The Song of Orpheus has a fun way of connecting a number of lesser known Greek myths together through the story of Orpheus, who has to tell a lot of stories before the sun sets.
For those readers that are rather unfamiliar with Greek mythology, but would like to read some of the lesser known stories, this is a wonderful book. For those, who like myself, took some classes into Classic Greek — well, let’s just say that Orpheus would still be a stone… Most of the stories though I hadn’t heard before, although there were some where it was not hard to discover why they aren’t better known nowadays.
Lovely, quick read. Would recommend.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
