The New York Times bestseller from Margaret George, author of Mary, Called Magdalene and Elizabeth I

With her amazing ability to summon the voices of historical characters, Margaret George tells the story of the woman whose face "launched a thousand ships" in Helen of Troy. Laden with doom, yet surprising in its moments of innocence and beauty, this is a beautifully told story of a legendary woman and her times. An exquisite page-turner with a cast of irresistible characters--Odysseus, Hector, Achilles, Priam, Clytemnestra, Agamemnon, as well as Helen and Paris themselves--and a wealth of material that reproduces the Age of Bronze in all its glory, Helen of Troy brings to life a war that we have all learned about but never before experienced.

Helen of Troy
Average rating

January 23rd, 2014
This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. I thought it could have went two ways. 1. It was old language and going to be boring 2. Almost child like with no facts and a made up story. But this book was neither of the two, I found it really interesting having been always interested in the gods and goddesses but this puts a whole new light on it with a very interesting story line which not only goes from Helens birth but to her death as well . Loved it!
