A Great Greek Telling

I will be the first to admit that I had no idea who Clytemnestra even was and I did myself the greatest favor I could ever do and NOT look her up. It made this book all the more gripping because I was so invested in her story and at the edge of my seat awaiting her fate.

Early on, I became terribly invested in her character and felt myself grow physically upset as things happened to her that I believed unjust. This made the ending all the more complex, but arguably more enjoyable, as I questioned her choices or watched the consequences of her actions despite knowing what she was feeling or why she would do what she did.

This was such a quick, easy read for me. The prose didn't read as anything life changing, but it made it easier for me to focus on the story as a whole and get sucked in.

Overall, this was an enchanting read that I would recommend to anyone that is interested in Greek mythology or stories.
