This book was not for me. I felt like I was missing backstory of the myths referenced and I spent more of the book confused than understanding. It also was extremely graphic, with almost unstopping references to excrement and violence. Overall, I personally didn't enjoy it but I do think it does have some wonderful descriptors at times, and I liked the mythical stories told throughout.
