      De todas las novelas que he leido sobre el tema, esta es la peor de todas pero con diferencia. Helena está fuera de lugar y más que una zorra (como dice el titulo, no yo)parece una ninfomana bipolar.Y además todo va tan rapido que ni siquiera da tiempo a profundizar sobre la historia o los personajes.Nada, no he tenido mucha suerte con las historias de Troya ultimamente.Aviso de Spoiler:¿De verdad Hector y Helena? En que mundo paralelo, iba a preferir el noble y heroico Hector a Helena que a [...]

      Another terrible The Iliad retelling I've had the misfortune to read in my hopeful wish that there might, just might be one that's good if not on par with Homer

    3. Красимира on said:

      Ще започна с хубавото - страхотната идея да се разкаже троянската война през погледа на жената, която става причина за нея. С удоволствие бих прочела такава история. За жалост не точно тази. След малко ще обясня защо. Другото положително, което искам да отбележа, е стилът на а [...]

      I'm always a sucker for anything Trojan War related, so when I saw this, I was expecting some sort of revisionist feminist take on it, a la Margaret Attwood's brilliant "Penelopiad" of a few years back.No such luck. Francesca Petrizzo apparently believes that the big problems with the Trojan War story were as follows:1) The plot made sense.2) Helen didn't sleep with enough hot guys.3) Helen was insufficiently self-pitying.Not for this book the many, many suitors, or the oath they swear to each o [...]

    5. Yasei on said:

      Desde el momento en que lei la reseña, supe que me iba a resultar interesante leer la historia de uno de los personajes mas emblematicos de Esparta/Troya contado desde su punto de vista y no desde los hombres que la romantizaron, la usar0n como objeto de intercambio o excusa. Sabia que iba a ser diferente, ni bueno ni malo asi que me arriesgue. No estoy desilucionada en absoluto, la historia esta bellisimamente narrada y aunque es cierto que quizas faltan descripciones y aclaraciones, el estilo [...]

    6. Gemma on said:

      Nonostante la giovanissima età della scrittrice, a mio parere è scritto in modo incantevole. Non avevo mai letto nulla sulla guerra di Troia dal punto di vista di Elena e questa versione mi ha piacevolmente sorpresa :)

    7. Helena on said:

      I liked it, a bit different point of view, but really nice book :)

    8. Larissa Saravia on said:

      Muy buena novela, me gustó mucho. Tanto la forma en la que esta escrita, como la historia, me encantaron y ese final perfecto.

    9. Estelle Velde on said:

      Si j’ai été attirée par ce livre, c’est parce qu’il raconte l’histoire d’Hélène de Troie. Dans mon enfance, j’étais passionnée par la mythologie, qu’elle soit grecque ou égyptienne. Et c’est donc pour cela que j’ai commencé la lecture de ce livre.Si vous avez vu le film “Troie“, sachez que le mythe d’Hélène est complètement revisité. Les références de l’auteure, Francesca Petrizzo, sont nombreuses et on en vient vraiment à se questionner sur le personnag [...]

    10. Cristina Scipioni on said:

      Este libro fue una reciente compra, y la portada me llamó mucho la atención. Aunque no es la misma que muestra . El hecho de que Helena de Troya cuente su historia es por sí una idea incitante y atrayente, y que el libro sea tan corto ayuda a crecer el optimismo. Sin embargo, desde las primeras páginas el libro se mostró muy confuso. La autora, a pesar de tener una bonita y densa escritura, fue muy ambigua en muchos aspectos y muy carente de descripción en otros importantes para la histori [...]

    11. Angie on said:

      This was a telling of the illiad from Helen's point of view. It was quite interesting to read the story this way. The people were different to how I've read before. It was good though.All Helen seemed to have going for her was her beauty and that just never seemed to be enough. She drifted from one one man to another with no enjoyment taken in anything. Not much was the real story but that didn't take away how much I liked the book. I liked how when she finally married menelaus the descriptions [...]

