Description

In this brilliant conclusion to his bestselling Mythos trilogy, legendary author and actor Stephen Fry retells the tale of the Trojan War with his trademark wit and vibrance. Full of tragic heroes, intoxicating love stories, and the unstoppable force of fate, there is no conflict more iconic than the Trojan War. Troy is the story of the epic battle retold by Fry with drama, humor, and vivid emotion. Achilles, Hector, Odysseus, Helen, their lovers, and their mortal enemies all burn bright in Fry's compelling prose. Illustrated throughout with classical art inspired by the myths, this fresh take on an ancient tale invites you to explore a captivating world with a virtuoso storyteller as your guide. BELOVED AUTHOR: Stephen Fry is an icon whose signature wit and mellifluous style makes this retelling utterly unique. Fans will love hearing his interpretation, whether they are familiar with the original Greek myths or not. STUNNING SERIES CONCLUSION: Mythos and Heroes, the first two installments in the Greek mythology trilogy, were international bestsellers. Now fans can complete their set and read the thrilling third book. GORGEOUS GIFT: With a vibrant contemporary design, full-color artwork throughout, and shimmering metallic highlights on the jacket, this book makes a superb present. READERS LOVE IT: Stephen Fry's Greek Myths series' nearly 5-star rating and rave reviews make each of the three volumes a winner. "Stephen Fry is our modern-day Homer," one reviewer declares, while another observes that "you really feel as if you're there as the events take place." Buzzfeed says, "It's a quick-witted retelling so beginners and experts can both get something from it." Perfect for: Readers of Madeline Miller's Circe and Song of Achilles, Edith Hamilton's Mythology, and Neil Gaiman's Norse Mythology People who enjoy reading timeless stories, from fairy tales to Viking mythology to legends of Greek gods Fans of classic literature and poetry about ancient Greece
