Sort of a prequel/sequel to Bull God with bits from her earlier Greek Myth books. This wasn't as delightful as the others, though, there was something I didn't quite like about it somehow. Too episodic perhaps, the surroundings and cast of extras kept changing. Though I don't mind that sometimes... Maybe just the romance with a dog factor? The way she told him flat out she loved him and would marry none but him, and he apparently didn't notice?I think there was something about how magery and Gifts worked in this book that bothered me, inconsistent with the others. The caves of the dead? Too many magics?And yet I enjoyed reading it. I think I analyse too much, that reading and writing reviewsmakes me look for flaws. I guess it's possible to take one's role as a reader too seriously. Or role as a reviewer? Just reiterations of "I enjoyed" wouldn't be interesting enough to keep on with. And books that really give me something to say, that change a view or perception, books I fall in love with, are too rare. Maybe they seemed less rare before because they were the ones I remembered. Writing about books can have a sort of flattening effect on experience. I mean, like the myth of Theuth, when Solon told him that writing was an aid to recollection only, and no friend to memory.I wonder if that would make sense to anyone? Best I can do. ( )
