Reviews

Praise for Black Ships Before Troy An ALA-YALSA Best Book for Young Adults "A splendid offering, bringing the ancient tale to new and vibrant life."--Kirkus Reviews, Pointer "Amazingly told, taut with cunning and terror."--Booklist "[Sutcliff] brings into vivid focus the mythic story of the Trojan War, with all of its visually dramatic elements...[and] leaves many of the epic's powerful metaphors intact."--Publishers Weekly Praise for The Wanderings of Odysseus "[Sutcliff] retells Homer's Odyssey with thrilling drama...The story of the hero's long years of wandering...has the mythic power of everyone's search for home...[and she] fuses epic grandeur with a direct simplicity that will bring the universal story home."--Booklist "Rosemary Sutcliff has done a great service...by warmly and carefully abridging two classics that many people find difficult to tackle in their original form. Not only has she broken the long tales into tolerable and interesting chapters, she has smoothed out the language while keeping true to all of the original drama and excitement."--Parent Express "An intimate portrait of a man....Readers will enjoy this classic adventure."--SLJ
