‘God of War’

Everybody in Claremont is supposed to be reading Marisa Silver’s “The God of War,” a 2005 coming-of-age story set at the Salton Sea. (its lead character is a 12-year-old boy named Ares, who was the god of war in Greek mythology.)

Friends of the Claremont Library is promoting this for its fourth annual “Claremont: On the Same Page” effort. Check here for a schedule of events relating to the book, including an appearance by Silver herself.

Signs around town, such as this one at Yale and Fourth, promote the effort. That’s me holding the book (with its price sticker from Powell’s Books in Portland).

Have you read “The God of War”? I finished it last week, and liked it.

    I haven’t read the book but if it’s anything like the God of War trilogy for the PS3, I’m sure it’s awesome. Funny how there was no mention of Kratos nor the Blades of Chaos on the schedule of planned events. Hopefully it’s a surprise guest.
