    Interesting, but has an evident lack of substance

    The good point of the book, in my opinion was its use of the myth. Myths change through time and society, and it was refreshing to see several different Greek myths altered from their expected tellings.

    I felt that the book was entirely too simple, though. When I can read 200 pages in one day, there is an evident lack of substance. It also seemed entirely too "happy" for my taste. The dead are cheerful, everyone lives (or dies) happily ever after... too sweet for my taste. And, Hades is kindhearted? It just seems too different from the impression one has of the underworld (any mythological underworld, in fact). I had issues with Tartarus' depiction as well (then again, I also got a kick out of Dante's vision of Hell and who was there). Overall, it just didn't seem well thought through; it's hard to fully explain. The best way to describe it is that it lacked intelligence.

    The love interest was not interesting. It didn't help that the author kept constantly referring to Batman. I was sick of reading about Hades looking like Batman. I don't think I can watch another of the movies without seeing her words float by in my mind.

    Although I like to read fluffy books to help me unwind, this one did not make par by a long shot, I am sorry to say. I may pick up a later book in the series, but I will have to read parts of it first to see if the style has improved.
