    I'm not going to lie when I first heard we were doing a book about Aphrodite I was like 'this book is going to be all filled with love and stuff isn't it?'WellAphrodite being the goddess of love there is some love in this book But than love this book is really about power about a goddess who's a woman figuring out her relationship to a pantheon of gods and what she can do with that situation if she uses love for good or for ill It's a really interesting discussion of familial and societal power dynamics and one that's applicable to us today tooAlso The Trojan War starts So there's some of that too

    I love this series George is doing a fantastic rendering of these myths and there is usually at least a piece of the story I did not know or heard about Comics are a great setting for these storiesI feel the art is kinetic and jumps off the page I love that each character is so carefully rendered in each one and has their on uniue personality This book tells the tale of the golden apple which lead to the trojan war It tells of Aphrodite's birth and beginning And it also tells the tale of Galatea and her maker I don't feel there was as much in here and they are so good he can fill these books up I really enjoy them

    For a book about Aphrodite this turned out remarkably kid friendly and yet didn't feel overly censored or changed Although I definitely was amused at the tries to artfully get around exactly what Kronos cut off of Ouranos that created Aphrodite The seat of Eros' power view spoilerIt's his dick If you didn't know hide spoiler

    Note I received a free copy of this from the Goodreads FirstReads Giveaway O’Connor hits it out of the park again in his latest in his Olympians series Here he examines the myth of Aphrodite – and it isn’t at all what you’d expect This isn’t a story about love – it’s a story about power and than that it’s about powerful beings making power plays Zeus the womanizer sizes up Aphrodite as she steps out of the ocean and is smart enough to realize her ability to make people fall in love is a heck of a lot stronger than his lightening bolts His power play to adopt her and then marry her off reminds the audience that he is a politician as well as a warrior and womanizer Many of Aphrodite’s adventures that follow are as much about power and politics as they are about people falling in loveIt feels like a thoroughly modern take on the Greek gods but in the author notes at the back O’Connor goes to great pains to underline the fact that all of his source material was the ancient texts There was a part where the goddess Discord was acting like a brat where I was sure he was going to admit he was inspired by a niece or nephew acting up at a family event – but instead he shows where that came straight from an ancient Greek text It is also remarkably G rated – there a few panels with strategically placed waves or clouds or hair but nothing overtly sexual than what you’d see in a cartoon character in the Sunday comics Aphrodite may be the goddess of love but she is also a woman of action We see her doing things rather than passively waiting for things to happen to herAll in all an EXCELLENT retelling of the myth of Aphrodite

    I love Greek mythology but have to say that when knowing the next book was actually about the Goddess of Love I wasn't as excited as with the previous books in this series However O'Connor went in a great direction with his retelling of Aphrodite's story He starts back at the beginning with Kaos and Gaea and re tells the whole story of creation and the Olympians as was done in the first book Zeus though this time very uickly and from the point of view of Eros from which Athena is formed After a few tales of Athena's interfering in occasions of love with her always present sidekick Eros better known by his Roman name Cupid O'Connor chooses to focus on the Judgement of Paris and the Golden Apple This opens up a whole future of tensions and the set up for the epic War of Troy O'Connor has added some modern sensibilities to his female characters and modern thoughts on the theme of love which some readers may appreciate but this reader didn't bringing my rating down to a four Otherwise George's art is as divine as usual and I look forward to the next book but am at a loss to find it not advertised at the back of this one Who will be featured next?

    425 I have been a fan of mythology ever since I read the Iliad as a child This graphic novel was kindly given to me for my classroom library by a friend Aphrodite may not have been my first choice in the Greek Pantheon to read about but it was really enjoyable It gave a lot of great info the art was solid and it tied together numerous story lines I am definitely planning on reading the others in the series

    this was so good I cant wait to read the next one with my partner I loved this graphic novel and I don't really like graphic novels so this was a very nice surprise plus the artwork was awesome and really helped tell the story

    Amusing The origin of Aphrodite was pretty good since I wasn't too familiar with it before Always loved the statue maker's story In his notes O'Connor admits the golden apple story makes the goddesses look bad but that's how it goes

