Friesner – 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 Unlike her Hers go on heroic adventures and be free to do what she wants and find out who she isNot 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 and an attitude And while it's the attitude that makes Helen a few enemies such as the self proclaimed son of Poseidon Theseus it's what also intrigues charms and 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

Esther M. Friesner Ñ Nobody's Princess Kindle

Amuses those who become her friends from the famed huntress Atalanta to the young priestess who is the Oracle of DelphiIn Nobody's Princess author Esther Friesner deftly weaves together history and myth as she takes a new look at the girl who will become Helen of Troy The resulting story offers up humor action and a fresh and engaging heroine you cannot help but root f A fascinating look at not just the childhood of Helen of Troy but of the era in which she lived The historical notes at the back of the book talk about how Helen would have lived not in Greece's Golden Age when Homer was writing the Iliad but centuries before in the Bronze Age It put a whole new spin on the story reading and writing were nonexistent as was money and the women of Sparta really would have been huntresses in their own right Very intriguing My only complaint is that there were a few too many training montages if you will when Helen was learning some new skill

Nobody's PrincessShe is beautiful she is a princess and Aphrodite is her favorite goddess but something in Helen of Sparta just itches for out of life Unlike her prissy sister Clytemnestra she takes no pleasure in weaving and embroidery And despite what her mother says she's not even close to being interested in getting married Instead she wants to do combat training with her older brot 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
