A Book to Read and Love: The Persian Boy - Mary Renault
A short summary of The Persian Boy:
Alexander from the eye of Begoas.
My favorite quote from the book:
"One must be just to the dead, who cannot answer."
Questions to ponder while reading The Persian Boy:
Do you stand upon ceremony?
Do you study philosophy?
My thoughts about the book:
Sequel to Mary Renault's Fire From Heaven
Another well-researched work of historical fiction.
Alexander the Great's life invites admiration.
*Note* The book is from the perspective of Alexander's eunuch lover and may not be for everyone.
