Book Description

22 Oct 2011
Seralina didn't mean to become a goddess. Especially not the unimpressive sounding 'Goddess of Puddings'. But that's what happens when you go around ignoring perfectly clear warning labels. In between working as a part-time valkyrie in the goddess Freya's new Ginza bar, Seralina and her cat-dragon-bird thing familiar Phin travel around the Afterlives, encountering gods, spirits and talking trees - sometimes not even as a result of being really bad at flying. The gods are rather disturbingly like humans; some are kind and helpful, some are petty and jealous and some are more than happy to use a hapless do-gooder for their own ends... Eggs, Butter, Sugar and Disaster by Alicia L Wright is a humorous take on mythology and the afterlife featuring strong female characters. --FantasyBookReview.co.uk I laughed my way through the entire beginning. There are some truly classic lines, very reminiscent of Terry Pratchett. ... A hugely fun adventure in the Afterlife. --www.kerrynangell.com

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun read 25 July 2012
By MmcK
Format:Kindle Edition
So, I've resently read Alicia L. Wright's book Eggs, Butter, Sugar and Disaster and was asked to write a review.
So here goes ...

... I quite liked it! Or rather it didn't make me want to throw it at the wall in frustration. Considering it's a book in a genre I'm not the biggest fan of and a young adult fiction, it must mean it's pretty good.

I won't give away too much about the story. It's about a young woman named Seralina
who accidentally drinks a can of ambrosia and becomes a goddess/valkyrie in the norse pantheon. We follow her through her struggles to cope with her new situation and duties.
She gets a taste of life as a valkyrie and the road to becoming a true godess. Through her experiences and conversations with the colourful cast of side characters she puts forward many meaningful thoughts and musings on life and religion and what it means to have power and most importantly, she pushes the philosophy of being good to others and that if you are good, good things will happen to you.The overall message of the book is very positive and teaches that you should not look down on others, no matter how much power you have.

(the following paragraphs are full of nitpickery and minor spoilers)

The side characters, although being well written, loveable and having sturdy, separated personalities, seem to suffer from an a bit too convenient naivity. Even though the
message in the book is that if you are good to people, people are good to you, some characters seem to take that concept a little far. Her boss in the afterlife, Freya, gives and forgives and protects without protest quite often. The dwarves she hires to build her home does so asking nothing more than the publicity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully humorous book! 9 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An amusing romp through Norse mythology, suitable both for children and young adults alike. The humour is both fresh and original letting it stand out among more drier fantasy pieces and while the story appears slightly rushed at points it holds together very well.

A highly recommended read, especially as a spring board to anyone interested in learning about mythology.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars 18 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ok, I wanted to give this 4.5 / 5.0, but Amazon only let you do 4 or 5.

The blurb does hint at what you get, but not at the lightness of touch and detailed background research that have gone into this. I don't think I'd be stretching the point too far to say that the book reminds me of Tom Holt's early work (and yes that is a compliment). My biggest reservation is that the pacing is slightly uneven and the "wow finish" could maybe have stood another 10 pages.
