really liked it
bookshelves: historical-fiction

I thought this was pretty good, but I read it side by side with Virtues of War by Pressfield, and frankly Pressfield blows this guy out of the water. It is a three part undertaking and I think the first one was very good, but the writing was a bit bland. Lucky for the writer Alexanders life was incredible so of course the stories are brilliant. With three books to do it in, Valerio can cover a lot of ground that other authors miss when recounting Alexanders life. Overall its a wonderful topic and an absolutely amazing history. I always enjoy reading about Alexander, as a hero he transcends time itself.
