    Have always loved Greek mythology, and still do, no matter how easy the reading level...

    Endlich ist Medusa wieder an der Reihe, sie ist zusammen mit Persephone und Hades mein Favorit. Wie könnte man sie nicht toll finden, sie ist so anders als alle anderen. In diesem Abenteuer reist sie zusammen mit Dionysus nach Phrygia um eine verloren gegangene Ziege zu finden und erhält dabei durch einen glücklichen Zufall die goldenen Berührung, mit der sie in der Lage ist Sachen in Gold zu verwandeln.Medusa die sonst immer Geld Probleme hatte ist natürlich super begeistert vor Freunde, da sie denkt nun all ihre Sorgen los zu sein. Aber sie muss bald feststellen, dass Geld allein nicht glücklich macht und das es Dinge gibt im Leben die wichtiger sind als alles Gold der Welt. Bevor sie aber diese Kenntnis erlangt, passt natürlich noch eine ganze Menge.Medusa und Dionysus sind ein tolles Paar und ich würde mir wünschen, dass sie etwas öfter vorkommen würden. Medusa hat Zuneigung und Liebe verdient, ihre Familie behandelt sie ja immer so schlecht. Mir hat auch gefallen das das Buch sich wirklich nur um Medusa gedreht hat und die anderen 4 Goddess Girls nur kurz vorgekommen sind, sie haben den Hauptfiguren nämlich immer die Show gestohlen.Fazit: Das Buch war spannend, super komisch und es sind natürlich wieder viele verrückte Dinge passiert. Der Schreibstil war wie immer top und das Englisch war leicht verständlich. Die Handlung hat sich super flüssig lesen lassen und das Cover ist wieder mal super schön. Es kann für mich ruhig mehr Medusa in der Zukunft geben. Ich freue mich schon auf Band 17!!

    Medusa went with Dionysus to get his goat Silenus, King Midas gets a wish from Dionysus, his wish was to get the golden touch. The Golden Touch allows him to touch stuff and immediately it turns into gold. But when King Midas realizes that the golden touch went out of control, he transfers his golden touch to Medusa. Medusa started to sell stuff that she touched and turned into gold. She later had enough money to pay for the entry fee, but will she soon realize the golden touch was bad?The reason I picked up this book was because I liked her other books in the series and this was her newest novel so I picked it up and I also realized that I am quite interested into these gods/goddess myths, I became interested because of my friend's recommendation. The reason I finished this book was because the middle of the story was quite a cliffhanger, if I had stopped reading I wouldn't be able to know if Medusa saved Dionysus or not. I think I will recommend this book to Chantal or Shir-Anne because I know they liked the other books in this series and I'm sure they would love to read the newest novel of the series.

    Tells the story of "King Midas and the Golden Touch" very nicely and in a creative way, however I don't recall Medusa involved anywhere in the tale/myth. As this is Greek, the name is Dionysus, not Bacchus, like it is in Roman.

    Dude, the feels between Medusa and Dionysus are so real at this point. Like totally used to hate her, but she's really grown on me. Totally recommend this series in general if you're looking for a middle school level read. Started these back in the day and they are a guilty pleasure. The blend of greek mythology and a modern twist is pretty awesome. Also super short and great for quick reads (I just totally put it back on the shelf after reading a page, for like 3 months because AP week and finals and life)

    This book was great! Medusa is one of my favourite characters in this series and King Midas and the Golden Touch is one of my favourite myths, so I had high hopes. Although the Golden Touch was kind of simplified and made easier to deal with, it was still fun to read about and I enjoyed it as a storyline. As for Medusa's character... I have to admit that one thing I keep noticing with the later books in this series is inconsistencies in the characters. It feels to me like all the morally grey main characters, or even just flaws in people's personalities, are being phased out so that everyone is getting closer and closer to becoming the exact same character. Medusa still likes writing comics, and Ares still likes weapons, but for some reason it's like whenever someone gets their own POV, they are almost dumbed down for the sake of the book having a likeable main character. However, I was able to move past this and felt connected to the characters all the same.When I was about halfway through this book, I wasn't sure what was going to happen but I liked where Holub and Williams took the plot. Looking back at the ending I might describe it as sudden and too easy, but when I was reading I felt satisfied with it and I definitely think it could have been worse, so I'm happy with it.I absolutely LOVED the pirate adventure - it was an interesting twist and I felt it was good to see some proper danger for the characters, as their problems can sometimes seem juvenile and frivolous. Overall this book was a fun ride and a delightful play on the original myth. Recommended for 7 - 13 year olds.

    My 12 year old daughter wrote this review for Mother Daughter Book Reviews:This book is about is about a mortal girl who attends MOA (Mount Olympus Academy and who has snakes for hair named Medusa. Medusa is tired of being bested by her two older sisters so when she has a chance to be better, she decides to take that chance and enters the Comicontest. The only problem is, the entry fee is 15 drachmas, which Medusa does not have. But then king Midas gives Medusa his golden touch – a power to turn anything she touches into gold. But after a while the golden touch doesn’t really seem like a great thing.I really liked how usually in the Goddess Girls books, the four most popular goddesses of MOA (Athena, Aphrodite, Artemis and Persephone) aren’t exactly nice to Medusa; however, in this book, they are all helping Medusa.I learned that you should be grateful for what you already have because there is always something worse that could happen. I thought this book was really good. I really like how the author tells a different version of Greek Mythology. It’s really cool.I think girls 7-12 would like this book.

    I have to admit, I never really thought too much about Medusa until I read this series. Because of this series I now have a new favorite Greek character (I can't say goddess because she isn't one).In Medusa the Rich, Holub revisits the story of Midas and his golden touch, only this time it's told from the views of the young generation! Medusa, while trying to help the King out, ends up with the golden touch and it seems to be the best thing ever because she is always strapped for cash. The golden touch lets her change mundane things into gold so she can pay for things that she otherwise wouldn't be able to afford. Then the unthinkable happens and she accidentally turns her snakes into gold! With the help of friends she is able to reverse the damage and she even finds a new way to make some money that doesn't put her babies in danger.

    I think this was a fun book and a good edition to the goddess girl series. It's nice to see the book from Medusa's point of view, since she is not is the group of friends called the Goddess girls, and she is also a mortal. This has been happening more and more often, and I hope it continues. Anyway, I enjoyed this book, it is a fun, short read and it's nice and relaxing. If you want to read a book just because, you should try this series, like I said before, it is a quick read, but still a good one!

    Another great one in the series. I find that the ones about characters not in the main Goddess Girl "core" group are often better stories. This one does not disappoint as Medusa finds herself needing money to enter a contest with her comicscrolls and happens to take on the Midas curse. *Spoilers*There's gold-making shenanigans, a daring rescue of the boy she likes from pirates, and while everything always wraps up perfectly in these stories I couldn't help feeling a bit worried when her snakes were incapacitated! Very cute, silly, and fun read.

    I don't like the way Medusa just gives things away because her sisters say so even at the end. I have a problem with the necklace too since I have money problems of my own. Learning how wisely spend my money means to me giving a majority with something as big as that, but saving some to cover yourself, so you don't have to rely on others as much. I don't think good lessons are taught in this book for young kids.

    Fun book! Even though this is a children's book I still like to read it because it's a nice twist on Greek mythology and the gods and goddesses!This one was about medusa and king Midas and the gold touch so that was pretty cool... It was pretty cheesy but all of them are.Overall a fun little Greek mythology book, looking forward to the next one.

    As I said before, all the Goddess Girls books are extremely childish for anyone over 11 years old but this was still a very cute book. It was an extremely easy read. I really enjoyed this book!
