With healthy doses of wit and wisdom, Julius Lester's disarming narrative leads us through the tale of Cupid and Psyche and helps us navigate our own treacherous passions.
"For fans of romance and mythology, this is highly entertaining. Lester casts the two protagonists as adolescents coming of age through the trials and ultimate triumph of their love." (Publishers Weekly)
I've never been able to stomach literary classics, because of huge language/cultural/time gulf that tend to separate 'classics' from younger generations...but I absolutely loved this! I almost listened to the entire book, with "soap opera" enthusiasm, because it was tht good.
The narrator had a 'comforting' effect on me, while at the same time making the story-line as juicy as it could be!
