Only knocked off that half-a-star because the valley-speak *occasionally* gets annoying. Otherwise, a concise retelling of Goddesses who get what they want when they want it! Brava!

I don't suggest using this book as a reference for a research paper. Unless, of course, your paper is on something like retellings of myths. The stories are actual myths from many cultures, but they are told with major attitude. I really enjoyed all the stories in the book, but my favorite was the retelling of Ishtar's descent into the underworld.

Robbins respins old myths about female, but not all feminine, goddesses. She even relates it to a younger generation and inspired me to write a short play about some of these goddesses. The myths make you feel like a bad#$$ warrior queen that can take on the world.

I'm researching mythology right now for my schoolwork, and I find this to be a very useful and entertaining book. I love all the tales and the manner they are told in, I just can't pick a favorite!
