*This book was chosen for me to read through the September Secret Readers program
I have a confession to make: I don't really like mermaids. I just don't find them to be interesting, even though I keep trying to find them so. There's not a lot of mermaid books that I have read, but the ones that I have just don't seem to pull me in as much as books with other supernatural creatures.
Of Poseidon had quite a few humorous moments. It wasn't a boring book. It just didn't leave a huge impression on me. Not a lot stood out. The characters weren't fantastic, though I did like most of them. There wasn't a hugely interesting plot, though it wasn't quite boring. I'm sorry I'm not being very detailed, but this is just one of those books that don't inspire me to write much of anything about it.
Overall, I liked Of Poseidon, and I may even read the sequel sometime, but I am at a loss of what else to say about it.
