    The illustrated version of this book is the one you should choos

    The illustrated version of this book is the one you should choose. The illustrations bring out the plot in the story and they are beautiful illustration as well. The illustrated version has the Greek ship on the cover with a blue background. The story is an adaption of the Iliad so the book would be a good introduction to the Iliad and the Trojan War for the 4th grade to 8th grade child.

    One of those perfect combinations you come about so rarely.  Rosemary Sutcliff's writing is superb - she gets the tone just right for the content.  If you're lucky enough to get the edition with illustrations by Alan Lee - you've got a book to treasure.

    A good book if you are interested in Greek Mythology. And also is a good way to read the Iliad without reading thoasands of pages. If I didn't read this for school though, with my teacher teaches us the characters, it be very difficult to understand who is who.

    Beaten up copy

    My son has yet to read this book because when it arrived, it was beaten up. It looked as though it had been passed through a meat grinder. Whoever packed the box put the beaten up copy in; the book did not get messed up in transit.

    Outstanding Book

    Rosemary Sutcliff's adaptation of the Iliad is unmatched, and the haunting illustrations by Alan Lee complement this powerful tale perfectly. I highly recommend this.
