This book starts its journey with BookCrossing from Delphi, Greece

"In Greek mythology, Medusa was a Gorgon - a winged monster with snakes for hair. Anyone who looked at her was instantly turned to stone. But she wasn't born that way. Not even close.
Athena was so jealous of Medusa's beauty that she cursed her. Zeus changed the story to make his son, Perseus, look good.

Hades is here to set the record straight on Perseus, Medusa, and everything in between. "

I was curious for this series and in need of something light, so I picked this book and read it in a leisure afternoon. This is a very twisted re-telling of the Medusa/Perseus myth, narrated from the view point of Hades. Gods and heroes in this book appear to have completely different qualities and characters than we know of, while the ancient world seems too commercial/Americanized.

The book is quite humorous and easy to read and while some points irked me, this is a teen book after all and I'm sure its market segment would find it very good. I enjoyed it and I'm sure others will, but I hope that its readers, especially teenagers, will feel intrigued to learn the proper version of the story and delve deeper into Greek Mythology.

Medusa got itchy feet, so it was about time I let her go to explore the whole wild wide world : )))

This book is now traveling to the other side of the globe, been part of a surpise parcel. I hope you like it...

Thank you for joining my second Bookiversary's celebration draw and Happy BookCrossing!

Looks like a fun book. Might read it with my 10-year old who likes myths and humour. Perfect combination.

Thanks Delphi_Reader!

Finished the book today.

Fun, light-hearted, twisted tale about Medusa as told by Hades and geared towards teens.

Totally different to what I know about this story so i hope that anyone reading this knows that it’s not the real version.
