This was never the story of one woman, or two. It was the story of all of them. In the middle of the night, Creusa wakes to find her beloved Troy engulfed in flames. Ten seemingly endless years of brutal conflict between the Greeks and the Trojans are over, and the Greeks are victorious. Over the next few hours, the only life she has ever known will turn to ash. The devastating consequences of the fall of Troy stretch from Mount Olympus to Mount Ida, from the citadel of Troy to the distant Greek islands, and across oceans and sky in between. These are the stories of the women embroiled in that legendary war and its terrible aftermath, as well as the feud and the fatal decisions that started it all. Powerfully told from an all-female perspective, A Thousand Ships gives voices to the women, girls and goddesses who, for so long, have been silent.… (mehr)

Best book I have listened to this year (of the 25 titles I have read/listened to). I feel in another life I would have wanted to create this book as the classics and womens studies was my emphasis. Great narration! Wonderful characters full of depth. So great! ( )

I think this was more than 4 stars but while it did have a common thread it was more of a collection of short stories to me. I loved hearing more about the women of the Trojan war and their different voices. I especially loved the sarcasm in Penelope’s chapters. The author has a beautiful way of writing that I appreciated.

I know so little about Greek mythology. I listened to this book so I wasn’t able to study the different names. But I think I followed the story well. The book focuses on the women’s role in the Trojan War and the burdens they geared, including death. I enjoyed this book. ( )

I absolutely love this retelling of the Iliad/Odyssey epic (plus a few more bits from other places, like The Oresteia.)
We get the women’s points of view, which is refreshing. Achilles’ cruelty is brought out so that we can all look at it for what it is. I understand why Calypso and Circe are left out (that is, their points of view aren’t addressed) but I would have liked to have seen that. Nevertheless this is a truly fascinating account, told chronologically. Many women on both sides (and the supernatural side as well, with goddesses and nymphs) are represented, and they are clearly delineated. Oddly the most intriguing story is that of Eris’s the goddess of discord. But they’re all compelling.
This book has brought me completely out of the reading slump that had me reading mystery after mystery after mystery, because I couldn’t concentrate on anything else. So there’s that. ( )

These are wonderful stories. The women, girls and goddesses of ancient Greece and Troy. Both moving and lighthearted, some of these stories touched me more than others. Penelope wrote letters to Odysseus retelling what she'd heard of his misadventures but with a slightly different perspective.. The Trojan women were a sorry group, waiting to hear their fate from the Greek victors. The goddesses are petulant and self-control and entertaining. There is plenty of blood and tears. ( )
