This is the story of two remarkable men, one of whom conquered empires with apparent ease and one of whom struggled with the day-to-day problems of a small provincial town. The first was Alexander the Great, the second, Euxenus, philosopher and tutor to the young Alexander. It is the story of two men whose paths crossed only briefly, but whose encounter changed both their lives—and the course of history.

  1. Despite it's title the book is not about Alexander, in fact he is only a secondary character. The book emphasizes on an Athenian who is kind of an impostor. He pretends to be a seer of sorts but he is so good at convinsing people that he has "conections" to the other world that Olympias and Philip enlist him among other tutors to instruct Alexander.

    But that is only a small part of his life. For the most part this guy is a wonderer. Holt is extremely funny. There are points where I found myself laughing out loud. If you are looking for a humourous but still well written and researched historical fiction, then this is the book for you.
