Geras, Adele. 2000. Troy.
Troy is a soap opera of a book. There are twists and turns. Love and death. Hope and fear. Betrayal. Confusion. Told from several perspectives--a hand-maiden, a nurse and nanny, a servant who tends the horses, the women who do laundry, etc--it is an exciting, adventure story. Even though the reader can’t help but know the tragic ending, there is plenty to keep you turning the pages. It is a good read for those that can’t get enough of Greek mythology.
