    eBook appomattox campaign.co ☆ Penelopes Daughter PDF/EPUB » Penelopes Daughter penelopes pdf, daughter download, Penelopes Daughter pdf, Penelopes Daughter eBookMeh I yield It's not a terrible book but I don't care about the characters the narrator's voice is bland the style is too episodic for my taste The writing is pretty smooth too smooth perhaps? grammatically it's okay so there's that much Some of the descriptions are nice there are a few pretty turns of phrase But overall nope I'm not connecting with itSince I'm not very familiar with The Odyssey I can't comment on how well it ties to the original epic But this much I'm sure of Penelope sparked my interest than her fictional daughter We see nothing of Penelope other than what Xanthe mentions in her narration but she has a dramatic personality her situation is intriguing IMO I'd rather the author had focused on her instead

    eBook appomattox campaign.co ☆ Penelopes Daughter PDF/EPUB » Penelopes Daughter penelopes pdf, daughter download, Penelopes Daughter pdf, Penelopes Daughter eBookI really wanted to like 'Penelope's Daughter by Laurel Corona I am a passionate reader of historical fiction But the book fell flat for me I love Homer's Odyssey I read it in World Literature in college I love the rich poetic images so much and also the vision of Penelope's devotionThe author did a tremendous amount of research as evidenced by the afterword and bibliography I did enjoy reading about the important festivals in Greece such as the grape festival but I was so stuck on Homer's portrayal of Penelope that I did not feel comfortable about the different direction that the author took Penelope’s storyI liked that there was an excellent glossary in the back of the

    eBook appomattox campaign.co ☆ Penelopes Daughter PDF/EPUB » Penelopes Daughter penelopes pdf, daughter download, Penelopes Daughter pdf, Penelopes Daughter eBook I admit I was the tiniest bit expecting that this book would be awful because how dare someone add such a blatant sub plot to such an amazingly epic story Penelope's Daughter is an excellent book turns out Xanthe the heroine is so integrated to the main storyline of Odyssey that by the end I was wondering why could Homer have missed adding such a plotline Besides the obvious Penelope's Daughter explores the way women lived and even delves further to their everyday activities and faith I'm not an archaiologist so I am not sure over the overall accuracy of descriptions of that being honest to the time period but it made a fascinating and truthfull reading as in I don't believe this can be fictionalI enjoyed it thoroughtly