    12. Livia Ellis on said:

      Proof that people who know anything about the Spartans shouldn't read fictionalised accounts of ancient Sparta. At the end of chapter 21 the author writes about a ship flying black flags to bring news of the death of a king. Sparta is landlocked in the mountains. Not on the sea. Sigh. Did Petrizzo even bother looking at a map? Her version of hector is just inexcusable. The love story between Hector and Andromache just should not be messed about with. Hector's nobility and righteousness is what m [...]

    13. Stephanie on said:

      I would really give this book a 2.5 instead of just a 2. At times I was annoyed with the writing style but I managed to charge through it. However the author is 19, so maybe that had an effect (either way publishing at age 19 is nothing to sneeze at). I have always been interested in this time period which is the only reason why I picked up the book (I really hate the title!). If you are looking for a great read on Helen of Troy then look forwhich I enjoyed immensely. This book just didn't cut i [...]

      FINITO! Più di una volta, questo coso ha rischiato di essere buttato fuori dalla finestra ù.ù Allora vi faccio un riassunto veloce: (view spoiler)[1. Diomede, il suo promesso sposo. 2. Achille, amante da cui ha avuto una figlia e ucciderà Ettore. 3. Menelao, colui che la sposa e crede che sua figlia sia sua. 4. Paride, amante che l'aiuta a fuggire. Poi la chiama cagna. 5. Ettore, fratello di Paride ma anche il suo ultimo Aaaaaamore. (hide spoiler)]Elena ha amato tutti loro. FINE.

    15. Karla on said:

      Me atrajó el título y la portada por lo que decidí leer este libro. La historia contada por parte de la mismísima Helena. No me encanto, sin embargo me gusta la forma de escribir de la autora, es su primer novela y tenía 19 años cuando la escribió, por lo que me gustaría leer algo más reciente de ella. Me gusta su forma de escribir tan dulce y suave me envuelvo en sus palabras.

    16. Roxx on said:

      Avevo già letto Nel sangue e mi aspettavo un romanzo indimenticabile. Lo è. E merita tutti i riconoscimenti ottenuti all'estero. La scrittrice si rivela abile nel descrivere situazioni e personaggi, con un linguaggio particolare, forte, inimitabile.

    17. Tara Chevrestt on said:

      All telling + no showing = not for me. Also confused me to no end. From Diomedes to Achilles to Menelaus what's the deal? I think something was lost in the translation cause I couldn't figure out what was wrong with the last man

    18. Petra on said:

      This was very intense book and I liked writing style but characterization of many characters didn't work for me. Maybe if I didn't read the original first, I would like this book better. There was just too much made up stuffs

    19. Alejandra Reyes López on said:

      Una gran re escritura del mito, puesta en voz de la mujer causante de la guerra contra Troya. Excelente la forma en la que describe la melancolía de Helena que al final termina con un suceso tragicamente poético.

    20. Pau on said:

      Este libro no es para nada lo que esperaba. La sinopsis es muy engañosa. Y me resulto realmente chocante. Esperaba algo más histórico y revelador sobre la figura de Helena de Troya. Pero fue exactamente lo contrario a lo que dice la sinopsis.

    21. Ni Ramírez on said:

      No fue lo que esperaba, sin embargo no está mal, lee mi reseña en avedelibrevuelo/20

    22. Erika on said:

      • Gelezen in het Nederlands.• Fysiek boek.• 2.0/5Niet uitgelezen. Kwam er maar niet in.

    23. Celeste on said:

      Hay libros que tienen títulos "a no lugar", pero éste es sin duda el título menos honroso a la historia. Es exactamente lo que le falta, memorias de una zorra.

    24. Carmen on said:

      3.5Tengo sentimientos encontrados con la forma de escribir de la autora. Me gusta pero muchas veces me ha faltado algo.

    25. Ana Rodriguez on said:

      recomendacion; leelo despacio y sin apuros de otra manera no te gustara.