    The interesting thing about this series is that even when it's not my favorite adaptation or interpretation of that particular myth I'll read the author's note at the end of the book and gain a wholly new appreciation for the story and effort that went into researching the character Such was the case with this volume it wasn't my favorite in the series and I felt like it spent way too much time with other gods and myths than Aphrodite herself If I recall correctly I had a similar problem with the book on Athena But the author's note has made me realize that I'd much rather be reading about his journey through his research and the care he took in choosing which versions and writings to adapt and how to present them

    The comic book Aphrodite goddess of love was written by George O’Connor The story opens with Gaea the Earth and Eros love living together and creating the world It also introduces the olympian gods along with Zeus their king One day Eros gave the form of a body and a beautiful maiden arose from the sea named Aphrodite She was headed to Cyprus the nearest island she could find The goddess of love met the three Charities who were loyal to her The Olympians caught sight of Aphrodite and were bewildered by her beauty She slightly seduces Poseidon and Hera went mad telling her that she is Zeus’ ueen Athena introduced herself to Aphrodite and the gods tried to flirt with her Finally Zeus welcomed Aphrodite as his daughter and married her to Hephaestus a craftsman and the son of Zeus Hephaestus treated Aphrodite as his bride and was kindhearted to her providing her jewels and crafts When Hephaestus was not with Aphrodite she went into many adventures and went jumping from man to man Aphrodite as the goddess of love played different roles in the love life of mortals For example Pygmalion had built a statue to which he had fallen in love with but she was not living He prayed to Aphrodite to make the statue alive and she listened to him She was named Galatea and they got married Aphrodite had a son whom the father was mysterious and named him Eros Eros had shot Zeus with the arrow of love and he met Thetis but he didn’t know it was her He seduced her for a moment but he suddenly remembered that any child of Thetis will be twice as great as their father Therefore Zeus married Thetis to a mortal named Peleus During the wedding Eris the goddess of discord was supposedly not invited Shortly after Zeus let her in but only if she was in her best behavior which she wasn’t Suddenly about to create a conflict she threw a golden apple and said whoever gets it is the prettiest Aphrodite Athena and Hera all reach to the apple but each goddess claims she is the prettiest and an argue debuted Hera calls Zeus and tells him to decide but as the king of the gods it doesn’t fit his position to decide who among the three goddesses is the prettiest He then calls his son and messenger Hermes to get Paris a mortal to be the judge During the competition Hera offered Paris political power Athena power in war and Aphrodite the most beautiful woman in the world Paris chose Aphrodite but she suspiciously threw the apple away Aphrodite offers Paris love for Helen wife of king Menelaus of Sparta and most beautiful woman among the mortals in order for him to fight for herThroughout the mythological story about the goddess of love Aphrodite the reader learns three important facts about the beautiful maiden The first fact is the coming to existence of Aphrodite Eros the power of love gave the form of a body and a beautiful maiden arose from the sea named Aphrodite She was headed to Cyprus the nearest island she could find The second detail is the story of Pygmalion and his statue Galatea who later became a living human and Pygmalion’s bride Pygmalion had built a statue to which he had fallen in love with but she was not living He prayed to Aphrodite to make the statue alive and she listened to him She was named Galatea and they got married In this myth Aphrodite’s position was the divine goddess of love and helping the mortals finding love The final detail the reader learned from this book is the golden apple competition in which Aphrodite Athena and Hera participated They told Zeus to be the judge but he picked Paris to be that role During the competition Hera offered Paris political power Athena power in war and Aphrodite the most beautiful woman in the world In conclusion Paris chose AphroditeThis book is recommended to middle school high school college students and adults This story is placed in the section of Greek mythology which is not for a specific job but for everyone in order to learn what people thought back then and then compare the similarities and differences between the Greek myths and their religions The reader’s favorite part of the story was when Eros gave the form of a body and a beautiful maiden arose from the sea named Aphrodite This gives further information about how the goddess of love was created and it was peaceful The reader’s least favorite part was when Zeus welcomed Aphrodite as his daughter and married her to Hephaestus a craftsman and the son of Zeus This was the least enjoyable for the audience because Aphrodite and Hephaestus were married without wanting each other but by force As opposed the this situation being completely unenjoyable it also shows how noble Hephaestus can be to his wife and that they weren’t sad after all
