    Hardcover ✓ Nobody's Princess Kindle Á nobody's mobile, princess epub, Nobody's Princess PDFEPUBI have to say this book did not work for me at all It's a retelling of the story of Helen of ancient Greece Somehow the modern voice applied to her narration just made the story feel totally shallow Like oh my heck it's the Oracle of Apollo Okay it wasn't that bad but the modern language took away the credibility of the story for me Another problem was that the character's voice didn't change to adjust for her age at all She spoke the same way at 6 at 10 and at 14 Again hard to suspend the disbelief Usually I really love books for young

    Hardcover ✓ Nobody's Princess Kindle Á nobody's mobile, princess epub, Nobody's Princess PDFEPUBThe 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 p

    Hardcover ✓ Nobody's Princess Kindle Á nobody's mobile, princess epub, Nobody's Princess PDFEPUBDo you like heroines who are strong independent and self sufficient? You may want to meet Helen She's not your average princess Sure her mother and father are king and queen of Sparta And sure she may grow up to be Helen of Troy But Helen is a young firecracker of a character She is not going to stand around learning how to do needlework while her two brothers Castor and Polydeuces get to have all the fun of learning to ride and hunt She's not going to miss out on all the fun of learning how to use spears and swords Disguising herself as a boy she fools everyone but her brothers and their teacher Glaucus Fortunately for Helen he bought into her theory of how the future queen of the country needs to be able to defend herself Now being an adventurer and hunter like her brothers isn't all fun and games Helen is learning it takes hard work sacrifice and a strong mind Some may call her pretty But Helen pays them no attention She wants one thing in life freedom to li

    Hardcover ✓ Nobody's Princess Kindle Á nobody's mobile, princess epub, Nobody's Princess PDFEPUBI don't know what's wrong with me I want to like the books I read and yet I'm constantly disappointed Then I read the reviews and other people did like them So I think the problem is me I can definitely see recommending this book to fans of re told Greek myths especially ones featuring strong heroines But here's what I wanted If it's supposed to be historical fiction I wanted to know about what it would have been like to be Helen of Sparta before she became Helen of Troy if she were a spunky feminist who wanted to learn how to use a sword and travel the world How realistic would this have truly been? If it's supposed to be myths brought to life then I wanted it to stick to the original stories without adding Helen to stories she wasn't a part of Also I'd prefer a concentration on one main story so there's a building of tension a climax etc instead of a rambling account of several different unrelated events Man I am picky and d

    Hardcover ✓ Nobody's Princess Kindle Á nobody's mobile, princess epub, Nobody's Princess PDFEPUBThis book was pretty goodSome parts were exciting while others were kind of boring I thought the idea was pretty interesting since I love Greek mythology and I'm fascinated with the legend of Helen and TroyIt was cool to see this author's view on Helen's childhood though it wasn't written that well There were only a few things that bothered me The author italicizes words way too often about ten times every page and so that was quite frustrating Also the author had a tendency to go off on a rant about things that weren't that important or significant to the plot Lastly the author left out a few things that were supposed to have happene

    Hardcover ✓ Nobody's Princess Kindle Á nobody's mobile, princess epub, Nobody's Princess PDFEPUBA 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

    Hardcover ✓ Nobody's Princess Kindle Á nobody's mobile, princess epub, Nobody's Princess PDFEPUBAn historical novel about Helen of Sparta before she grew up and became Helen of Troy? Sounded compelling to me Especially because Sparta is such a fascinating complex and often problematic cultureUnfortunately I got the impression from this book that it was written as a generic Western princess fairytale the publisher thought it was too bland and encouraged the author to put a Grecian gloss over the thing It's still generic and bland and at no point does it feel like it takes place in SpartaHelen is a spoiled brat who reads like a modern pre teen She spends most of the book whiningHelen's big thing is that she wants to train with her brothers doing physical exercise instead of sitting in the house spinning and weaving with her mother and sisters Later she meets an oh so unusual horsewoman and has to sneak around to learn to ride secretlyHere's in thing in Sparta spinn

    Hardcover ✓ Nobody's Princess Kindle Á nobody's mobile, princess epub, Nobody's Princess PDFEPUBI loved it so much to tell a story like that was so cool and I found myself devouring the book in a couple of daysThe fact that I love greece and sparta to begin with was a plus to this book I was rapidly immerse on all the mythology and names and citiesI can't wait enough for the second book to see how this all will end or start and I thinks this series is one I would grow to loveOne of the things I really liked was that Helen was no damsel in distress she is a strong female that wants everything the world can give and The way she fights for what she wants and believes is right is inspiring so I hope every girl embrace her as a role model and fight back for what they wantMore reviews wwwbookwormiespotco
