I have absolutely loved learning about Alexander the Great the last few weeks reading these novels and googling the history and referring back to my old notes from College. Alexander the Great seems really extraordinary. I think his life is really interesting.

He seems like a deeply flawed dramatic character and I would love to see more of that. Renault's story presents Alexander as near perfect so we don't see that dramatic self doubt but his background is a perfect fit for it. Abusive parents, a prophecy telling him he is a God, an obsessive need to be loved, and the need to conquer and see the world. Possibly as an excuse to stay away from his mother.
