Promethea Book 1

Author: Alan Moore

Quote: Because Promethea is imagination...and because war, all war and conflict, is naught but the failure of imagination.

Why you should read this book: Unassuming and flat-chested college student Sophie Bangs gets far more than she bargained for when her term paper research into old folklore transforms her into the latest incarnation of Promethea, spirit of the imagination, larger than life and twice as beautiful, a powerful myth with some powerful enemies. Sophie battles demons, bumps elbows with magicians and science heroes, travels to the Immateria, and begins her spiritual education with the Prometheas of time past. In the land of imagination, Sophie and the reader begin to glean the limitless power of the mind, and its limitless potential for good, evil, change, and chaos.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You don't believe in positive change and actively work to make sure the status quo is maintained.
