Customer Review

on 19 February 2014
The Girl from Ithaca is an enchanting read based on Homer's epic ,
'The Odyssey'. Our main character, Neomene, 14 year old sister of
Odysseus, tells the story through innocent eyes yet this tale is far
from childlike! This makes her relatable and really draws us into
the plot. Cherry Gregory has created the story with just the right
amount of detail so that those who know little about Greek myths and
Trojan legends can enjoy it as much as those who do! She seems to
effortlessly take us back 3000 years to an era where war was the best
way to prove the love for Helen! We follow Neomene through the
hardships of being a young woman in this period and her different
relationships with her family and those around her. This really is a
captivating story right through 'til the end and I can't wait to read
the next instalment and for the movies to follow!
