While not as compelling as Madeline Miller in the retelling of Greek mythology, Saint’s debut is worth the read. As an elementary school librarian, I often read mythology to the kids. Among the favorites that got kids into reading for themselves, was the story of Theseus and the Minotaur. The female perspective filling in gaps was enjoyable. This is the first time I have really thought about how in mythology the women suffered for mistakes made by men, but its just not as magical as Miller’s retelling.
