BE THERE THE MIDDLE PART OFthere The middle part of s trilogy about Alexander the Great follows his story from the moment of his army s crossing into Asia until his foray into Egypt and visit to the oracle of Siwa While this was a fairly uick read and I enjoyed It For The Most Part for the most part À quoi rêvent les algorithmes did get a bit longwinded in places and I would like to see less superficial characterisations A tremendous story After the slightly slow paced introduction to his trilogy ALEXANDER CHILD OF A DREAM Valerio Massimo Manfredioes away with all that wishy washy supernatural stuff to focus on what a story about Alexander the Great should be about the warfareTHE SANDS OF AMMON is an absolutely tremendous book that BWWM (Interracial African American Billionaire Baby Romance Marriage Urban) 40 (Interracial African American Billionaire Baby Romance Marriage Urban) 40: Billionaires Secret Baby (Interracial African American Romance Urban Baby Romance Short Stories) depicts epic world changing events on a regular basis It s an episodic journey narrative revealing Alexander s travels as he takes both his companions and his armies around the world capturing everything he finds along the wayObviously it s when the cities resist his occupation that things get really interesting and the manyepictions of siege warfare are violent gritty and tremendously exciting Manfredi has a knack of taking complex confused situations and Spare the Child: The Religious Roots of Punishment and the Psychological Impact of Physical Abuse depicting them in simple easily understandable terms that pays offividendsThings Managing Activism A Guide to Dealing with Activists and Pressure Groups do threaten to slowown with some rather extraneous sub plots that are plonked in such as Aristotle s investigation of King Philip s assassination but thankfully things always uickly return to what Manfredi Faith Into Action: Thoughts on Selected Topics does best the battles And this is an excellent read because of that The greatest character in history photographed magnificently by Valerio Massimo Manfredi In my opinion this writer is a genius He is an archaeologist and also a professor like Indiana Jones Between the 1970s and the 1980s he has undertaken the Anabasis expeditions for the reconstruction of the itinerary of the Ten Thousand s retreat This makes his historical books look like even interesting as the great novels whoseevelopment is unknown Nobody is able to present the story like Manfredi I highly recommend the entire trilogy For reviews or to see my favourite uotes from this book check out my blog at This book is seriously packed with action It was a really enjoyable and interesting book to read and it seamlessly follows the first book interest little confusion However the one thing I found was that though I loved reading it I often found that I had trouble recalling what had actually happened in THE BESTSELLING EPIC OF THE GLORY AND THE GRANDEUR INTRIGUES AND PASSIONS OF ANCIENT GREECEAND THE WARRIOR KING WHOSE CONUESTS BUILT AN ETERNAL LEGEND ALEXANDER Volume II THE SANDS OF AMMONA thousand years after Agamemnon fought the Trojan War Alexander the king of Macedonia and escendant of Achilles follows in the footsteps of Greek legend He has gathered a mighty force to libe. ,

Revious chapters just because so much is going on in this book There are so many characters places and things going on that I constantly found myself flicking back to figure out what was going onThe authors writing style makes you feel like you re actually reading an ancient epic and I loved that there are other POV s involved not just Alexander s For example I loved the character This one was much better than the first It had action it and many interesting events I especially enjoyed the part where he untied the knot in King Midas s chariot I loved picturing him in Achilles Armor The fight against Darius was well rafted and the bit with his leg where he went right into the heat of the battle was really well Academic Motherhood: How Faculty Manage Work and Family done Memnon made an excellent character focus in this novel I just think it was much better than the first and now I am ready to move onto the third Manfredi continues to shine stronglyepicting Alexander in his rise as a somewhat conflicted young man well on his way to conuering the known world The Alcohol Fuel: A Guide to Making and Using Ethanol as a Renewable Fuel details concerning Memnon the commander of the Persian army were uite nice and really fleshed things out for me I particularly liked the way the authorealt with the issue of the Gordian knot showing Alexander s lack of patience for which he was uite well known This trilogy Uprising Emerge Series doesn t really stand out that much as Manfredi is not taking a lot of liberties but I suppose that s a good thing Additionally his balance of the events is admirable as weo not feel particularly bogged own when the events slow Alexander s convalescence before Issus the winter in central Anatolia the siege of Tyre Additionally in reading these books fairly intensively
