Can we blame an entire war on just one lovely face? Have mythology history art and literature really been fair to her? I wanted a retelling that will make Helen real and to an extent relatable I admit it's my fault for expecting too much from The Memoirs of Helen of Troy I might have enjoyed Amanda Elyot's novel if she had scrapped the trappings of historical accuracy and just played it to the steamy romance she was pretending not to write I felt like it's trying to be smart but inconsistencies inaccuracies and a

Was she abducted or did she go willingly? Was she happy being the most beautiful woman in the world or was that a curse for her? Did she love any of these men and if so

    PDF Amanda Elyot ï The Memoirs of Helen of Troy Kindle ´ The Memoirs ï memoirs mobile, helen ebok, troy ebok, The Memoirs pdf, of Helen free, Memoirs of Helen pdf, The Memoirs of Helen of Troy PDFThis novel was not to my taste Sometimes too melodramatic sometimes saccharine and much too filled with sex scenes badly written at that It was too much of a departure from the Trojan War story for me I think people would be much better off reading the original Iliad and Odyssey Helen made herself the center of the world; self absorbed and bragging how SHE influenced the main incidents of the war eg only through her submitting to Achilles was Priam able to recover Hector's body; SHE influenced the Achilles heel incidentOnly for those who are interested in all retellings of Helen's story no matter how far fetched

A justification from a self satisfied Helen of Troy who bills herself as pragmatic while accepting herself as semi divine and immortal and who uses fate as an excuse to deny herself nothing despite the conseuences Yuck
