Summary: Being a Greek god is not all it once was. Yes, the twelve gods of Olympus are alive and well in the twenty-first century, but they are crammed together in a London townhouse-and none too happy about it. And they’ve had to get day jobs: Artemis as a dog-walker, Apollo as a TV psychic, Aphrodite as a phone sex operator, Dionysus as a DJ.
Soon, what begins as a minor squabble between Aphrodite and Apollo escalates into an epic battle of wills. Two perplexed humans, Alice and Neil, who are caught in the crossfire, must fear not only for their own lives, but for the survival of humankind. Nothing less than a true act of heroism is needed-but can these two decidedly ordinary people replicate the feats of the mythical heroes and save the world? — Back Bay Books
What a unique premise for a book. I can honestly say I’ve never read anything even remotely like THAT before. It sounds a little bizarro to me- definitely different! Thanks to Valerie Russo from Hachette Book Group USA, I have up to five copies of GODS BEHAVING BADLY by Marie Phillips to give away here at Books on the Brain. Not sure if you’re interested? I was sold on it by watching the author talking about her book on this youtube video.. check it out:
