Black Ships by Jo Graham

Okay, I admit it. I never read “The Aenid”.

After reading “Black Ships” I think I may have to read the story that inspired the story. Oddly enough though, based on the author’s notes, while Virgil’s tale may be the first recorded version of the story of Troy’s survivors in the aftermath of the Trojan War, Graham’s is more historically accurate (though still fiction).

I really enjoyed this and never ran into a moment or a line that brought me out of the story.  Highly recommended!

I had a lot of trouble categorizing this book, so feel free to disagree with my choices—and tell me why, I’m starting to think I’m talking to myself here!
