Sad treatment for a classic of historical fiction
- Sarah Blair
First why adbridge it , Mary Renault is a wonderful intellegent writer and it is great story.
He has a great speaking voice , but what a waste . I couldn't finish it . I felt like I was being droned and lectured at :(
Cut none of it !!!
I would love to have her books available , part of the problem with her books is they are not for the lazy reader , she uses language and words you rarely hear these days . Alot of the pronunciation is difficult as few of us know Greek . I had been hoping for a lazy way to enjoy her books and didn't get it.
