I've heard of Bova's work before and contemplated reading some of his scifi work, so it's kind of funny that I ended reading, "The Hittite." There's not much to say about this book. Bova gives readers his take on the Trojan War thru the perspective of a Hittite soldier who ends up at Agamemnon's enemy camp looking for his wife and two son who have been sold into slavery. My biggest issue with this book is the fact that it was so difficult to relate with the main character. I realize that Bova is attempting to portray a realistic portrait here, but from a storytelling perspective this approach really doesn't work for me.
