“Down the wormhole it is.”

This was a bit of a strange story, and I had a bit of a hard time working out what was going on.

I had a hard time keeping up with the characters in this book, because there seemed to be quite a few of them, and they all seemed to have two names; their ‘god’ name like Aphrodite, and then their everyday name like Anna.

The storyline in this really confused me. There was something going on in one world, and then we switched to something that was supposed to be set in our world, but then we had all these Greek? Gods turning up? I didn’t quite understand how something could be set in our world, but then feature a girl with snakes for hair and eyes that turned people to stone. I hoped that the story would become clearer as it went along, but it just didn’t, and I felt confused most of the way through.

There was a bit of romance, and questions over an unplanned pregnancy.

The ending to this as just as confusing as the rest of the book. I feel like I might understand this a bit more if I read it a second time, but I really can’t read it a second time right away.

  1. I have trouble keeping up when there are lots of characters especially if they are all thrown in at one time.
