After sharing the Percy Jackson series with my son who is totally enthralled with Greek and Roman mythology,we find this book a refreshing retake on the modernist writing styles of today. Nathaniel Hawthorne, doing what he did best, sets the book into the not so distance America past setting from which a young Williams College student puts his own touches on the great Greek mythololical stories, loved and treasure for centuries, while entertaining a group of children. I would encourage any student who wishes to truly appreciate a broader use of the English language to pick up this book and relish the richness of the text.Was this review helpful?
