Seems like it will be a page turner
Who doesn't love a good greek mythology read? I love greek mythology and so this book's first look was no exception. I love descriptions like this one that were in the excerpt: "Outside the window, the sky is orange- flushed. Someone is singing in the village, and the air is hot and sweet." I also loved the descriptions of what the characters were doing like this one "She dismisses them with a wave of the hand, and they slip out of the room, as silent as fish moving through water." Particularly the part where she states they are slipping out of the room as silent as fish moving through water. I love how easy and smooth of a read this book seems to be. "There are two wooden stools where their dresses are neatly folded, a water bowl, and a bed of Egyptian ebony—a gift from the Athenian Theseus to Helen when she was fourteen". The bed of egyptian ebony seems so aristocratic and high class I can't even imagine it but I had fun trying. This book seems like it will be a page turner and one that I will be glued to.
