Hmmm. Most of the Greek myths go along the lines of Zeus or Apollo was horny. The nymph or mortal woman was not. Shenanigans ensued. LOL metamorphosis :P

I loved the Goose Girl because of the famous painting by William Leech (which was recently proven not to have been a Leech at all - scandalous!) but I found it so hard to get into that book, I liked nobody in it.

The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale?

Yep. I bought it because I loved the Leech painting, and I just... Could not get into it. I must see if it's still in the bookcase or if it went to the charity shop. I'll give it a reread if I still have it.

ETA I just reread my original comment. I loved the original tale of The Goose Girl because of the Leech painting, but I couldn't get into the Hale book at all.

Aww, I found the world fascinating from the first page or so. And I liked how she found reasons for all of the things that happened in the original tale.
