ÂMoviegoers intrigued by the character of Achilles and the drama and passion in the movie Troy are going to want to read or re-read the original,Â exclaims Henry Hutton, director of Lulu.comÂs online writing community. ÂThe edition weÂve put together is elegant on its own merits, but itÂs also a great showcase for the quality of LuluÂs print on demand books.Â
