Had to read it for a class, it was one of the better stories I had to read
When I bought this audiobook I was expecting a story translated into old fashioned and heavy English, dense with complicated imagery and challenging to the ear. How wrong I was! This translation by Emily Wilson is a joy to listen to and sounds so modern considering the age of the original poem. I‘m not especially a Greek mythology lover but I really enjoyed the adventure and scale of this story. A very pleasant surprise! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Today is a hard day. My grandpa passed away a year ago. He was a great reader, and this is one of my favorite pictures of him. Just wanted to share it today in honor of him. I love and miss you, Papou ❤
An Ancient Greek play that is a strong contender for one of the funniest, raunchiest things I‘ve ever read.
To end an endless war, the women of Athens and Sparta band together in the decision to refuse sex until the war is ended.
Thank you for the chance to read this, @SerialReader . I loved it!

✨I might have a small obsession with Greek mythology, but uhhh... this is Hera. 😍 I decided that Athena, Nyx, and Perseus needed a little sister. She enjoys sleeping, whining, chewing on bookmarks, and the occasional book sleeve when the urge arises.
