  • Well-written, but flawed

    I'm really looking forward to reading THE CHILDREN OF JOCASTA and A THOUSAND SHIPS, and as a teacher of Greek myth and drama, I applaud Haynes for bringing the Greeks to modern readers. However, as a teacher, I just couldn't "suspend my disbelief" enough to think that an untrained person would be allowed to work with disturbed adolescents under ANY circumstances, let alone be given the free rein Alex has with these damaged young people. My M.S. is in counseling, although I chose to stay in the classroom, and parts of me were cringing at her choice to expose damaged teens to the horrors of the ORESTEIA. Unlike Rustin or her boss in the book, I DO hold Alex at least partly responsible for the tragedy at the end. Blinded by her personal tragedy, she didn't take into account her effect on these five students.

    Thanks for your feedback!
