Convince us to read the book: After I first heard about the book I knew I had to read it. I am pretty interested in the Greek gods after reading a number of other fictional books about them. The characters where nicely developed though I felt that Athena needed to show her wisdom more. The reason for this comment would be that it felt like Demeter used more wisdom. There were a number of surprises throughout the book which made me latch onto finishing the book. The dialogue was pretty realistic and seemed as if some of the characters were people I might run into.
Memorable or Forgettable: A memorable quality would be bringing back the characters the gods and godesses might have worked with. Another thing would be the suspense kept me reading it without breaks. A great thing that was memorable was making the gods and godesses seem like mortals.
Cover: The cover didn't really tempt me to read the book though it was a great reflection of the book.
