I have read the reviews that are above mine and i mean come on the book has a character list that is SEVEN WHOLE PAGES LONG. The characters that apper die seven minutes later. if you read this book you will be able to put it down with such ease it is scary. If you do read prepare to want your money.

I definately disliked this book. I hated this book from start to finish!!!! The characters were left undeveloped and the plot was incomplete. New characters were constantly being added, creating a sense of incompletion. I would recommend this book to few people.

This wonderful re-telling of Homer's poem, The Iliad is hard to put down. From the golden apple to the fall of Troy, The Trojan War is explained in great detail while keeping the reader interested. I recommend it to all who enjoy History and Mythology as much as I do.

I love this book. It is written passionately. It goes beyond the scope of the Illiad by explaining what happens to the characters after the war. One of the greatest mythological books ever!
