    After the first two or three chapters of this book I felt like I should have read the other books mentioned by the author instead of this one; I have read Life's DaughterDeath's Bride and I felt like I got out of that book than I did this one A couple of the other books mentioned I had considered getting before deciding on this one and the author definitely made me feel those others books would be much better resources than this oneAnother issue that I have with this book is that I felt like she was saying that all women are victims no matter what I also did not like how it felt like she was degrading the culture of Ancient Greece; she was definitely making twenty first century judgments on that culture One cannot expect people who lived over two thousand years ago to see things the same way someone living today doesAnd while I think she does make some valid points in the chapter where she talks about rape I don't think she gave the reader the full picture From the reading I have done on the story of Persephone I ran into an interesting explanation of the word rape; one translation of the word is derived from a Latin word rapt which means to seize By failing to take this meaning into account I think the author has done her readers some disservice
