Stone Blind: A Novel | Natalie Haynes

This wasn‘t exactly what I expected it to be; I was expecting it to be more focussed on Medusa‘s POV. Instead it takes in the whole story of how and why Medusa turned from beautiful woman to decapitated gorgon, wholly as a result of others‘ petty squabbles. I can‘t quite equate Haynes‘ petulant Athene with a goddess of Intelligence and Wisdom, but it does provide a theory as to why Athene chose to punish the victim, not the perpetrator.

TheEllieMo It‘s an easy read - I enjoy Haynes‘ writing style - and for someone like me, who didn‘t have the opportunity to study the Greek myths, it‘s a great retelling of this story. 2w

#BookReport for last week - Finished Pandora‘s Jar, and I‘m c60% through Stone Blind, both by Natalie Haynes.

#WeeklyForecast I‘ll finish Stone Blind either today or tomorrow, and start on A Terrible Kindness; the latter is my book club‘s choice for a next meeting in early December, it‘s centred around the Aberfan disaster of 1966.

A cute adaptation of Greek mythology! I enjoyed the less than subtle mythology antics that the main character had no idea about throughout. It was a little weird that even though she didn't connect any dots on all of this mythology, she immediately has a guess on what the monster is. Overall, a fun middle grade graphic novel. #GreekMythology #Adaptation #Comics

Came to hotel bar to have a pot of tea and read a bit. It is very difficult here to get tea that is well brewed. They put always too much tea leafs in and this time it was so undrinkable that I had to ask more water to put in to make it drinkable even though I just let it brew for like a minute. It was still too strong. 😅🍵

They fear us, so they call us monsters.
