McCullough once again brings the ancients to life in this fascinating account of the Greeks' 10 year struggle to overtake Troy. Although the story is familiar the approach is fresh. As I waited for the next installment of the Caesar series, I was so fortunate to have stumbled across this wonderful book! Thank you Ms. McCullough!
I loved this. A fantastic and epic retelling of the story of Troy, weaving new ideas of humanity and personality into the many characters, while giving a brilliant sense of wonder and awe in the tale itself. Helen the beautiful, Odysseus the wise, Priam the tiring, Agammemnon the proud, Achilles the tragic. A simply beautiful tale that I will read over and over again.
