Today I finish to read an interesting book “Talos’ shield” written by Valerio Massimo Manfredi. If you like story and in particular the one of ancient Greece, this is the book for you. The author denotes a great knowledge of the Hellenic world and about the story of Sparta and Athens. A short description:

“Talos, the gammy, grew between Ilotes. shepherd between shepherds. Brithos, the intrepid, was raised to be a warrior, noble between nobles. Two brothers divided by the most cruel law of Sparta. But the fate drew up, lining up abreast, them, during the fight against Persian invaders. Athens and Sparta, the glorious victory of Maratona and heroic sacrifice at Thermopiles : the great story of Greeks highlights a splendid and sad familiar history. A romance of politic passions and affections, of courage and adventures. A book to live again time of gods and heroes.”
