A word of warning: Never ever read this book while drinking or snacking. You’d choke on your drinks or food. Why? The book is too funny that I’m sure you’d find it hard to resist the urge to laugh.
The mythologist will be going around tsk-ing at the twist, though. ‘Say Cheese, Medusa’ is not exactly the story where Perseus chopped off Medusa’s head and emerge a hero. It’s quite the other way around. A very refreshing and humourous touch to the age old serious story of heroism.
I definitely can get used to reading the books in Myth o Maniac series. It tickles my funny bones and I enjoyed it very much.
I received an ARC of this book from Capstone via Netgalley. I was not compensated in any ways for writing this review.
In Greek mythology, Medusa was a Gorgon — a winged monster with snakes for hair. Anyone who looked at her was instantly turned to stone. But she wasn’t born that way. Not even close. Athena was so jealous of Medusa’s beauty that she cursed her. Zeus changed the story to make his son, Perseus, look good. Hades is here to set the record straight on Perseus, Medusa, and everything in between. A part of the Myth-o-Mania series.
