What if you were the missing piece in one of the most famous Greek Mythology Romances?
Seven Seeds of Summer follows the story of Summer, a college art student who has grown up in a house full of Greek mythology and legends. Summer grew up with a love for the darkest of all Gods: Hades, which caused tension between her and her mother. Summer comes home to Point Judith, Rhode Island, to find a mysterious figure on their family beach. The figure comes to her with questions about a familiar myth of her childhood: of Persephone and Hades. He proceeds to tell her of a new version of the story with a different ending that Summer never knew; an ending that includes herself. A trip to Greece leads to tragic twists, leaving Summer in the arms of the strange figure whom she had met before. He takes her on a whirlwind through the busy streets of Athens, to the lowest point of Greece where his lair awaits: The Underworld. Determined to find out the secret of herself and her piece in the story, Summer goes with him, and tries to make herself at home in his world.
Summer has to decide to follow her heart or follow the same footsteps of the mysterious woman in her past life.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Yes, the story overall was decent
What was one of the most memorable moments of Seven Seeds of Summer?
Hard to say. I liked the story but found it difficult to get into. nothing stands out
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narrator sounded robotic. At first i thought it was because i downloaded it over a bad data connection but re-downloaded over wifi and had the same issue. There are odd pauses and it seemed like emphasis was being put on the wrong words in each sentence. This made it difficult for me to get into the story and pay attention.
Could you see Seven Seeds of Summer being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
i think it'd make for a nice young adult film
