This book was pretty goodSome parts were exciting while others were kind of boring I thought the idea was pretty interesting since I love Greek mythology and I'm fascinated with the legend of Helen and TroyIt was cool to see this author's view on Helen's childhood though it wasn't written that well There were only a few things that bothered me The author italicizes words way too often about ten times every page and so that was uite frustrating Also the author had a tendency to go off on a rant about things that weren't that important or significant to the plot Lastly the author left out a few things that were supposed to have happened to Helen when she was at a certain age For example she was never kidnapped by Theseus at age ten but rather passed that year with nothing like that happening which made me feel exasperated Other than that it was pretty good It left off at a cliffhanger and I'll probably read the seuel

She is beautiful she is a princess and Aphrodite is her favorite goddess but something in Helen of Sparta just itches for out of life Not one to count on the gods or her looks to take care of her Helen sets out to get what she wants with steely determination a. The description says you'll find yourself rooting for Helen I beg to disagree I felt just the opposite Helen is a spoiled stubborn selfish impulsive immature bratty child She is inconform with everything She gets her way with everything She is smarter slyer and altogether better than everyone else at everything by the ripe old age of fourteen she is actually much younger throughout the first half of the book yet that doesn't impair her knowledge or skills at all The other characters serve as foils or teachers for Helen Okay Obviously Ms Friesner wanted to make Helen a strong female character which is all nice and well but most if not all of it is much too unbelievable In fact it seems Ms Friesner wanted to glamorize every female—excluding Clytemnestra Helen's twin sister in the book and biggest foil Helen is perfect; Helen is unhuman Root for her Nay I wanted to bash her on the head

Review Nobody's Princess

Nobody's PrincessNd a sassy attitude That same attitude makes Helen a few enemies such as the self proclaimed son of Zeus Theseus but it also intrigues charms and amuses those who become her friends from the famed huntress Atalanta to the young priestess who is the Oracle of De. eh crappy ya novels seriously what is up with that ya novels tend to be better than just slapping random words together right there is a most definite lack of direction in this and the characters lack depth but fine again ya novel is it possible to stop introducing such immature characters and trying to make them pass for mature just a thought that doesn't sound unreasonable rightanother point is of course that nothing really happens throughout the course of this book and the text is GINORMOUS if this was a word doc in traditional times new roman size 12 font this would barely hit 100 pages no plot no character REALLY just a half baked premise is this what you intend to feed your young adult readers the main character annoyed the hell out of me she tried to make her sound like she wasn't being a complete selfish ass by going off and doing whatever the hell she wants but fails miserably because in the end her character helen goes anyway and to hell with the people who care about her this is all on the whim of a childish need for adventure which makes perfect sense of coursetoo many things to complain about it would be stupid to rant about a book i don't even much like i'll end the post shortly but first i need to get something straight too why did the boar hunt last like 2 seconds it was also never fully explained why 2 girls were able to defeat the boar when 30 or 40 so grown men couldn't and died doing it fine so they're good but inhuman they are not and too much of the mythology tried to pass as dialogue with one character telling it to another used WAY too much it is simply not a storytelling device any it was turning my brain into mush i seriously CANNOT stand it a second longer maybe i'm just not wired to think like a young adult any
