A great story... history and fiction perfectly merged
on March 25, 2014
I litteraly wolfed this book. Outstanding! And knowning that most of the facts are actually real facts makes it even more enchanting...
Unbelivable how people of ancient times were, in many aspects, much more advanced than how we ever thought.
Last, but not least, the author; a very trustable historian and archeologist, with the rare quality to make complicated political, social,religious and military issues of the past something easy to understand as reading a simple novel.
I reccomend this book, and all the other of the same writer, to everyone who wants to learn so much of ancient history without the necessary difficulty of classical history books.
