Very entertaining delivery, content was thought provoking and challenging about so called non-traditional relationship perspectives. Made me feel "I'm not weird!" in relation to my own relationship perspectives.

broad perspective to many of the world's myths. the lecturers used common terminology that wove all the different myths together regardless of the differences in culture.

Once a city of enormous wealth and culture, Prague was home to emperors, alchemists, astronomers, and, as it’s whispered, hell portals. When music student Sarah Weston lands a summer job at Prague Castle cataloging Beethoven’s manuscripts, she has no idea how dangerous her life is about to become. Prague is a threshold, Sarah is warned, and it is steeped in blood. Soon after Sarah arrives, strange things begin to happen.

never heard anyone pronounce "museum" like this narrator and it distracted from story. narrator also chose to use two very different sounding voices as there were 2 perspectives but both of those perspectives were in the 3rd person again this confused me. never really got into feeling for the main characters but the supporting characters were interesting.
