    1 thought on “Requiem For Athens”

    1. I received a copy from the author in exchange for an unbiased review. Have you ever wondered what it was like in the time of ancient Greece? Not just a bullet-point presentation of facts, but what possibly drove some of history's great events? David Alkek explores the time of Alexander the Great in such a fashion, giving an overview of the lives of great philosophers such as Aristotle; great artists like Phidias. Although historical fiction, all events within REQUIEM FOR ATHENS seem plausible. I [...]

    2. I managed to trudge my way through this novel, though just barely. What could have been an exciting and interesting story is bogged down by the author’s so much telling, rather than showing. All the research he did is evident, and quite impressive, but too often all that information inundates the story. What a good editing could have done!Moreover, none of the characters held my attention, even Alexander the Great, who is an interest of mine. Again, the telling instead of showing kept the char [...]

    3. I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review. Right from the start I knew I was going to like it because of the historical subject matter. I have always been interested in history especially this particular area and time period.I enjoyed how the story started off with Phidias in Athens, then followed him throughout many adventures with Alexander, until finally coming full circle with Phidias back in Athens. Throughout the book I was finding that most of the poli [...]

    4. It's obvious to this reader that Dr. Alkek has thoroughly researched his novel, and there's much interesting material contained in the text for those who are interested in a Greece which is simultaneously spreading her culture throughout the known world while destroying herself at home. What's missing in this book is a strong lead character and a compelling plot to weave that research into a cohesive whole.Requiem For Athens documents social and political life in Athens, as well as the schools o [...]

    5. This was a 3.5 star read for me, but rounding up to 4.There was a series of Victorian children's books, Peeps at Many Lands. (If you're interested, there are several available for free on Project Gutenberg.) They were aimed at children—or their parents—who were seeking educational matter about other countries or periods in history, but told as a story to keep it interesting. I've worked on bits and pieces of some of them at Distributed Proofreaders, and they're fun books.Requiem for Athens k [...]

    6. **I received this book for free from the author in exchange for my honest opinion**I am in love with ancient Greece and Rome, so it was extra exciting to read this book for me. Alkek really got into detail about what went on in the average Athenian’s life, including aspects which I assume a lot of authors would shy away from. While some may think that this makes the novel a little too risqué at parts, I think it adds to the book. How can you accurately depict Athens during this time period if [...]

    7. Dr Alkek kindly provided the copy of the book for this review, he even signed it. Thanks again.Let me start by saying that I enjoyed Requiem for Athens, it is a look at a fascinating and important period of the history of the west through a fictional lens. However, if you have even taken a fiction writing course, one of the things they hammer into you is "show not tell", this book contains a lot of telling. Information that would have been better conveyed through character dialog or other in set [...]

    8. Author requested review in exchange for novelThis is a compelling novel set during the time of Aristotle and Alexander. I found myself marveling at the parallels to today. I found myself substituting Democrats and Republicans into the story! The story was very well researched and quite believable. The main character, Phidias, was a philosopher who studied with Aristotle and eventually travelled the world with Alexander as he conquered new territory. I am most impressed with Dr. Alkek's research [...]

    9. So the first few pages (24 or more) were of Phidias and his past. They explained what he went through to become a teacher for Plato's Academy. Most of the books was on politics and war which I don't really mind but politics drives me mad. It was well written though and I enjoyed the book immensely!His (Phidias) death was heart-breaking and I cried through it. What can I say? I'm a romantic. The synopsis is pretty straight forward but I hope I did the book justice all the same. It was very intere [...]

    10. REALLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK. IT IS ABOUT THE GREATEST GREEK PHILOSOPHERS AND POLITICS. THERE IS A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING IN THIS BOOK. FROM SEX, LOVE, WAR, POLITICS, HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY. IT IS A HARD BOOK TO PUT DOWN. REALLY ENJOYED READING A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE ON THE GREEKS.
