Gods Behaving Badly: A Novel

Gods Behaving Badly: A Novel - Marie Phillips I liked this one a lot. Funny, completely bunkers, yet endearing. Yes, it's a retelling of Orpheus and Eurydice, yes, the end is simplistic and the reader can figure it out a mile away, how the gods didn't, well, Athena did but poor thing, she can't communicate to save her life. I love Greek Mythology. This was a very easy sell for me. Gods are still alive (barely) and living in London, in this very gross house and try to get by and keep the world together. It's a light tale of true love, family feud and how even gods need a little love.
