it was amazing
Read in August, 2010

This was another more ruthless-than-I'd-bargained-for book, but these professor-authors know their stuff and spare no details.
There's much-needed humor within, too.
As an art history fanatic and lover of Homer, this book satisfied, reinforcing & expanding my existing knowledge.
It connected evil dots but offered redemptive possibilities, spanning Schliemann's 19th century discoveries at Mycenae & Troy, even offering humanitarian healing after the horrors of Nazi con. camps.
If you're an idealist at heart, the possibilities inherent in this fiction could bend you towards believing an element of probability exists in this story.
All-in-all, a pretty airtight tale and the best written of the three I devoured while lying on beaches ~ speaking of which: if you like scuba diving, this is your book.
