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.
A great peek into the cultures of ancient society.
