Troy by Stephen Fry

#Troy #NetGalley


Stephen Fry has done many things, of which talented author is just one. This is the third in his erudite, witty and well-illustrated books about ancient Greece. His earlier titles, Mythos and Heroes were wonderful (re)tellings of stories, some of which I knew and some of which were new to me. Now Fry has turned his attention to tales of Troy. Yes, readers may think that they already know these stories but I can safely say that they may not and that time with this title is time well spent. I truly enjoyed it.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!

      1. Ha ha, another one that’s languishing in my unread stack!!! Ariadne was bought for me as a present for finishing my course and it looks right up my street so I can’t wait to get stuck into it. Thank you for the recommendation and I’m so glad you think I’ll enjoy it! 📚❤️ X x x
