They say you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but Clytemnestra’s cover is just so pretty, drop-dead gorgeous. I haven’t read many Greek mythology retelling, but they’re always on my radar. I’m not usually a big fan of historical fiction, but I’ll always give them a try before completely dismissing them. Before getting into the actual story, there are a few details that I really enjoy seeing in books. There are a few family trees, which I like, especially when the trees are so complicated (i.e. anything dealing with Greek mythology). The little illustrations throughout are so pretty, I enjoyed the poem at the beginning of Part I, and there are chapter titles! I love chapter titles! To get into the writing, it was pretty, but the story had a bit of a slow start. I’m willing to sit down with it again once the book comes out and I can read the whole thing, but the slow start can be off putting for some people. Overall, I will probably read it.
