Gods Behaving Badly

Last night I read Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips. I have been struggling with a cold and was happy to immerse myself in this fantasy. It was an easy, interesting read. The gods and goddesses of Olympus live in London, with their home falling to pieces around them. They seem to be (gasp!) losing their powers. The major mythological characters all come into play in this story. The book makes a good introduction for those who are not familiar with mythology. This tale isn't a new myth, but more of a revisiting of old mythology with a twist. Overall, I enjoyed it. Pick up this book when you are looking for a brief break from real life with an amusing story.
