Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips

Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips
Number of Pages: 292
ISBN: 0-316-06762-8
Back of Book Description: (inside flap)

Being immortal is not all it once was. Yes, the twelve Greek gods of Olympus are alive and well in the twenty-first century, but they are crammed together in a London town house--and are none too happy about it. even more disturbing, their powers are waning.

For Artemis (goddess of hunting, professional dog walker), Aphrodite (goddess of beauty, telephone sex operator), and Apollo (god of the sun, TV psychic), there's no way out--until a meek cleaner, Alice and her would-be boyfriend, Neil, turn their world literally upside down. When what begins as a minor squabble between Aphrodite and Apollo escalates into an epic battle of wills, Alice and Neil are caught in the cross fire, and they must fear not only for their own lives, but for the survival of humankind. Nothing less than a true act of heroism is needed--but can these two decidedly ordinary people replicate the feats of the mythical heroes to save the world?

My Rating: A+
his is one of the sweetest love stories I've read recently. I feel in love with the love that Alice and Neil have for each other, if that makes sense. The gods, as selfish and wily as always cause so much havoc, sometimes without even realizing it. Each character becomes one that you instantly want to know more about, and wish that there was more time spent on them.

A quick and easy, but ultimately heartwarming read, I will be looking for more of Miss Phillips work!!
