    Hardcover ☆ Perseus ePUB Ø perseus pdf, Perseus PDFThe 8YO and I read this in chapters at bedtime He liked Perseus WAY better than Theseus Both as a book and as a person At times the writing is a bit overwrought and hard for a young child to follow but nothing a little editing on the fly while reading aloud can't fix and to be fair the book is probably intended for a slightly older reader anyway Would recommend

    Hardcover ☆ Perseus ePUB Ø perseus pdf, Perseus PDFFirst I should point out that this is not a novelization of the classic myth of Perseus but rather a retelling We do not really get into the thoughts of anyone but instead follow the story of Perseus as he slays Medusa takes down Atlas fights various kings saves a princess and kills a sea monster not necessarily in that order This book really helped to flesh out my knowledge of Perseus – all I knew came from a video game that I had played where he was one of the heroes you reuested to slay Medusa As this is a retelling of a myth I’m not going to critiue the character or plot development At 160 pages the paperback version I think that this is a pretty sufficient retelling – you don’t feel like you are losing out on anythingThere is one thing that irritated me throughout the story – all of the pantheon of gods were referred to by their G

    Hardcover ☆ Perseus ePUB Ø perseus pdf, Perseus PDFPerseus has always been my favourite Greek hero This is a fairly simple retelling of the Perseus myth but it is well told and has some very vivid descriptions I will admit thought that I was annoyed when Hades was consistently referred to as Pluto despite the fact that everyone else was known by their Greek names except HerculesHeracles in passing But that's a uibble and the book is still worth reading for kids or teens with an interest in mythology

    Hardcover ☆ Perseus ePUB Ø perseus pdf, Perseus PDFMcCaughrean's prose is uite lovely and the tone has a light tongue in cheek sense that's appealing never laugh out loud funny In particular this is the first time an author has gotten me to physically imagine what it would feel like to fly wearing Hermes' winged sandals But all in all this retelling of the myth is pretty straightforward and the coda about smashing prophecy and allowing humans to make their own fate was kind of too little too late to give it some gravitas
