    1 thought on “Zeus Is Dead: A Monstrously Inconvenient Adventure

    1. Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.If there is an award for being the most well-researched smart-ass, I think Michael G. Munz would take the prize. And I mean that with the most adoring and praise-inducing admiration I can manage. While I'll try not to polish the author's ego too much, this book quickly rose through my level of favorites with it's wit, geekiness, and careless disregard of the ever prevalent fourth walls; Zeus is Dead is clever, yet e [...]

    2. This book is unlike anything I have ever read before in my life. In this story the Greek Gods are alive and well, except for Zeus, he’s dead (see title). With the King of the Gods out of the way, the remaining Olympians reveal themselves to the 21st century.Zeus is Dead is filled with great wit and humor (some of it a bit on the geeky side). It revolves around Zeus’ daughter Tracy and her heroic quest to avenge her father’s death. Tracy undertakes this quest with the help of Apollo, Thalia [...]

    3. With just under 500 pages, this book is a helluva lot longer than anything I've read recently, but the description looked promising so I gave it a shot. The basic structure is built like most books I've read, but that's the only thing typical about it. "May I read your shirt in braille, Miss?" Gems like this one pop up throughout the book, and even at the end where many authors lose steam, Mr. Munz carries his humor all the way through. It's definitely not a quick read, but each chapter offers g [...]

    4. I have been looking for other authors to fill the void when Christopher Moore does not have a new book out. This guy is now on my list. In his writing style with this book, the author is almost a character of its own. A few times the asides were a little bit long or distracting to me which is why I give it four instead of five stars, but honestly it was such a fantastically fun read that I, a busy mom with three kids, finished the book, and was so glad I read it.In fact, I am now going to see if [...]

    5. Beware. This is a long book, something that generally doesn't concern me--bring it! usually! If I like a book I want lots of it. And this one is big--441 pages if you're counting--but will feel even longer. It was a book I had to slog through, which was made harder that this was supposed to be a humorous book and being a mythology & fantasy nerd, I thought this would be a slam dunk for me. And at moments it was--but he threw it seems everything into this book. There were so many grossly unfu [...]

    6. Olympus is open for Business againA huge Thanks to the author and his team for providing me a copy of the book but at the same time i am also going to apologize for the review i am going to write It feels like i have been reading this book for ages now. Right now i look like a zombie in progress, with swollen red eyeballs threatening to pop out and eye bags reaching the floor.To think of it, the book was only 446 pages and i have read books more voluminous than this one but nothing has induced f [...]

    7. So, I came across this book initially on the wonderful imgur. I was drawn in by the puns. Those of you who follow me know I have a serious problem with puns. It's an epundemic. (See!?). Add Greek mythology on top of that? This Classics minoring internet-dweller was sold.Y'all, this book is effing hilarious. I loved the way that Munz sucked the reader in, not just with the plot of his book but with his engagement with the readers. It was as though the book narrator was telling you, the reader, a [...]

    8. This is a very unique book. Why? The author is unusually aggressive about breaking the “Fourth Wall” (aka, the separation between the reader and the characters/narrator). This enables a whole new kind of humor. It was very cheeky. For example, at one point the narration says (paraphrasing) “Intelligent readers may be wondering if this is all a devious trick! It may or may not be a devious trick. We won’t tell you. Of course, you may say why bring this up at all if there is NO trickery in [...]

    9. Alright, so Zeus has been murdered and the rules of the game have changed. Gods freely interact with the mortal humans, and this is more than with a friendly hello. The gods are loving their freedom. The humans are not quite sure how to handle this. But no one seems to really ask, "Who killed Zeus?"This book takes the reader on an adventure that looks deeper into the death of Zeus. It follows the need for one of the many Greek gods and goddesses to help the unfolding of a prophecy while trying t [...]

    10. I really wanted to love this book, but I ended up only liking it okay. I'm a huge fan of Greek Mythology and while reading the book I felt it read like an adult version of Percy Jackson, but less compelling. While the premise is awesome, I honestly feel I only finished reading it because it was about Greek Gods. Munz chose to constantly use the fourth wall throughout the book and it worked great in some instances, but then became an overused tool used lazily to fill in the blanks for narrative i [...]

    11. Hilarious! The Gods are back and their family dysfunction set against a modern backdrop is wonderful. Watching the Gods struggle with the added responsibilities brought on by increased population and modern technology is fantastic. We have Titans, Gods, demigods, the mortal children of Gods, Muses, Fates, Erinyes, monsters, and even some mortal humans with absolutely no genetic relationship to any Gods. Munz has a wonderful sense of humor and no fear of breaking the fourth wall. In fact sometime [...]

    12. This is a spectacular book! I can't get over how well-researched, knowledgeable, and downright fun this book was to read. It's longd you don't want it to end. The plot is a great starting point: the Greek Gods return to Earth and wreak their own special kind of havoc. A couple of mortals are involved, and quests are given. But that doesn't begin to cover the hilarity and suspense of the book. There are monsters, big and small. Muses. Plasma televisions. The action scenes are masterfully written. [...]

    13. I loved this book. The Greek Gods have returned, and a couple of mostly hapless humans are caught up in forces that are mostly beyond their control. It's hilarious throughout: the fourth wall is shattered to dust, and yet the story remains engaging--this is no mean feat, and something I really admired about this book. But all other considerations aside, it's a really fun and funny book that reminded me of the best of Christopher Moore's early work. Highly recommended to fans of fantasy and humor [...]

    14. The death of Zeus has removed previous restrictions placed on the Pantheon allowing them access to the mortal realm once again. The Pantheon integrates eagerly into modern society by garnering new worshipers, creating new monsters, and reclaiming their mantles with added celebrity status. Apollo soon receives prophetic visions that test his loyalty and makes him question the loyalty of those around him.Zeus Is Dead is an amusing cohesive story with a narrative that parodies familiar literary tro [...]

