5.0 out of 5 stars Classic of our time, 29 Nov 2008
This whole book is an incredible journey from start to finish.A love story of the kind we all remember from early childhood.That of a child for her favourite toy.Edward is a vain rabbit who's owner loves him very much to the point that he has his own place at the dinner table and possesses a rather grand pocket watch.But everything gets turned upside down when they go away on an ocean liner.My children and I could not put it down and subsequently ,it has become a firm favourite in our household.A 'Must Read' for any romantic.

Everyone thinks they know the story of Theseus and the Minotaur but Mary Renault takes you on a thought provoking journey through the terrible,ruthless world of ancient greek legend like no other author before or since.This is quite an old book,but don't let that put you off as it has really stood the test of time.You really feel you are a spectator in the stands of the bull ring in this the second novel (the first being the King must die)of Theseus' life.You can smell the desperation and feel the bull dancers fear as you turn the pages.Definatly a must have for anyone even minutely interested in Ancient Mythology.I couldn't put it down the first time I read it and have since picked it up… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars The King must Die, 13 Oct 2007
The first part of the Theseus and the Minotaur story.Mary Renault brings the tale so much to life that you feel you are walking in the young hero's footsteps.Ideal for anyone remotely interested in Greek Mythology as you find yourself going back in time to a forgotten world of superstition and wonder.One that I shall read over and over.
