The Greek gods are living in a London townhouse, their conditions in squalor, their powers declining. The goddess of hunting is now a professional dog walker; the goddess of love and beauty a phone sex operator; the sun god who spoke through the oracle at Delphi is now a TV psychic…you get the picture. There seems to be no way out until two mortals come into their lives who must replicate the feats of mythical heroes to save themselves, the gods, and the world. Clever, witty, imaginative, and laugh-out-loud funny.

  1. I did like this The comedy, but I felt the author didn’t know where to go after the midpoint and the second half got all tangled. Still, a great modern twist of mythology.
