About the Author
Daniel has been all around the world, at least 20,000 times, and spent so much time reading he thought he'd try his hand at authoring. He wasn't always happy with the books he read so he wanted to improve on some of what was out there. His first book, MINOS, won a POL Books prize of $5000 and a flight to Seattle (with endless perks) for the reception and launched him to fame and glory.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Using the technique of Michener, you visit the world of the Minoans through the eyes of those who lived it. An excellent way to visit such a world. He also includes information as to how they lived at the time. For instance, how bronze was made, and why it was so important. If I had a quibble, I would say a good editor would help in identifying when character names were mixed up (especially Helene and Arika). Can be confusing. Even considering this, it was an excellent read. I learned a lot as well as being entertained. Highly recommended.
