Being immortal isn't all it's cracked up to be. Life's hard for a Greek god in the 21st century: nobody believes in you any more, even your own family doesn't respect you, and you're stuck in a delapidated hovel in north London with too many siblings and not enough hot water. But for Artemis (goddess of hunting, professional dog walker), Aphrodite (goddess of beauty, telephone sex operator) and Apollo (god of the sun, TV psychic) there's no way out...Until a meek cleaner and her would-be boyfriend come into their lives, and turn the world literally upside down. "Gods Behaving Badly" is that rare thing, a charming, funny, utterly original first novel that satisfies the head and the heart.

I like stories where mythological characters are put in modern day. This book didn't disappoint. It's funny & original. A good read.

I really loved the idea of this book and enjoyed the beginning. I felt it flagged a little towards the middle, ut I love the last 80 pages or so!
Greek Gods living in modern day London get mixed up with a couple of star-crossed lovers, which results in the end of the world, perhaps!
I'll be keeping an eye out for the authors next offering.

Pming the next participant now. Thanks for sharing xxx

To be read - looking forward to it.

Mind you, having been to Greece, I can testify that their ancient Gods (and Goddesses) are still there.

Journal Entry 7 by meddyg on Wednesday, August 20, 2008
Very good read indeed - I thoroughly enjoyed it, a skilled mix of wit and humour.

A bunch of the Olympian Gods and Goddesses living in a dilapidated house in London and Alice, the cleaner they take on, with some unexpected consequences.

Will pass onto tehuti.

Some very funny one-liners from the diverse deities. This was a quick and enjoyable read.
