Editorial Reviews

Review

Refreshing...written in an intelligent tone that never belittles its audience... Although often humorous, we would stop short of calling the book a comedy, especially with an ending that I have to warn you will reduce you and your child to tears. - Wired

A magnificent synergy of art and writing. - Seattle Post-Intelligencer --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

More About the Author

In Jeremy's mind he wears a monocle every day. It perches there as he sits in restaurants reading the menu and the daily paper. When he comes across news items that shock him, the monocle pops from his socket and clatters on the table. He sips his drink and re-affixes it. In reality, Jeremy has 20/20 vision. (S)mythology is his first novel.

There were so many amazing characters throughout that I found myself attached to them as if they were my own.

You're reading a good book when you don't want it to end and that's exactly how I felt reading Smythology.

(S)mythology captured my attention immediately. The characters are so well developed and multi layered that when I finished the book I couldn't stop thinking about it and just wanted more. The characters were at once whimsical and yet completely human. The story is intimate as well as sweeping and vast and at times you feel like you're on an amazing amusement park ride with your best friends. From page one I loved Sophie and felt for her plight. I was completely drawn in and wanted her to find what she was looking for. She had so much stacked against her in the beginning! She had a quiet strength that took her on (and me along with her) a heart in your throat fantastical adventure and just when you think she might give up she doesn't. In her quest she discovers some of the most unanswered questions we all struggle with on a daily basis and most importantly what it means to love. At it's core it's a love story full of loss and redemption but what makes this work so special is that this basic story is told as a myth, a wild ride with great wit and humor where I was compelled to suspend reality and go on this amazing adventure where there are Greek Gods, Sea Nympths and the likes of Cupid and Big Foot!

One of the most weird and wonderful books I've ever read. If quirky isn't your thing, then this book is not for you. If you can completely suspend reality and just go with it, you won't be disappointed
