Reviews

Never one to shy away from a good saga, Colleen McCullough (The Thorn Birds) tackles the Trojan War in The Song of Troy, a retelling modern in idiom but faithful to the original where it counts. Narrated by several of the key participants (Achilles, Agamemnon, Helen, etc.), it follows the war from the beginning, when Helen leaves her husband, Priam, for Paris of Troy, to the end, when Odysseus uses the wooden horse to sneak his soldiers into the city. Not aimed at classics scholars, this is a laudable interpretation of the epic, rendered with both sweep and intimacy. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

McCullough has written a beginner's guide to Homer, cutting away every last trace of poetry to expose the narrative below... She has done us all a service, reminding those familiar with the classics of the wonder of one of the greatest stories ever told. Each character's personal history is a fascinating story in itself and she retells it as if she were telling a fairy story to a child. - Guardian.There is much more to Colleen McCullough than The Thorn Birds... There are exciting moments, pacy moments, sexy and romantic moments. - Sunday Times.
