Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on December 23, 2004
I recently became very interested in Alexander the Great. It all started with the release of "Alexander", starring my beloved Colin Farrell. I guess you could say it was my love for Colin that lead me to where I am. You see, when I become interested in something, especially in something where there isn't much known (example, practaclly all of Alexander's personal life and more imporantly the reason and mystery behind his sudden death.)I research tirelessly until I know all there is about that subject, no matter the cost nor whatever sacrifces I must make, I will spend every waking moment researching. I am 16 and have been like this since I was 8,the same time when I began my research on Evita after I saw the movie starring Madonna and Anotonio Bandarez. I did the same for Anastasia after seeing the amimated movie "Anastasia" starring Meg Ryan. (Which, by the way, I don't believe that Anastasia lived much past the killing of her family. She may have played dead after everyone was shot and then hid, but she was eventually found and killed. Her brother didn't make it either, all the Romanov's were executed unjustly for the cost or thr Revolution.) But back to Alexander, In the somewhat extensive research I've done in only 3 days shy of one month, I have learned so much and have come to so many of my own conclusions. I could go on forever about those, but this book has changed how I think about life, and certain sacrifices that we choose to make. I read page 94, the very last page, several times throughout the day, just because it seems so important to me and it seems like something Alexander would say. If you read this book and listen to what the words are telling you, instead of just reading them, to anyone who values Alexander, it sems like he was guiding the authors' hand with every word he wrote. But I read that last page when I wake up in the morining, a few times during the day, and right before I go to bed. I don't know why, it just seems to reach out and grab me and pull me into Alexander's world and make me want to know more. Anyone who loves Alexander and his stories and legends should deffinately buy this book or find anyway to read it. I read it and finished it the same day it was delivered to my house along with two other Alexander books (which i haven't finished yet, but will soon) and they don't hold a torch to this one. I HIGHLY recomend this book to everyone! If you can't buy it, borrow it, but keep your hands off of my copy!
