Ind heroism and hatred love and loss revenge and regret desire and despair It is these human passions written bloodily in the sands of a distant shore that still speak to us toda. I was waiting for this book ever since I finished Heroes the second book in the series Troy is my favourite subject to read about since it is full of great myths stories heroes villains sorrow pain lust and love I knew Stephen Fry would do a great job at retelling the greatest story of all times And he did a brilliant job This book goes back to the beginning of Troy and takes us on a journey from there to the end the end of Troy the end of honour and the end of a great era We get to know Hector Achilles their parents Paris Helen and where they came from and how the Olympians interfered with their lives I am still shocked how the destiny and fate shaped the fall of Troy from such an early stage This book is not a heavy read It is very enjoyable but you still learn a lot about Troy I was laughing feeling sad annoyed angry and happy at the same time whilst reading this I feel lucky and blessed to have read Stephen Fry’s retelling of the greatest story of all times I hope he will continue retelling the Greek myths and other historical events because his style is funny informative and respectful He never tries to interpret the story never tries to shape it into something else and the retelling never feels pretentious at any point This was brilliant I bought it the day it was published and finished it in three sittings I love Stephen Fry and cannot recommend this book enough 5 GOLDEN STARS

TROY 202 GRANDThe story of Troy speaks to all of us the kidnapping of Helen a ueen celebrated for her beauty sees the Greeks launch a thousand ships against the city of Troy to which they will. I’m in the middle of reading “Troy” which I bought to refresh my knowledge of the so called Trojan War and to enjoy Stephen Fry’s inimitable style and sense of humour I’m not disappointed on either count With its mixture of the erudite the tragic and the often hilarious “Troy” is proving to be one of this gloomy year’s best reads for me
