Mehso-so

The story of Odysseus's homecoming, told alternatively from Odysseus's and Penelope's point of view.

For much of this book I felt it was just a re-telling of the second half of the Odyssey which stuck too close to the original. It was only after Odysseus (disguised as the beggar) and Penelope met and the two tricksters start manoeuvring round each other that I really thought we were getting anything new.

I'm waiting for a friend of mine to have lunch together, while I'm waiting I read outside.
Actually I do not read outside as much as I would like to 😔😅

Loved it! 💜 Penelope gets her revenge and Odysseus gets to remain true to his exaggeratory & vainglorious nature. I won‘t spoil it by revealing how! Ingenious though.

A testament to the rich imagination and humanity of Homeric lit that the stories live on thru retellings that never feel stale.

Well... the book is not a masterpiece by now, I hope it will get better soon but I'm not pretty confident about 😅
I just find ironic reading it while I'm working in the hotel 🤣

What a cute series ❣😍
I read all the four books in 3 days and I liked a lot each of them.
The first one (tagged book) it's the longest and also my favourite, but all the novels are very well written and the characters are just perfect 😍❣

I started this new series... well... It's not actually a good one.
The plot is always the same...
Anyway, it gaves me company during the last boring working evenings...
I'm reading the 4th book of the series, but I'm not sure I'll read the last one... we'll see it!
