Interesting. Because it juxtapositions the old Myths alongside the new myth which is set in the present day while keeping the essence of the original Myths.I have always enjoyed Mythology. And Myths are always a good way to learn about a different culture. Having newly moved to the Islands, it is a good way to see things from a Hawaiian perspective.
