A Book to Read and Love: Funeral Games - Mary Renault

 


A short summary of Funeral Games:

The ending of Alexander's Empire.

My favorite quote from the book:

"Whatever the stars said, good food was good food."


Questions to ponder while reading Funeral Games:

Why do we allow greed to destroy legacies?

Why do empires require an autocrat rather than a democracy to exist?

My thoughts about the book:

Jumps about a bit.

Well-researched endings.

A great peek into the cultures of ancient society.
