Gods Behaving Badly

Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Philips is about the Olympians now inhabiting contemporary London. Their powers are waning and they are bored to tears cramped together in a dilapidated house. A stupid fight between Apollo (who is hilariously arrogant) and Aphrodite (spoiled slut) inadvertently ensnares a mild-mannered mortal couples into their lives.

It's cute and readable. Actually a little sad and empty. The description of the underworld was my favorite part.

But, ultimately, it's rather forgettable. (Definitely Kindle fare; not something I need on my shelf to impress people...)
