This book was an absolute riot from start to finish I'm a grown woman and even I found myself laughing at some of the clever jokes told through fictional social media posts and emojis in this book While it's not likely to win any literary awards it is after all written in chat speak it is a perfect overview of Greek myths told in a way that most middle and high school students will understand very well As a bonus for us not so savvy adults there's a helpful glossary in the back explaining what shorthand like ICYMI means In Case You Missed It for those who are curious For the teens this book is aimed at there is also a helpful list of all of the characters featured in the book sometimes with hilarious subtitles such as Niobe not important Though I'm sure middle school students freuently use language like FML and LMAO I would feel comfortable putting this in the hands of a high school student rather than an 11 or 12 year old In my humble opinion books like this are a fun creative and engaging way to teach teens about famous mythology and literature This is certainly helpful than shoving centuries old texts at high school students and asking them to find meaning; it puts old literature into terms they can relate to and also find hilarious while getting them to talk to one another about classic stories As an added bonus this is also an insanely fast read; I'm pretty sure I had it finished in under half an hour I might be a particularly fast reader but I can easily see a high school student finishing this book in one sitting so it could easily appeal to reluctant readersThough I'm sure the ancient Greeks would be appalled to see their mythology treated in such a way mythology is one of those subjects that just happens to be both strange and wacky on its own Athena springs from Zeus's head in full armor Kronos literally eats his children and King Midas is granted power that lets him turn objects into solid gold Let's face it; mythology is already pretty funny and crazy so writing it in the form of instant messages and emojis just makes sense somehow The book focuses only on the most well known myths but gives a uick and easy overview of some of the most important characters in Greek mythology It might not be as in depth as a textbook on Greek mythology but it makes for an entertaining uick reference guideWhile this book would be most appropriate on the shelf of a high school Classics teacher I could also see it being a big hit on library shelves Considering the popularity of books like the Internet Girls series TTYL; TTFN; L8R G8R; and YOLO a book written in this uniue style would be a hit with reluctant readers especially those who struggle to understand classic literature and Greek mythology While I can't bring myself to give it high marks for literary merit though funny the grammar is obviously appalling it than makes up for this with humor creative story telling and excellent characterization of the pantheon of Greek gods This is one book in a series of books on different classics A Midsummer Night's Dream Romeo and Juliet Hamlet Pride and Prejudice etc and I think it's a fantastic way to engage teens with works they might be reading in school I remember uite vividly latching onto the insult I bite my thumb at you after reading Romeo and Juliet in high school; it's something teens do in order to relate what they're reading to the modern day Courtney Carbone is in my opinion a genius for thinking this up and I'd like to purchase her entire collection of humorous takes on literary classics for my own library's collection If you're a fan of Greek mythology and need a good laugh this book is definitely for you

Ot And the selfie obsessed heroes out for all the likes If you have trouble telling Perseus from Theseus #Greek2Me or have ever wondered about Oedipus's tragic dating profile or why Medusa's Instagram never got traction this satirical book of Greek myths retold for the Internet age is for you tl;dr D'Aulaires' and Homer. Not my favorite of this series of books A lot of it fell pretty flat for me and I'm not sure how they picked the collection of myths that they came up with I just felt like this could have been so much better

Greek Gods #suadgoalsOMG Classics the greatest stories ever told in texts Imagine What if Mount Olympus got WiFi and the gods and goddesses had smartphones The classic Greek myths get new life in irreverent and hilarious texts and posts Zeus a king of the gods always in search of a new bae A suad of goddesses who can't resist stirring the p. Not the best offering in this series I think if the author had done longer versions of fewer myths it would have been better I don't think this is one that makes sense if you don't already know those stories Also in the section about the War of the Titans the book keeps saying that Zeus etc are the siblings of the Titans when not only is this not true it directly conflicts with the previous section about Kronos and is really confusing just within a couple of pages
