Dreaming About Other Worlds reviews Food for the Gods by Karen Dudley

Dreaming About Other Worlds, a blog by Aaron Pound, offers a thorough and insightful review of Food for the Gods by Karen Dudley: "By combining the tawdry reality of Athens, where purging the taint of a murder within one's house would be done by first feeding and then beating a homeless bystander until they fled the city limits, with the mythical version of Greek religion, in which a collection of winged demons would show up and randomly wreck havoc upon the populace of the city in retaliation for a murder while the gods stood by and neither knew nor cared to know who the actual guilty party was, Dudley manages to paint a picture of how very different the world was much more vividly than she could have if she had drawn upon only one or the other." The reviewer concludes that "Food for the Gods is, quite simply, an excellent book in every possible way." Read the full review hereRead the full review here.
