Book 1: The Goddess Test review

*****

I guess I’ll start by saying… I liked Goddess Interrupted in spite of its many flaws. It does not bore like so many middle books, but i’ll admit that the characters are annoying enough to classify it as such. i love Kate, but gosh, she really is a whiner sometimes. And Henry is so infuriating! I have never met (or read, for that matter) a god with so many emotional baggage like he has.

After living above for six months, Kate cannot wait to go in Eden Manor and be with Henry. To her dismay, Henry was not happy to see her. Why is that? Henry is one emo boy, that’s why. Ugh. I thought Henry’s character would’ve have develop into a confident, less-than-sallow male lead by now. Sadly, he is still this indifferent, insecure god who cannot believe that someone such as Kate can love him. What. A. Loser. All throughout the book, I saw Kate reassuring Henry of her love, Kate doubting Henry’s affection for her, and Kate doing little to prove she is worthy to be a goddess.

Like I said, I still liked the book. Perhaps my connection with Kate is too real, too emotional to ignore. You see, i hate rejection. And Kate’s constant mulling over Henry’s rejection of her is something I felt so strongly about. Also, Calliope is one scheming, manipulative goddess that I can’t help but cheer on.

Persephone is intolerable. Ava‘s character is disappointing. You’d think that as Aphrodite, she’d be as vain, scheming and manipulative like Calliope. But Ava is nothing but a pretty decor beside Kate.

If you liked The Goddess Test, there’s a likely possibility that Goddess Interrupted will appeal to you, too.

  1. I really like Goddess Test so when I saw this on Netgalley, I immediately requested for it. But I don’t know. After reading so many reviews about this, I might just skip this. I hate emo boys and I don’t really need an extra emotional baggage. But let’s see. Great honest review! :D
