What a shame!

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I had very high expectations of this book after reading this book and sadly this book did not live upto my expectations even though the book had a unique concept.Here's a list of pros and cons of the book:


1.the concept

Greek mythology is interpreted in a unique way .This is what made me finish this book.


hades is shown to be understanding and not mean or ruthless which is refreshing.


1.Kate's relationships

This is a major drawback of the book.

How can a person you just met a day before be your best friend? Kate considered james her friend for no reason. He just comforted her when she was sad.She barely knows him but considers him her best friend!

and ....

How can you fight for a person without knowing them?Kate's relationship with Henry was unreal and unbeleivable.She was fighting for his life because she cared for him.Why did she care for him? He gave her a few minutes with her dying mother but why try so hard to save his life?Furthurmore,you dont just fall in love with someone so quickly and easily.Their relationship progressed too quickly.

The whole book is based on her relationship with Henry and sadly this is what brought the book down because you don't feel for the main characters.Their relationship just seems fake and unreal.

This concept had a lot of potential but unfortunately it wasn't implemented well.
