The Dig (Zoe and Zeus Trilogy #1)
First, let me give you my schpeal on historical fantasy and time travel novels - yes, this is fantasy. ...more
Amo totalmente libros sobre dioses, no soy experta en ellos,es mas solo se lo que representan(algunos) pero es que tienen unas batallas de lo mas interesantes!
Obviamente tenia otra imagen de los Dioses; Sherrilyn hizo de Artemisa una diosa perra, guaperrima pero super mala; aquí es mala & hippie..loco pero le queda Jajaja.
Ares lo acabo de leer, bueno por el que tomo el nombre pero que odioso ¬¬'
Apolo es un ...more
- Zeus is adorable. I never ever thought that I would ever say/type/think that but there it is. He's a hottie with a sensitive side that makes me want to ship him and Zoe until I can't possibly fangirl anymore!
- Zoe is so strong, internally. She's a great heroine and I admire her selflessness and wonderful modern way of thinking!
- The jokes were hilarious
- Every story I read about the Greek Gods, Hera is always the nasty *itch. Always. And this book is no different!
I can't ...more
My son once asked me why I love to read. He sat there, perched on the edge on my bed, (me sprawled out with my Kindle,) and just laid it on me. “Tell me mom…tell me the truth.” So I did. “I like to read because it takes me away from here. First of all…not the best response when you are talking to a 5 year old. I meant…”I get to visit cool and exciting places from the comfort of my own bed.” He heard…”Mommy doesn’t want to be here…with him.” Not a fun thing to back peddle from, I ...more
I adore the cover. It's cute and represents the story. The little wings on the feet is CUTE!! I love how the way the title and the picture is set on the cover!
4 Forget-me-not flowers for the cover!
Indiana Jones meets Percy Jackson with a sweet romance! When Zoe first arrived in Ancient Greece, the book progressed quite slowly, with Zoe meeting some new characters and trying to adapt with her new situation. I almost didn't enjoy it since I really wanted Zeus to appear and re ...more
After wandering into a forbidden temple while on a trip with her archaeologist uncle and aunt, Zoe is transported to ancient Greece. Really ancient Greece-1000 BC or so. To find her way back, she must travel to the oracle (isn't there a ...more
Boeken met mythologie erin verwerkt kan ik gewoon niet laten staan. De wereld van de goden, godinnen en al die andere mythische wezens is gewoon te interessant om te laten liggen. Ik was dan ook heel enthousiast geworden na het lezen van het uittreksel van The Dig. Zeus als een tiener? OMG! Bring it on! Stel je al die mogelijkheden eens voor!
Helaas verdween dat enthousiasme al gauw als sneeuw voor de zon. Dit verhaal bleek namelijk niet voor mi...more
So let me start off by saying I am a huge Mythology buff. It's to the point where i wonder myself why i haven't sat down to write my own spin on the infamous Greek Gods...I remember picking up one book of Percy Jackson and the Olympians...finishing it and the second one...but by the time i reached the third book i couldn't take it anymore...It lost me. Why? No idea...it was probably the only book/movie that tried to stick to the century old stories...yet it failed somehow during the en ...more
Typically, I don't give an overview of the story in my review. That's what a synopsis is for, right? But in this ...more
You’ve seen Disney’s Hercules.
You’ve read Percy Jackson and The Olympians.
You’ve marveled at the special effects of Clash of the Titan‘s remake.
Greek mythology is not new. You must have heard the gods mentioned at some point; Athena’s intelligence, Hera’s jealous wrath, Zeus’s power.
Zeus. What with his scraggly beard, eternal state of irritability and fatal lightning bolts, he is definitely the world’s oldest bad boy.
But take away the age, the sourne ...more
My own speedy summary…
Zoe...young...just a tad different from an average high school student...does not really fit in…not at school, not with her “friends”, pretty much not anywhere. She is studious and quiet and prefers to sort of watch life as opposed to being a real participant. Zoe doesn’t get a lot of things…why she has a cowlick in her curly hair, why relationships are so hard, why everyone else has more cosmetics than she does. She spends most of the year away at school and spends summers ...more
Dig ignores everything of Greek Mythology. The author horribly bashed Greek Myth in ...more
Every year Zoe always goes across seas to visit with her aunt and uncle, Sophia and Alex. Not only does she go to visit, she goes to dig. She loves to find artifacts hidden away from years ago. All the other kids find this weird. All the kids at school seem t ...more
The good: the heroine actually has to work at getting her powers working, is tested and it's not the kind of tests like in the awful The goddess Test. She's likable, she's smart. The plot moves fast. The action scenes are good. The premise is great. I love time travel, mythology and seeing how someone from our times would fare in the past. And Zeus- it's hard to write a romance with Zeus, so I was curious.
The not so good: some language struck me as too modern. While the ancient folks in the b ...more
I like,Looking like seventeen year old but five hundred year old Zeus - Blondie -.
I've always image The Zeus Like a Black hair but here He's Blonde.But ı like this either.
Everybody talks about falling in love like it‘s
the greatest thing in the world. All the songs,
all the movies, all the books—the ...more
Me propongo leer de principio a fin libros considerados "malos". Mi intención es encontrar al menos UNA cualidad buena en ellos y reseñarlos objetivamente siguiendo 20 puntos a desarrollar brevemente. (Los puntos varían según el género del que se trate.)
Si tienen ganas de No-recomendarme otros libros
pueden comentar acá o ACÁ. ¡Cualquier género es bienvenido! Cuanto más variado, mejor :)
Zoe is a cross between Percy Jackson and Lara Croft. She's not the usual teen-ager who uses Facebook and tweets her daily routine. Instead of going to summer camps and having summer flings, she spends her vacation in the ruins of Greece digging artifacts with her aunt and uncle.
What I love about the plot?
* An interesting love triangle
* A twist in the gods & goddesses - Hart has an amazing perspective about Greek Mythology
* Iphone & Petros has something in c ...more
i usually devour any book on Greek mythology but this one was just too weird for me.
i didn't manage to connect with the characters, the story was confusing and as a general rules if i was not requested to review a book and I still don't care 1/4 in I have to stop.
I expected a lot and felt let down :(

First off, if you hate spoilers of any kind, you may not want to read this book's Prologue. Don't get me wrong, I liked how it introduced the narrator's (Zoe's) voice, and I thought the action was a great hook to get me reading. But I will admit that it gave away a good portion of the book's plot, erasing the tension in much of Part 2. So I guess if you're unsu ...more
