The Song of Achilles

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This was something else, and I enjoyed every layer and nuance. It adds depth, complexity, and a full range of human emotions to a previously known story (Achilles and the Trojan war). It was not at all what I expected, in the most rewarding sort of way.

Everything about the style and voice was so honest, that it took me back in time, to a place where honor is often valued above all else. I can’t wait to pick up and read Circe next. I hope it’s as worthwhile as this read.
