    "I'm fascinated when an author writes a story that is not her real line of work, McCullough is a neuropathologist, but has spiritual connections to ancient Greece. This telling of the Trojan war kept me captivated from start to end."

    "I feel the solution is incomplete as it doesn't directly mention "Trojan War." It would be difficult to tell whether or not "Metamorphoses" is in fact related to the Trojan War. However, it does do a sufficient job at reviewing the Metamorphoses tales."
