300 is a quiet tale about a lowly fisherman reluctantly called into battle to protect his wife's honor. No...wait...that isn't right. 300 is the story of the greatest warriors ever to set foot on this Earth and how they pushed back against overwhelming odds to protect the land that was rightfully theirs and protect their people. It is dark and bloody and gritty and shows how the great warriors of Sparta were molded into living weapons. Their bodies looking as hard as the land around them, they refused to bend to outside rule. It tells the tale of struggle and well...I won't give away the end to the two of you that actually haven't seen the movie, but it is truly an epic painted in blood from the history from which it comes from.
As you might be able to tell, I love the book. Loved it before the movie...loved it after...love it now. I cringe thinking about the sequel to it that Miller has got planned, but I am willing to take a look. Definitely take a look if you ever get the chance. You will be very glad you did.
Oh and before I run, a good buddy of mine, Justin Stewart won the give away from the Tradio last week. What did he win? Go back and look. How can you win? Just read and see when I am parting with my stuff. Till next time, imaginary readers.
