Exquisite. Delightful. Proof? I read it as a Kindly Prime freebee and then bought it for my permanent library – the physical one I can visit, talk to, smile and remember dear friends. As with The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller, Amalia Carosella takes the various, often disparate legends that revolve around a curious, ambiguous figure of Greek lore, and creates a cohesive, plausible whole. She does not take the reader along with Helen to Troy itself, but with a subtle hand she lays the groundwork that points toward Helen’s painful, well-documented future, and hints are strewn for Helen’s even more remote, post-Troy epilogue. The writing is moving, engaging, and never slows or catches me yawning, and despite Ms. Carosella’s over-zealous use of commas, I do not hesitate to recommend – highly recommend this book. Very well done.
