    One thought on “Lord of the Lightning”

    1. A real roller coaster of a read that involves so many contrasting elements: ancient and contemporary history, politics, conglomerate power, disability, racial discrimination, science, Greek mythology and more, all wrapped up with a narrative that has good momentum while providing plenty of opportunity for learning and reflection. Should go down well with both younger and mature readers.

    2. This is the first book I have read where one of the protagonists has a physical disabilies. I found it challenged my preconceptions about the physical possibilities for this section of society. References to Ther Classics were very interesting and prompted me to explore this area.
