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.
