Suggested By: Striped Sweaters Forever

 

 

At First Glance: The cover isn't all too eye catching, but the blurb makes up for it. That quote is certainly something.

 

Chapter One - Introduction: A note of sorts from the author. A small glossary is made at the end so you can familiarize yourselves with the characters. It seems a promising opening.

 

Chapter Two - tell me of Helen of Troy;: Beautiful. The dialogue spoken, descriptions written and story told are all beautiful. Never in my life have I been one for Greek mythology or the stories told about them. But this fanfiction makes me want to read them. It honestly shows you a side of the stories that was never told. Never even touched upon in the movies created. It honestly is a beautiful work of fiction and I am glad it was written. 

Although the grammar could use some cleaning up.

 

Overall: This truly is a wonderful story that should be read. Aside from minor grammatical mistakes it reads beautifully and should be a must read on everyone's list. I wondered too as to why the title itself has a semicolon in it, but it becomes clear in the story.

 

Recommendations: The author tends to write some run on sentences and the semicolons are too often. But other than that there are no complaints.

 

To Read Or Not To Read: It's an obvious read. If you haven't already, read this story.
