rec'd in the mail. Thank you! Look forward to this read. :)
am reading this now and I like it so far. I'm a bit lost though, I haven't heard of this legend before, which I think is a good thing. I have no expectations for it. :) The main char has a sarcastic slant which I enjoy.
Just finished reading this book today. I enjoyed the story of Theseus, which I was not familiar with until this book. The main character grew on me during the course of the tale. I found him charming and compelling. Funny in a way also. The first person narrative does a lot to flesh out his character. Interesting to see the king emerge from the boy and in the way of Greek myths the Gods and their mystery are never far away. I want to read the other books by her now too! Thank you for the read!! :) I'll be looking for a new BC home for Theseus! Carrie
Finally! I found this book on a wishlist on Cliff's site. :D Sending this as a RABK to DreamSE22. I hope you enjoy it! I did. Happy reading.
Wow! I can't tell you how much this made my day. :) Its been a while since I received a true RABCK! Thanks so much CarrieLS!
I had this book on my wish list because it was featured on my Book Lover's 2006 tear-a-page-a-day calender. The description sounded so intriguing, and I have actually been keeping my eyes out for it since I listed it on my wish list, so thank you! :) What a pleasant surprise.
Unfortunately, I couldn't really get into this book. Its not that it was necessarily bad, but I'm a bit weary of Greek mythology for the time being, especially after recently watching the movies Troy and Alexander! I have a few other books by Mary Renault covering related material, and I haven't been able to generate any interest from those either, so I'll be passing those along too.
Oh well, thanks for sharing! I'll continue to pass this one along. :)

I'm struggling with this book. It feels like something I would like to read, but I feel like I'm running uphill. Its exhausting. :) I shall find a new home for it.
