Summary

Bringing ancient myth to life with passion, humour and humanity, Lindsay Clarke vividly retells the story of Troy and of the heroes who fought there.  

When the mortal Paris settles a contest between the gods, he is promised the love of Helen, the most beautiful woman in the world.  

But Helen is already married, to the powerful Menelaus of Sparta, and the kings of many cities have sworn to defend their union. Paris’ divine gift threatens to set his world aflame.

Critic reviews

"Expertly handled, drawing on the best of this classic tale and shaping it into a riveting page-turner well-suited to our times." (Daily Mail

"An engaging retelling of the whole story, neatly blending mythic archaism with modern psychodrama and satire." (Mary Beard)

"Wonderfully clear and dramatic." (The Observer

Jonathan did well but.....

Johnathan Keeble did well except when voicing Paris,i know he is supposed to be a farm-hand but the accent imho is just too much and kind of spoils the story.Again that is just my opinion.The story is a new and fresh take on what is for many a beautiful classical story of love,betrayal and WAR.This coincides nicely will Stephen Fry's final book Troy.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
