Evaluation

Keep A Lid On It, Pandora is a very interesting book. It's one of the best books ever! The book is taking Greek myths and completely turning around the events. For example, the original myth was that Pandora got very curious and opened the " very exciting surprise " box from Zeus. Then, many different evil beings came out and stays in the world for eternity. But, in this story, Pandora didn't do anything wrong. Zeus opened the box, and then blamed Pandora. Totally different, right?! It didn't matter how this book was written, it didn't matter how long this book was, I read this book, and I loved it. Some day, you should read this book too. Trust me, you will love it as much as I did.
