Hers and then he turned and walked away Love can be deadly Especially when two girls fall for the same man one a ueen the other her serving girl Elissa knows she is playing with fire but she can't. This is the story of ueen Dido and nursemaid Elissa and their love for Trojan prince Aeneas Dido and Aeneas are married but Aeneas is leaving to fulfill his destiny and Dido is distraught Elissa has fallen in love with the ueen s husband she knows it is wrong but she just can t help herself The events of the book take place over one fateful night but we learn of events over the previous 2 years in the form of flashbacks from various characters Dido and Elissa s tale is full of secrets jealousy and lies can if have anything other than a tragic endingDido is a re telling of a classic Greek myth I have to confess that I don t know much about Greek mythology so I don t know the original story can t compare this book to it However I can say how much I enjoyed reading Dido and what a fantastic job Adel Geras has done bringing these characters to life The story is told by 4 different narrators nursemaid Elissa Dido s sister Anna Poet Iopas and kitchen boy Cubby Sometimes I find having multiple narrators can make for a confusing read but Adele Geras has done such a great job of giving each of them individual voices that I found it easy switching between them The way the story is told through flashbacks by the different narrators really added to the story allowing the reader to see events from different perspectives and discover the character s feelings and motivesI love the way various Greek Gods Goddesses are brought to life and make appearances throughout the book meddling in the lives of the various characters Although I have to say that the minute one appears to me I ll be running in the opposite direction as fast as I possibly can because even when they mean well they have a knack of causing harm than good I thoroughly enjoyed the story and am looking forward to reading Adele s other books based on Greek mythology Troy and Ithakas

While she was still trembling with the complete unexpectedness of what Aeneas had just said and done he leaned forward a little and kissed her on the mouth Just one swift soft touch of his lips on. meh started off with real potential but uickly devolved into two women who should know better woe is me ing over some dude they love but for different reasons can t have and other characters woe is me ing over not being able to have their One True Love because said One True Love is in love with someone else I don t mind a bit of romance but this omg if i can t have him I will dieeeeee crap is too much
