Book Review of Troy

Author: Adele Geras
Genre: Literature & Fiction
Book Type: Paperback
reviewed on
Helpful Score: 3

I read this to see what my 9th grade daughter was reading for high school. I thought it was a very unique way to explain the Trojan war and greek mythology in way that wouldn't bore a teen, or someone who didn't already know. For me, the book started out interesting as the teen characters were introduced. But by the middle of the book, the story became dull and repetitive. It was difficult to finish. But I do think my daughter got something out of it.
