1/30: Done reading PERCY JACKSON’S GREEK HEROES. This is a great light-read storybook for young adults like me. It contains 12 chapters hilariously narrated by Percy Jackson himself. 5 STARS!
Each chapter tells a different story with high-quality colored illustrations, let’s say, there are three in one chapter. The stories of Psyche (Chapter 2, page 37) and Hercules (Chapter 11, page 259) are my favorite.
Aphrodite as her mother-in-law, Psyche does everything she can to win back Eros – even if it means traveling to the Underworld to get a box of beauty cream. Beautiful inside and out, her story makes me realize why Psyche became the goddess of the human soul. She genuinely understands human suffering like no one else.
Hercules, on the other hand, is a big name in mythology. He is this muscular, tan and adventurous man who never quit. Yet, to my surprise, his life is a tragedy. He suffers from anger management issues. He even massacred his family before completing the 12 impossible tasks ordered by King Eurystheus.
All in all, this storybook is worth for keeps. I’m planning to re-read it but I’m not sure when.
