I loved this book. I love reading about mythology. I loved that the author had her own take on ancient Greece. Socrates and Plato have help sculpt the world that we live in. To think that “just a woman” knew them both was very interesting. This book had the Greek justice system, a discussion about the shape of atoms and even some poetry. I can not wait to read more from this author. I am giving this book a 5/5. ~ Deal Sharing Aunt Blog
Just Myrto was a perfect blend of History and Fiction. Although I definitely knew the story of Socrates the story, and even existence, of Myrto was brand new to me. I enjoyed the Philosophy and discussions on a woman’s role in society in the 4th Century.I think Just Myrto is a great addition to any readers bookshelf who is just begining to learn about Philosophy and History or who is a dedicated scholar in such fields. 4.5/5 ~Library of the Seen
I have never read a book quite like this one. A book that captured so many things I love in a novel. Myrto is a female character who reminds me of me somewhat, which I love. Her thirst for knowledge is fantastic, allowing her to be seen in a new light. I fell in love with the characters, especially Socrates, his kindness and words of wisdom always made me smile. I wish I could find more books such as this one to read, where I somehow discover myself as I read. I would reccomend this book to ANYONE, no matter what you like to read. It’s just that good.
