Publisher's Summary

Being immortal isn't all it's cracked up to be. Life's hard for a Greek god in the 21st century: Nobody believes in you any more, even your own family doesn't respect you, and you're stuck in a dilapidated hovel in North London with too many siblings and not enough hot water.But for Artemis (goddess of hunting, professional dog walker), Aphrodite (goddess of beauty, telephone sex operator) and Apollo (god of the sun, TV psychic) there's no way out....Until a meek cleaner and her would-be boyfriend come into their lives and turn the world literally upside down.

What the Critics Say

"Witty and entertaining, Gods Behaving Badly is an auspicious debut that outrageously libels the classical pantheon." (Financial Times)

Gods behaving Sadly

I am only part way through this book, but felt that it was enough to write a review.



From the short summary of the book it sounded great, witty, cheeky and bad. I felt the book could have been better. The narrator gives the Gods a sarcastic, superior, smug voice you would expect from any God. The book is in need of this and it is not a criticism. The love story is passable but the book on the whole leaves you flat.

Perhaps I will change my mind. Watch this space.

Great Book :)

I havn't actually listened to the audio version of this so i cannot comment on that aspect.
I have however read the book and i loved it! I thought it was brilliantly written and hilariously funny with a very witty storyline! It has got alot of sexual references so if your easily offended by that sort of thing then it probably isn't for you but overall a great read - or listen :D
