BOOK REVIEWS

“Edward Eaton’s ORPHEUS AND EURYDICE is a dramatic retelling of a classic Greek myth. Orpheus has been blessed by the gods with the gift of song. When he meets the beautiful Eurydice, he uses his music to woo her, and they soon fall madly in love. One fateful day, soon after the couple has been wed, Eurydice is bitten by a snake and dies. Orpheus refuses to allow death to win and follows his bride into hell to bring her back and confronts Hades himself. Will Orpheus be strong enough to save his beloved Eurydice, or will their love be forever torn asunder? The Orpheus and Eurydice myth is a tragic tale of love lost and the great feats one will go through to retain it. It is a story that has been told for centuries. However, Edward Eaton’s dramatic re-telling ORPHEUS AND EURYDICE sheds new light on this love-crossed pair. Eaton allows a rare look into the main characters’ thoughts. While classic myth has been drawn upon for countless books, series, and even action-packed films, it is a fact that the original telling of these myths are most often dry accounts. They were meant to be lessons and had very little extra information. Eaton’s play does away with the boredom and creates more clarity, so that the readers can truly immerse themselves in the story. This account is sure to please any fan of classic myth and will create new fans as well. I hope to read more re-tellings by Edward Eaton.” ~ reviewed by Tania Staley for Readers’ Favorite [FOUR STARS]
