Aphrodite: Goddess of Love (Olympians)
This book is about Aphrodite, the very beautiful goddess of love. To stop the gods from fighting over her, Zeus married her off to Hephaistos, but Aphrodite didn’t love him. She went off and had other husbands in this book, and she had a son she named Eros. Eros shot one of his arrows into the heart of Zeus and made him fall in love with a mermaid, Thetis. Her children would be twice as strong as their father, so Zeus marries her off to someone else quickly before he can marry her so her children won’t defeat him. At the marriage party, Eris threw her apple of discord at the three goddesses Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite, and Paris, a mortal, is chosen to give the apple to the fairest one. He chooses Aphrodite and Aphrodite makes him fall in love with the most beautiful mortal woman in the world.
Aphrodite was really rude in this book and really didn’t deserve to be a goddess. I thought it was really funny how they told the story, and how it was only about what happened to Aphrodite. I also thought it was cool how this was comics, in a graphic novel. Even though I didn’t like Aphrodite, I liked the book and want to read the other ones in the series!
