The Tragedy of Medusa by H Roberts is a fascinating retelling of the Medusa myth. Readers relive the moments just before Medusa’s birth and how she came to be raised by mere mortals. Sadly, the girl who wasn’t monster enough to be accepted by her real mother ended up with a foster father who couldn’t care less. After a tragic event, Medusa needs to grow up quickly and deal with a harsh world. Fortunately, she finds one friend, but gradually everything is taken away from her. One day, her life changes again, and the poor girl returns to her roots as a monstrous being. But will this bring her happiness, or does it all end in tragedy?
The Tragedy of Medusa by H Roberts is a well-presented book with some beautiful background illustrations at the beginning of the chapters. I liked how you could tell the mood of what follows from these. As someone who loves Greek mythology, I was quite interested in how this book would tackle the story of Medusa. For some, re-telling a story means butchering it. This was not the case here. The author did well, taking the original myth and making it appealing to modern readers without changing much. This is a book I couldn’t put aside and finished it in only two evenings. It was a captivating story. Now I want one about Athena or Ares.
