2.75-3 stars? Added to my list of "books I really liked until the end."

Men suck and women pay the price - not really much else to gain from the story.

Narrated by Atalanta herself, this is a pacey and vivid account of her upbringing, initially by bears, her development into a fine hunter and warrior.

Greek Myths Retold for a Modern Audience

This was an enjoyable read. It is a retelling of several myths,including Theseus and the Minotaur, the Maenads, and the fate of Ariadne. The author makes many references to other myths as well as other mythological characters. It could be distracting if you, like I, am not familiar some of the references. It sparked my interest. I looked up the references and it did enhance my reading experience.
