I have read everything Margarert George has written, and I've enjoyed them all. I was, however, a little bit disappointed with this one. It seemed as though she could have left out about 5 chapters and it wouldn't have lacked a thing. A one point, I thought, "Just build the darn horse and get it over with already!"

No need to write the story but I can say it was a very good book. Well worth spending the many hours it takes to finish it. Typically Margaret George it was lots of pages but it does keep moving. High recommend this book.

This book was absolutely fascinating and remarkable - I would even go as far as to say awe-inspiring. Margaret George is truly a genius among men. The thought, intelligence, and attention to detail that obviously went into this book is astonishing. It was exciting, suspenseful, heart-wrenching and thought provoking all at the same time. Hours after finishing it I'm still turning it over and over in my mind.

The story itself spans 60+ years and is, at its core, a biography of Helen of Troy told from her POV.
