Inhaltsangabe

Brought to you by Penguin. 

Following the best-selling retellings of the Greek myths in Mythos and Heroes, Stephen Fry's bewitching third volume, Troy - concerning love and war, passion and power - is now ready for ordering.    

The story of Troy speaks to all of us - the kidnapping of Helen, a queen celebrated for her beauty, sees the Greeks launch a thousand ships against the city of Troy, to which they will lay siege for 10 whole and very bloody years.  

It is Zeus, the king of the gods, who triggers the war when he asks the Trojan prince Paris to judge the fairest goddess of them all. Aphrodite bribes Paris with the heart of Helen, wife of King Menelaus of the Greeks, and naturally, nature takes its course. 

It is a terrible, brutal war with casualties on all sides as well as strained relations between allies. The Greek's most fearsome warrior, Achilles, argues with King Agamemnon, his commander, over another woman, the Trojan slave Briseis. The consequences lead to terrible tragedies.

In Troy you will find 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 today.   

It is a myth in which we seek the truth about ourselves and which Stephen Fry brings breathtakingly to life.

Amazing! Just it isn’t broken down by chapters well.

The book is amazing and if you liked the two previous voyages into greek mythology you will love this. Very calming and enchanting. The reason for a star less is because it isn’t broken by chapters well. It has two giant chapters of 4 hours in the middle and even the other ones comprise a few so it’s a bit hard to orient yourself if you want to listen to something again. But that’s audibles fault and not Stephan Fry’s. No fault with him or his work. Brilliant as always.
