it was amazing
bookshelves: read-years-ago

The Theseus story in novel form. How often I read this as a child... developed a profound love of Greek mythology from this single book. Bullfinch's Mythology and The King Must Die. The action! The bulldancers! The black and the white sails! The character of Ariadne and how she was left behind on Naxos... Daedalus, the inventor of the labyrinth, and the queen's sin... A heady experience. Definitely due for another read.