    15. This book is cleverly written, witty, and quite silly!The story is a romp through the modern world with ancient characters- the Greek gods are back! I loved Greek mythology as a kid, so watching the gods adapt to modern mortals throughout the course of this adventure is just plain fun. The plot gallops from misadventure to misadventure, dodging monsters, eluding the Furies, and trying to figure out who killed Zeus. The characters are likable, the pop/geek culture references make me feel smart, a [...]

    16. Munz has done an excellent job of bringing the Greek gods into the 21st century, with an irreverent look that captures the essence of their capricious nature. He excellently blends humor and plot into a delightful read. Seeing how the gods interact with modern life is sure to make you chuckle. A note of caution. Munz does like to break the 4th wall on occasion. Actually, he smashes it down and tap dances on the rubble. If that isn't your cup of tea you may find this book a little unsettling. But [...]

    17. "Zeus Is Dead: A Monstrously Inconvenient Adventure" is a humorous tale of the impact of Zeus's death on the Greek gods and modern human society. The tale is rife with puns and satire, as well as humorous happenings. Apollo, a TV producer, a gaming geek, a big game hunter, and some muses attempt to resurrect the lead god while fending off other gods, who like the new order, and monsters that are appearing on earth. Gods in Las Vegas, on Twitter, and TV add to the confusion. I recommend the novel [...]

    18. Really very entertaining. This ended up being a really great book. It started slow and awkward. The humor was a little forced at first. But, it became a book I couldn't put down. The story telling was spectacular and the style of humor really grew on me. I highly recommend it.

    19. Terry Pratchett meets Douglas Adams in this farce of Greek gods returning to modern times.The idiot ball, for those who are unaware, is the bane of good fiction. In any television show, movie, neighborhood play, or, yes, novel whenever a previously intelligent character does something that anyone with more than badger feculence for brains would consider gut-wrenchingly foolish—or fails to grasp a solution to a problem so obvious it may as well be dressed in a neon green pantsuit, jumping up an [...]

    20. Not Adams. Something else. Everyone wants to be Douglas Adams. Why be Douglas Adams? Douglas Adams was Douglas Adams. Be someone else. But some reviewer or flyleaf blurb writer or publicist had to go and tell me this guy was the second coming of Douglas Freaking Adams. He's not. And not being Douglas Adams is just fine and a good thing. Except as I read, since the Adams link was asserted so loudly all I could do was compare the writing to Adams's. So every injected bit of silliness seemed contri [...]

    21. Finished reading " Zeus is Dead: A Monstrously Inconvenient Adventure " by Michael G. Munz. Even though it took me a while to finish it I have to admit I liked it. I thought it was very good. Very funny and the writing really reminded me of Douglas Adams.As it turns out the true gods of our world are the ancient Greek gods! would have guessed! For many years the gods didn't show their presence due to an oath the Zeus made them all swear to. The other gods in the pantheon weren't happy about it a [...]

    22. If you like a somewhat serious story with an off-beat, rambling telling, this is it. It has all the elements you need to make a great story: a hero(ine), gods, a quest, and monsters galore! Not to mention the threat of death! Because you just can't have a good quest without a threat of death. It's just not how these things are done, donchaknow. Oh, and there's a mystery. Whodunit? Inquiring readers want to know! What if the Olympic gods are old were actually real? And decided it was time to come [...]

    23. While I like the plot of this book, I did not like the writing style. The author breaks the fourth wall on nearly every page, and that gets old really fast. He does use that method to remind the reader of who certain minor characters are, but surely there was another way besides sounding like a teenage writer trying to be clever (and after 34 years of teaching high school English, I know what teenage writing looks like). I would have preferred more development of a couple of the main characters [...]

    24. Having just read the GoneGod series where gods leave mortals and almost-immortals to fend for themselves, I found Zeus is Dead to be an equally interesting book dealing with the reverse situation - the Olympians return to their previous stomping grounds and demand attention from mortals.I found this book refreshing, humorous and fun. Some readers may dislike the repeated breaches of the fourth wall and the book is rather long at over 400 pages but I didn't mind these details.The attempts made by [...]

    25. Zeus' control over the Greek gods slips when he gets murdered. Without his power to stop them, the other gods descend to reinstate their control over earthly affairs. And to spread monsters. But, in the case of disaster, Zeus had a back-up plan. One which depends on mortals, and a tenuous chance that might get him resurrected. Unless the other gods manage to stop the plan. I had fun with this story and enjoyed the conclusion.

    26. Excellent WeirdnessCrazy humor abounds. It's completely insane and very imaginative. I enjoyed the classical gods and how they were woven into modern society. I liked the comments that pull you out of the narrative and have you shaking your head and rolling your eyes. Great writing, except one remark that a bird was chewing. Birds don't chew, they have no teeth. This is a talented spoof with a well deserved nod to Douglas Adams among the puns and mythological references.

    27. This book really grew on me as it went along. The plot line of the Olympian Gods returning to the modern 21st century world was intriguing, and was taken on with a tongue-in-cheek style reminiscent of Douglas Adams or Christopher Moore. I felt like it got off to a slow start, but about a third of the way through, once all the players were on the board, it picked up speed, and I eagerly sped through the rest.

    28. This is a highly amusing tale about (obviously)the Roman pantheon coming back after "killing" their leader, who had kept them all from wandering Earth & being worshiped for lo these many centuries. There is much mystery, comedy and action as two "mortals", a muse & a god help save the world from the moreunpalatable of the immortals.
