    If you have ever read Homer s Iliad, this book will seem really familiar to you If you haven t, you ll never know that this is basically a retelling of Homer s great epic The difference between Homer and Clarke, though, is that you ll find Clarke much easier to read if you found Homer impossible I ve read Homer s version and loved it I m a fan of the Greek myths and tragedies I can say with all honesty that Clarke s version of the story of Troy is wonderfully written, but some might take issue with it if they are particular about details This is a fiction book, not a historical account For anyone familiar with archaeology and history, please keep that in mind as you read this tale It makes it much enjoyable As for how faithful it is to the Iliad, Clarke used several reliable sources and account for his version of the retelling Armed with these sources, Clarke writes a compelling novel in modern day English that everyone should find enjoyable and easy t...

    I found this to be a clever retelling of Homer s epic Essentially, it takes the supernatural components out of the story, grounding the characters in a modern understanding of reality The language is also much easier to read, though in no way better.For people who don t have the patience to read The Iliad, this book will tell you the story for half the brain price Unfortunately, you also get what you pay for There is beauty in the way Th...

    Whew How long was I slogging through that oneThis is a better book than the time I could devote to it Lacking a full classical appreciation for The Iliad , the web of relationships between kings and gods left me searching Wikipedia to find out who was who..but when the action or the drama was ripe, it was a good read indeed Unfortunately, much of ...

    If you re unfamiliar with the various stories surrounding the ancestors and players in The Trojan War, you might find this book a readable aggregator of the characters and myths I ended up skimming most of it because I knew the myths and Clarke added nothing new to the story It seems the antithesis of Gemmell, who completely rewrote the War and well known characters in a way that almost parodied itsel...

    I truly enjoyed reading this book, as I do any that revolve around the Trojan War Trouble is, having read over a dozen translations of Homer s Iliad, it left me a little disappointed only in the retelling T...

    It s impossible to read the English classics or even to have learnt to read at the time I did without having some sort of familiarity with the people and some of the major events of the Trojan War I ve never read The Iliad, but Robert Graves s The Greek Myths, credited as a source for this, has sat on my shelves these thirty years and been read at least once in that time However I don t remember it containing the overview, big picture, whole story that this re telling gave There is also a good feel for the main characters and their motivations, so that the main protagonists, even Helen, seemed real than they do from p...

    A great read in my opinion I ve never read The Illiad perhaps some day I ll get round to it but knew the basics of the story This explanded on that basic knowledge and I found it thoroughly captivating It was very well written and moved at a comp...

    Un romanzo veramente molto interessante, di stile narrativo molto fluido Clarke ha un notevole rispetto nei confronti della mitologia da cui parte e di cui evidentemente un gran conoscitore.Pregevole l epilogo.

    Bello, sicuramente bello.Attraverso la figura di Femio, l autore racconta in forma romanzesca la famosa guerra di Troia partendo dall infanzia degli eroi pi famosi fino a giungere al racconto del conflitto.Vi sono alcune parti interessanti, altre che secondo me hanno preso invece troppo distacco dall opera originale e per questo ...
