The dialogue had a modern feel to it that made the story sound fresh and the time period and characters relatable. Details like the fastening of sandals and togas, gently reminded me this was a different time, but the characters drew me in and I took this journey with them.
I loved studying mythology in school and even own a copy of Edith Hamilton's 'Mythology' book so I had to read this book. I wasn't disappointed. Lots of references to familiar names. Hope there are more stories to come in this world.
This is the first time I've heard this narrator, but she sounded like Ari to me and overall did a great job telling the story.
