I’ve not read this book, The Silence of the Girls, by Pat Barker, but it seems pretty intriguing – the story of the Trojan war told from the point of view of the women involved, and per the blurb, specially from the point of view of the Trojan queen, Briseis. It also comes pretty well recommended as a Washington Post Notable Book, shortlisted for the Costa Novel Award, a finalist for the Women’s Prize for Fiction, and one of the Best Books of the Year per NPR, The Economist, and the Financial Times. And it’s on sale today for $2.99 as part of the US Kindle Daily Deal.
