Book Review: The Honourable Thief by Meaghan Wilson Anastasios - Reviewed by Ronnie293 (17 Aug 2018)
Move over Indiana Jones.
Dr Benedict Hitchens renowned archaeologist’s life ambition is to find the final resting place of Achilles and prove his theory that Achilles was a real person. Ben is tall, blond with rakish good looks. Hearts will be broken on his journey.
I dare you not to fall for this broken ant-hero! I know I did.
Wherever Ben goes trouble soon follows and at times even his credibility starts to be questioned leaving his career in tatters. Ben is forever searching for the next big discovery. He makes some bad decisions and runs with his heart rather than his head.
The story moves around from 1955 back to 1938, pre war Greece with the threat of war looming over the quiet Greek island, with flashback of the years between. This style of narration may be off putting to some although as the story progresses the date changes become easier to adapt to.
This moderately paced adventure drama lends itself to both the Historical Fiction genre with the inclusion of the effects of war and the German invasion on the small Greek island, with Ben joining the Resistance Movement, and the tumultuous history between Turkey and Greece and Contemporary Fiction genre as Anastasios describes the people, their way of life and the vivid village street celebrations and feasts. Don’t pass this up just because you don’t read historical fiction.
I would love to see this on the big screen it has all the elements of a Hollywood hit.
The Honourable Thief is an epic adventure of love and loss, greed and cunning, obsession and danger.
The story although fictional was inspired by real events. *I received a free copy from the publisher.
