I'm only about 100 pages into the book; however, I can't continue without at least asking if Helen's foolishness with Claire continues? I can't stand that Helen is going through an incredibly painful emotional time and Claire is worried about whether she slept with Lucas! Can someone please reassure me that Helen finally stands up for herself (without turning into someone insufferable) with everyone?!

The author has put herself in the shoes of the adolescent mind. If you were a teenie bopper who had a friend acting all nuts all of a sudden and it was correlated with a new hottie in school, you'd probably think some drama was going on between the two of then as well. You have to remember that the story is written in third person narrative, which means that you have all the answers, but the characters don't.(less)
I'm quite confused. I read this book when I was around 12/13 but I don't remember that much from it, the only thing thing I remember is that I was madly in love with this book back then... the point is that reading the reviews I saw that so many people hate it! So what should I think, is this the young-girl-just-into-reading-around-the-supposed-to-be-twilight-phase type of book that I wouldn't like now that I'm older?

The plot of the book develops around two star crossed lovers, as the name suggests. The two characters love each other but a curse related to Greek mythology prevents them from being together. Their relationship is further complicated when they are fed lies which also forces them apart. These two characters try to stay close, and fight their feelings for each other because of the curse and the lies they were told. In the second book, a love triangle develops. This book is not necessarily a romance novel as their are other aspects to the storyline, but the romance between the two main characters is a main element. (less)

I am confused! 1) Does lucas only love helen because of the necklace? then why dont others love her too? What is the deal with the necklace? Why is necklace suddenly a problem 4 Noel when she knew helen and lucas had feelings for each other? 2) Does lucas know that he's supposed to be paris and helen is supposed to be helen of troy as soon as he saw her? So knew they were meant to fall in love with each other?
I am also trying to slog my way through this book and only because I hope Helen stops being such a helpless, pathetic person. So far the book is like reading choppy bits without character substance (other than Helen's lack of any). I am determined to finish to see how this became more than one book. Does Helen's character grow or should I stop now?
