    Though the Iliad is undisputedly THE book to read on the Trojan War, this one is definitely the better choice for young adults I was 12 when Chris lent me his copy of this, and about 9 or 10 when I read a graphic novel of the Iliad and about 15 when I read the actual thing I m afraid that other book shocked my young sensibilities at the time Paris s lust fueled abduction of Helen as the cause of the Trojan War seemed incomprehensible to my 9 year old mind but Evslin s emphasis on the three Though the Iliad is undisputedly THE book to read on the Trojan War, this one is definitely the better choice for young adults I was 12 when Chris lent me his copy of this, and about 9 or 10 when I read a graphic novel of the Iliad and about 15 when I read the actual thing I m afraid that other book shocked my young sensibilities at the time Paris s lust fueled abduction of Helen as the cause of the Trojan War seemed incomprehensible to my 9 year old mind but Evslin s emphasis on the three goddesses competition What began with an apple as the true cause made a lotsense This one uses simple narrative language but doesn t sacrifice storytelling for simplicity No wonder this was the book where I fell in love with Achilles, whose journey not Paris s , begins the actual story

    A great adaptation of the story of Troy without the need to tackle Homer s The Iliad The climax and the ending were cut a bit short, but all in all a great short read when wanting to delve into mythology without much commitment

    Good retelling of the Illiad for older kids and teens who aren t ready to tackle Homer The language is a bitdifficult than kids are used to nowadays we have the 1971 edition , and I don t know if changes have been made in subsequent editions I read it to my 10 year as the first step in my plot to correct the misapprehensions she has suffered from the Percy Jackson books She found the story intriguing, if not exactly gripping, and all the references to sex, rape and general pillaging we Good retelling of the Illiad for older kids and teens who aren t ready to tackle Homer The language is a bitdifficult than kids are used to nowadays we have the 1971 edition , and I don t know if changes have been made in subsequent editions I read it to my 10 year as the first step in my plot to correct the misapprehensions she has suffered from the Percy Jackson books She found the story intriguing, if not exactly gripping, and all the references to sex, rape and general pillaging went mercifully over her head

    My students and I used to refer to this as Trojan War LITE but that masks the fact this is a very compact, very readable, summation of the matter of Troy, which in all the best ways hews very close to the language and plotting of the original sources, especially the Iliad This book is an excellent way to get a quick and accurate grasp of the Trojan War story, before tackling the original Greek versions.

  7. Carrie Daws Carrie Daws says:

    I read this with my two boys, ages 12 and 15 It is a good, condensed version for older kids who are ready for mythology along with all the complexities of the relationships between the gods and man , but who are not great readers themselves This gave enough of The Iliad to expose my sons to the basic storyline without dragging it out too long for my boys who hate reading.

  8. Steven Troncoso Steven Troncoso says:

    I thought the reading was good, gave info on what was the actual cause of the war It also showed me a different side to the Olympians, you can say I grew up on the pg rating for Greek myth but this book unveiled the cloth covering my eyes regarding the rawness of relationships between Gods, man and wife I enjoyed the read

  9. Jeanette Rupel Jeanette Rupel says:

    This is a nice introduction for children to The Iliad It is well written It is written with students in mind It makes the epic come alive When students finally read The Iliad, they will have some basic knowledge of the Trojan War, allowing them to enjoy The Iliad better.

  10. Aathavan Aathavan says:

    This is the most hilarious retelling of the Trojan war for the modern reader that I have read Its irreverant approach goes well with the zaniness of the Greek mythology This book has strangely been out of print and is hard to find.
