Kazantzakis' treatment of this Greek hero's life nicely chronicles the major events and pivotal characters in Alexanders life. This narrative, in it's novel format is seasoned in a way that make it very easy to digest and enjoyable to read.
One certainly comes away with a clear impression of the extraordinary presence and the absolute force of nature embodied in Alexander's short 32 years of life. His passion and determination to unite are revealed in this telling as well as his insatiable desire to conquer and rule. One can't help but be exhilarated by his thirst for adventure and mystified by his constant straddling of the line between god and mortal.
