it was amazing
bookshelves: historical-fiction-classical
Read in August, 2008

This is a long, long, long book. But so well written and so geniusly done that it's well worth the time spent reading.

I'm always amazed by authors who can write a novel about a well known character and their well known story and still make it intriguing and fascinating. Margaret George is definitely one of those writers. Being a mythology lover, I'm familiar with this classic tale. I know what happens to Helen and her beloved Paris. But George creates a story around them, a setting of the incomprable Troy and she makes you believe that the envitable will not happen. She makes you believe that the lovers who caused that famous war would be together forever. And that's true story telling!

And the best part is the ending, so genius, so brillant!
