The following is an honest review of A Thousand Ships by Natalie Haynes and my suggested age rating.
Summary of A Thousand Ships
A Thousand Ships tells the stories of each women whose life was affected by the Trojan War. We are able to see through their stories what their life was like leading up to, during, and after the Trojan War.

Review of A Thousand Ships
I picked this book up because I’ve been really interested in Greek mythology lately. Initially, for me at least, this book was not the easiest to read. Once I got the hang of the writing style I was able to enjoy it more. Although I have heard the story of the Trojan War countless times, I appreciated the perspective of the women who lived through it. It painted a picture of how women’s lives are affected by war and how they are treated as items to be claimed by the winning side. The strength and tenacity each of these women possessed was inspiring. Although it is a work of fiction, it shows what it takes to be a women who survives.
I gave this book 4/5 stars on Goodreads.
