together in a London town house: and are none too happy about it. Even more disturbing, their powers are waning.

    Mike From Mesa says: "Delightful fantasy"
    "Very amusing!"
    Overall

    It's a new twist on an old story! Reminded me a little of wicked. The narrator was very entertaining. I especially liked that the gods didn't act very god-like. All of their gifts and talents had turned into burdens!

    In 17th-century Persia, a 14-year-old woman believes she will be married within the year. When her beloved father dies, she and her mother find themselves alone and without a dowry. With nowhere else to go, they are forced to sell the brilliant turquoise rug the young woman has woven to pay for their journey to Isfahan, where they will work as servants for her uncle, a rich rug designer in the court of the legendary Shah Abbas the Great.

    Shaddi says: "I loved this book!"
    "What a wonderful narrator!"
    Overall

    The woman who narrated it, Shohreh Aghdashloo, is a native of Iran. She is an actress who was in The House of Sand and Fog. Her voice is so soothing. On occasion, she will mispronounce a word, which only adds to her charm. The book is about a young girl who becomes a rug maker. The story arc starts with her happy childhood, her move to the big city, being used by her distant relatives, and finally ends with her leading a life of her own choosing. Intertwined in her tale are several Iranian fairy tales, which give the book a bit of One Thousand and One Nights feel at times.
