Review this Book

Gods Galore


The Olympian Gods have made it to the 21st century AD. We may not have heard much about them in the last two thousand years, but they’re still controlling what we humans are up to – or at least they think they are.

The reality is that the Gods are like us – they’ve got problems!

Zeus is still Top God on Mount Olympus, but he’s got issues with many of the younger gods. His brothers, Hades and Poseidon, have issues with themselves – they’re getting too set in their ways ruling the Underworld and the Seas; they probably need a job change. 

But help is at hand from an unexpected source – we humans.

It’s surprising what a dose of good common sense can do for even the most powerful of the gods, especially when it comes from a couple of teenagers!

I gotta say, I'm shocked I enjoyed this as much as I did! I am a big fan of Greek Mythology retellings and this one was lighthearted and there were times I actually laughed out loud. What would happen if we were to modernize the realms of the big three? Well, you'll find out and you'll probably chuckle a lot too. I also appreciated how the author made Homer a librarian in the underworld. He does this for many of the characters in the stories which will make you chuckle.

This was a very light-hearted and fun read. It's not a super deep book, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. It's original, unique, and quirky. It made me smile and was well worth reading. I'd read a sequel in a heartbeat.

Rupert Stanbury

Rupert was born in Manchester and lived in the North-West of England long enough to become a lifetime Manchester United supporter.

In his teens he moved with his parents to Central London where he has lived for much of his adult life. After reading Economics at Cambridge University he had a business career encompassing finance, property and marketing.

His interests include regular visits to the gym, travelling, the theatre, socializing and reading. As well as Manchester United, his other lifelong interest has been books, having been given a full set of Dickens's works at the tender age of twelve. In fact, it was a recent re-read of some of these classics, together with Homer's and Virgil's great epics, which inspired him to try his hand at becoming a writer himself. Gods Galore is his first novel.
