About this deal

The writing is so excellent as well I can’t help compare how valuable it is among Miller and Atwood’s retellings. Now, she has begun a new series entitled The Songs of Penelope, beginning with Ithacawhich was released earlier this year. Hera sees everything and everyone, Hera knows everything and describes everyone, it's an all-seeing eye that plunges you into the story from an advantageous position of observer that won't miss anything. It goes on for a few pages and it is really cool to see some development of Hera where she is anything other than angry at mortals.

The plot expands to cover various maids that serve Penelope, though we perhaps don’t get to know any of them quite as much as we’d like (Priene is a standout for sure). Summer 2009, and eleven-year-old Jason Lowry is preoccupied with thoughts of the Da he has never known. However, there was a lot of more modern language thrown in and, while this generally added a humorous tone to an otherwise dark and depressing tale, it did throw me the first few times.The pen name of British author Catherine Webb, Claire North is best known for her genre-defying novels that merge science fiction with contemporary themes, including The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August, The End of the Day and 84K. These characters are given depth; they are entertainingly and deeply flawed, ultimately grappling with their own place in a patriarchal society . Because while this is Penelope's story first and foremost, we do not actually hear from her first-hand. No one wants a Queen running a country, no one believes she truly can, and now they believe Odysseus to be dead, suitors have come in droves to try and gain Penelope’s hand and, through it, the rule of Ithaca.

The voices and world are distinctly the Greek myths we all know and yet there is so much more depth.Seventeen years ago, king Odysseus sailed to war with Troy, taking with him every man of fighting age from the island of Ithaca.
