Told from the point of view of Alexander the Great's beloved horse, Bucephalas. A fun read and good spin on historical fiction. A lot of what Alexander does is shocking and dark, and the horse helps keep the mood somewhat light. If you want to get to know someone, take a look at the bond between them and their horse; this book allows us to do that! Everyone should be familiar with their story. It's a little slow at times, and seems like there's just battle after battle, but you have to realize..... yeah, that's what was actually going on... war, conquering, more battle. All this said, I loved this book.
