OK, Today is a quick blog jot. I was up until 11:00PM trying to finish Goddess of
Spring by P. C. Cast. I did NOT want to put it down until I finished it. (that's
a bad habit of mine, drives my hubby nuts). I really liked her version of Hades
and in fact ALL of the Underworld. I don't believe anyone has ever delved
into what it would look like and what should it look like to make it into an underground or in this case, underworld paradise. It almost had me seeing the Hanging Gardens of Babylon ( gee, I hope I got that right) . They were supposed to be lush and incredible. Its like
has not been seen again. But Hades sure knows how to plan a garden. Since I
like gardening so much, I can relate. I guess the only thing I was unclear on is the
ending. She leads a full mortal life, dies, and goes to join Hades. She is named Queen of the Underworld. I thought a goddess had to have that role. A observation was made by Lina that her new spirit body was different than the norm she was used to seeing in other new spirits. Is that because she was "touched by a goddess" and that little "touch" allowed her to become and be accepted as Queen of the Underworld? Or was the love of Hades responsible? No Matter, I loved the story!
Anyway, that constitutes my Favorite Thing for today.
