One thought on “The Walls of Troy

  1. Rosalind Minett

    This is the second of a trilogy where the Greek myths are re imagined through the eyes of a young girl Staying true to the original Odyssey, the author develops the life of Odysseus sister, Neomene, only fourteen when the trilogy begins The Girl from Ithaca Readers would gain the most enjoyment by reading this book first, set before and during the Trojan war.In the Walls of Troy, Neomene is now mature, although still in her late teens Life was dangerous and taxing for even the high born as moral [...]

    I liked this book and this author The price was free It is not often that I get free and good combined The author s writing mechanics were good An error two temporarily stopped the reading flow for me I especially liked the author s descriptions of people, their thought processes, and their resulting actions Not only did I like it, I thought her work superb in that area The fictitious character, Neomene, reminded me of the inn keeper s daughter in LES MISERABLES My mental picture of Neo was that [...]

    Cherry Gregory knows a lot about the legends of Troy The historical detail is totally convincing but she wears her learning lightly The story of Neomene, younger sister of Odysseus, continues her embroiled in the death of Achilles and the fall of Troy itself The action is exciting and the large cast of characters well drawn and totally convincing.Exciting, convincing and beautifully written.

  4. Lacey Mennona

    I loved itI really enjoyed this book The characters were well developed and were easy to like or hate Even though I know the story of the Trojan Horse this was such a great filler for those details that left me wondering Well written I will read of Cherry Gregory I wish I knew what happened to the characters I love and hate.

  5. Laura

    This would be a 3.5 star for me, really I enjoyed reading this continuation of the story of the Trojan War, told from the perspective of Odysseus younger sister, Neomene I like how Neomene is an active participant, not just an observer, in the action.

  6. Dorothy Mills

    Good endingThe well known story of the Trojan horse is told from a personal point of view Very readable and complete.

  7. Stephanie

    I thoroughly enjoyed this insight into the day to day events and lifestyle of Odysseus sister during the Trojan War I am looking forward to the next installment.

  8. Rachel

    Great book I loved being able to read a story of historical fiction from a woman s point of view A definite must read.

  9. Destiny

    Humans or myths I was pleased with the humanity of the myths and the superstars of mythology It was fun to imagine how day to day went.

    This was a fantastic sequel to The Girl from Ithaca, The Walls of Troy takes you deeper and deeper into the Trojan War and ends with the departure of the Greeks to their homelands I m hoping that a sequel is on the way for Odyseuss s presumably longish journey home The story starts around the 7th year of the Trojan War, still through the eyes of Neomene, the sister of Odyseuss, and our little heroine She is now mature, grown far than her age through the tragedies of war She has known cold, lon [...]

    Trickery, a cool head, and courage are required if a young woman and her brother are to conquer Troy and also save the lives of some of the people who will fall to Agamemnon s armies Getting captured is not necessarily a bad thing if you can use it to save lives of worthy adversaries And sailing your army away is not necessarily admitting defeat if you use it to build a false sense of security that lets you get the best of them while they are celebrating their assumed victory What does author Gr [...]

  12. Rebecca Hislop

    The Walls of Troy follows on from The Girl from Ithaca and continues the story of Neomene, sister of Odysseus, who finds herself playing a crucial role during the final months of the siege of Troy Once again the story is told by Neomene which draws the reader into the heart of the action The war has gone on for years and as time passes Neomene has adapted to the hardships of life in camp the details of which are clearly described She learns new skills in medicine and even archery during this tim [...]

    In book two, The Walls of Troy, we follow Odysseus and his sister Neomene as they battle their way through to the fall of Troy While I enjoyed the story I found the telling to be a tad slow I was really hoping we would be further along by the end of this book, instead where are we The war has at least ended, thank goodness I assume that we still have to deal with tale of Odysseus adventure, which is what I had thought was the entire point of this series While I was very interested in book one, m [...]

    This is a Fascinating Story About the Itacans and Their Rescue of Helen of Troy.I enjoyed reading about the building of the Trojan horse, and the events that led up to it It was intriguing to see history from Neomene s point of view, since she was the sister of Odysseus Tales of Helen of Troy and the Trojan Horse will be around long after we re all gone It s a bit difficult keeping all of the characters straight, due to the foreign names, but the story was still very good I hope everyone else th [...]

  15. Chris Gregory

    Excellent historical fictionFirst of all, let me emphasize that the author is not a relative however, I did receive this book while it was offered free on Book Bub.This is a riveting read that will hold your attention throughout I especially enjoyed this as a sequel to Walls of Ithaca, both well done It s not often that fictional history is told from the view of a woman, and that is a real plus in this case Neomene is an identifiable protagonist who will capture your heart and your interest High [...]

  16. Janet

    This is the second book in a trilogy which follows on from The Girl from Ithaca In The Walls of Troy we find Neomene still with the Greek camp, laying siege to Troy after Paris s abduction of Helen The book continues seamlessly from the first, it s beautifully written and the plot brilliantly executed If you liked The Iliad you ll love Cherry Gregory s telling of the great Greek legends Her characters enact of their fates with aplomb, against a rich background of Gods, Demi gods, prophesies and [...]

  17. C. Threadgoode

    Action and romance sprinkled in to make a truly delicious story A wonderful sequel to the first bookThe Girl from Ithaca The Greek myths and historical details are painted perfectly by this author with loads of action and romance sprinkled in then gently woven together like a well written book should be I turned each page with excitement to know I highly recommend this book, and have and cant wait for the next one.

  18. Patricia Ruiz

    History coming aliveReading history is usually hard to get through, but Cherry Gregory found a way to bring it alive in the pages of her book Enjoyed this very much learning about Helen of Troy and the Trojan Horse through scenes vs history.

  19. Beatriz

    Somewhat slowAfter reading The Girl from Ithaca, I couldn t wait to get to Book 2 However, it was slow paced and found myself bored When I finally got to the climax, all I wanted was to get it over.

  20. Heather

    The continuing story of Neomene, sister of Odysseus In this book, she comes into her own a bit than in the first book My only complaint is I d like to read about Neomene s version of the odyssey Perhaps there will be a third book

  21. Suzanne

    Slow and boring No action, confusing characters, kept hoping it would get better The author seemed to wrap everything up in the last few pages.

  22. Carol Wilt

    Great storyMost enjoyable story Takes your breath away at times Interesting how the idea of the Trogan Horse came about This story is one of those you hate to put down.

  23. Vince

    Good ReadEnjoyed this book with another look at the Trojan War Seen from a woman s point of view other than Helen this book is a fascinating read.
