5.0 out of 5 stars A real life changer, 18 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Traveler's Gift (Hardcover)
I read this book for the 1st time about 10 years ago and still read it whenever I feel my life has gone a bit wayward and need to find some direction. It contains some very good lessons in life and has transformed the way I see the world and live my life.

The Mask of Troy
The Mask of Troy
by David Gibbins
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars skip this for one of Gibbins' other books instead, 18 Feb. 2014
This review is from: The Mask of Troy (Paperback)
I'm a fan of historical fiction books that involve a bit of action, but this book lacked the action part completly and turned into a 300-odd page book theorising what really happened at Troy. It feels like Gibbins has used this book to show off his archaelogical and history knowledge and has completly forgotten about the plot of the story.

Gibbins has created some very likeable characters through his series, but does he need to include each and everyone of them in his stories? The pace of the book is really slow and every character has to have their say and give their opinion on Troy and show off a bit of their knowledge. I really like Gibbins' books so endured through this one with the hopes it would improve and something interesting might actually happen...it didn't. Avoid this book if you are a fan of Gibbins as it will stop you from wanting to read his other, more impressive stories.
