This was the second of two books in this series that my niece borrowed from the library when she visited I didn t like this one as much as the Medusa book this one had a lot of the same annoying gimmicky feel with the made up words and the oh brother relationship between Hades, Zeus and Po, but the plot didn t do enough to make up for it The main storyline in this book is Zeus giving Pandora the box and betting that she ll open it, and when she doesn t he does everything he can think of over the course of many years to trick her into opening it The tricks are kind of lame, and there is no climactic ending because it s just so predictable when it does happen I did like the parts with Prometheus though, and how they dealt with his punishment and tricked Zeus but not enough to up the stars on the rest of the book. The Story About Pandora Opening A Box And Releasing Terrible Evils Into The World Totally Made Up Pandora Couldn T Have Cared Less About What Was In That Box The One Who Was Really Dying To Know Was Zeus Zeus Gave Pandora A Box All Right A Box Full Of Really Nasty Items But Disease Pain Greed No Way Hades, King Of The Underworld, Reveals The True Story Behind The Pandora Myth Keep A Lid On It, Pandora Is the sixth of the series Myth O Mania by Kate McMullan It is about how hard Zeus has tracked Pandora to open an evil box that will unleash the most evil things on the Earth So Hades tried to protect Pandora from Zeus track.Actually Pandora did not open the box by herself, she was trying to help the old man And that old man was the sneaky Zeus The story starts when Prometheus first made the Guy, the old mortal they need food, warmth So Prometheus stole the fire from the place where the god lives to give Guy fire That makes Zeus very angry, he thought the fire is for immortal only, so he asked his son to make a woman, after his son made Pandora Zeus gave a box as a gift to her and said don t open it When Pandora arrived Earth Zeus immediately tried to track her to open the box, but Pandora has a clear mind, she didn t fall on the track of Zeus Then Hades taught her to never try to open that box, he said he has a bad feeling about the box Every year Zeus tried to track Pandora to open that box and every time she refuse to open the box Can Pandora keep refusing Zeus from opening that box Well, you have to read it yourself.This book has used a new style in all the Myth O Mania series The main character showed up on chapter 8, but I was expect Pandora shows up straight away. This is the sixth book in the Myth O Mania series by Kate McMullan These books are fun to read and have a youthful and humorous perspective that makes it simple for people to remember the various characters and their stories We are balancing these fun tales off with classic fare, like The Wanderings of Odysseus The Story of the Odyssey by Rosemary Sutcliff, so our girls can hear the original tales, too This book offers a humorous take on the story of Pandora we really enjoyed the wit and wry sarcasm The tale was rendered with enough fidelity to recognize the story, but it was still a very different version It s an entertaining and quick read. This book is about the story of pandora but its from hadies s point of view It is about how promithius makes people and gives them fire, then zuse makes pandora and gives her the box to punish the people Zuse disgiuses him self to try to get her to open the box though I can make a text to world connection to this book In this book Zuse dressed up like many things This reminds me of spys They are always going under cover and everything It also could be a text to text connection to a movie I would reccomend this book to people of all ages The way the book is writen is very good iT keeps you interested you wont be able to put the book down I would give this book 4 1 2 stars. I read this at school during silent reading times with the kids since they seem to love this series I really didn t like it much, though I almost quit reading it since the beginning assumes the reader knows quite a bit of mythology, which I don t But I kept going and it definitely got better There s a lot of weak humor, but because I don t know much mythology, I think I missed some of the jokes, and wasn t sure what was accurate and what wasn t It just wasn t my cup of tea. This is a fun read The main events in the original myth remained, but the way it happened was much lighter, that it could be read and be enjoyed by children And I like Hades, here I mean, I always love Hades, ever since I began studying the Greek Myth, but I like his personality here Not too dark, and not to jolly either Anyways, I like it, and I m hoping to stumble to another book from this series D Page Count 192Book 6Recommended to Fans of Greek mythology ages 11 14The best part of this story, for me, was the creation of humans The guys were so spot on, my husband could have been a character.I love that Pandora didn t REALLY open the box herself She was tricked Finally, the woman isn t blamed for all the evil in the world. you think you know the story of pandora and the magical box well you got it all wrong Pandora was created and given the curiosity by Zues And then he give a box that was not suppose to open He then betted on hades that she will open it and he tricks her into open it This is what hades the ruler of the under world say really happen. Another highly enjoyable installment in the Myth o Maniac series, this time retelling the myth of Pandora There were some great sections here, esp with the guys and their stereotypical behavior.
