The first book of this series that I had the pleasure to read. And it was awesome.

It’s such a fun ride. I love how the author uses Hades to narrate the tale of Odysseus. It’s clever, irreverent, funny and entertaining. Children and youths will adore this snappy tale, and adults will get a kick out of this retelling of Homer’s very dry account of the Odyssey.

I studied Classical Mythology in school, and am quite familiar with the stories. I wish I had come across this series then. It would have made the material a whole lot more entertaining.
