Journal Entry 1 by redfox5 from Camberley, Surrey United Kingdom on Sunday, March 03, 2013
Book given to me by my sister Hayley and Graeme.

I've found some of Manfredi's other books to be quite dry and dull, so it was a pleasant surprise to find this book was the opposite. Alexander is a character you can get behind. His story is really interesting and engaging. I don't know anything about this period in history and I can't even get my head around how long ago it was. These nations were civilised years before the Brits. We were still running around like tribesmen and painting ourselves blue, my how far we've come.

I don't know how historically accurate this story was, sadly there is no historical note at the back of the book. But it's made me want to know more about that period in time. I think the story really stepped up when King Philip took a new wife. I didn't really understand how the marriage thing worked. But it made for page turning stuff. There were some parts where my eyes glazed over a little bit but I wouldn't let that put you off reading it :)

Happy Easter! This book was a total guess. I have no idea if you'll like it or not. I thought you might like it better than chick lit and it was yellow which is an easter colour....Hope it's okay!

Behind the all the legend there was a man .... I think that this book show us without complications how a man of this size and dignity begins .... also it remind us the importance of Alexander´s father Philip in the formation of the Alexander´s character.
