Dion: His Life and Mine
Dion: His story and my review
I immensely enjoyed reading Dion: His Life and Mine, this is a truly unique book. The narrator of the story is Ariadne, the main character, looking back on her life. I love this view point as the foreshadowing comments just keep you turning the pages. The characters are all so relatable and you, if not love (as some are just plain mean), then understand all of them. The hyperlinks to newspapers really aid the storyline giving readers helpful background information, often foreshadowing a character's entrance or involvement in the story. This particular aspect I've never seen in any book and really enjoyed. The plot, well I can't tell you about the plot without giving the story away, just be warned this is a beautifully written romantic but tragic tale with a hell of a plot twist at the end.
In summary, it's a beautiful modern take on a Greek myth and I recommend that you read it.
I loved reading Dion: His Life and Mine. It's Greek Mythology with a modern twist and I loved reading about the characters, Ariadne and Dion in particular. The narration was strong and the story telling really spoke to me as a reader. There's also hyperlinks to help interact with the story. As a young adult (16) I enjoyed this new YA novel. I can't wait to read more of the author's work!
