    PDF Snakehead PDF Á ☆ ant web.co ☆ snakehead download, Snakehead EpubSnakehead was like a breath of fresh air for my summer reading The author retells the story of Perseus best known for chopping off Medusa's head and Andromeda best known for being chained to a giant rock as a sacrifice to a sea godmonster The book starts with teenage Perseus living a uiet life on a small Greek island just waiting for the chance to prove himself and rid his home of its unjust king Andromeda is fleeing her role as sacrifice and arrives on the island of Serifos in disguise as Kore which of course doesn't last for long as her past catches up with her Both of them are swept up in the machinations of the Greek gods and leave the safety of Perseus' home for a fantastic perilous adventure I really liked the blend of epic and everyday and the way that the mythical comes to life as believable and relatable Beautiful descriptions a great sense of humor and plenty of romance

    PDF Snakehead PDF Á ☆ ant web.co ☆ snakehead download, Snakehead EpubI am a big fan of historical fiction and retellings of mythslegends Unlike the popular Percy Jackson books which takes place in modern times this story takes place in ancient Greece although the author intentionally sticks in some anachronisms which seem out of place The author uses both first person for Perseus and third person for everyone else's point of view which makes it sometimes confusing The first 23 of the book moved at a leisurely pace and it was great to be in the ancient world The last 13 was much faster and I was sometimes not sure how the characters were getting from one place to another it was a little too mysterious and confusing

    PDF Snakehead PDF Á ☆ ant web.co ☆ snakehead download, Snakehead EpubI tried to read the book Several days in a row I think I had problems because it was an advance reader I got from a teacher friend but the opening two chapters were too tough to get into The relationships between characters seemed wrong a few uotation marks in those chapters were missing and overall I was confused I'm all for retellings but I'll pass on this one

    PDF Snakehead PDF Á ☆ ant web.co ☆ snakehead download, Snakehead EpubWe've heard the story of Perseus and Medusa but we've never heard it from Perseus's point of view before Here you'll meet a cast of characters both familiar and new including Andromeda Cassiopeia Dictys Jason and his crew and many many others It's an interesting enough retelling told with a bit humor than most Yet it still somehow seems to drag and I found myself struggling to keep interest in the story even though I love Greek mythology and the concept of re envisioning classic tales This one just didn't work as well for me as others have even though I can find no real problems with the writing characters or plot In fact I still can't uite put my finger on what made this book less than memorable for me Alas these things happen
