The Face of Apollo: The First Book of the Gods | [Fred Saberhagen]

The Face of Apollo: The First Book of the Gods

Ancient Greece has many heroes. Young Jeremy Redthorn, seemingly doomed to virtual slavery as a farm laborer, doesn't think of himself as one. But when he risks his life for a beautiful, wounded stranger, he soon finds himself on a perilous mission. What he doesn't realize is that the mask he must deliver can confer upon its wearer the powers of a god. And, unfortunately for Jeremy, that god wants it back.

    I hold a BA in History from York University of Toronto; a 3yr Diploma in Computer Networking from Sheridan College in Oakville Ontario. I have been "reading" audio books sinces the late 80s and a member of Audible back to 2004. What a really like is a good long story preferable over 30 hours. :)

    Story
    "Faces of the Gods seems a copy of Peirs Anthony"

    This has very much the same favor, writing style and plot as Peirs Anthony's Incarnation of the Immortals books.

    While this is set in the distance post technology era; it has so little to do with the story that it could be set in the past or on another plant for all the effect it has.

    It's a pretty good story but there is little original about it.The author does distrubening seem to have failed to read any actual Greek Myths. Apollo is for unclear reason set to be a dark hair youth not a gold hair one.

    It's rather like somewhat slate popcorn; it not bad but not that good.
