The King Must Die - Mary Renault - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The King Must Die:

Retelling the tales of Theseus.

My favorite Mary Renault quote from the book:

"A man is at his youngest when he thinks he is a man, not yet realizing that his actions must show it."


Questions to ponder while reading The King Must Die:

Should kings die every year?

Would you be willing to dance with the bulls?

My thoughts about The King Must Die:

Great redo.

Marriages should be equal.

Self-sacrifice can be noble.
