Review of The Song of Achilles

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a hero? To have your name sung by bards for centuries to come? To be remembered as one of the greatest warriors of all time? Madeline Miller?s The Song of Achilles takes us on a journey through the eyes of Patroclus, a young prince who is exiled to Phthia after accidentally killing another boy. There he meets Achilles, the son of King Peleus and the sea nymph Thetis. The two boys quickly become inseparable friends and eventually lovers.

Miller?s writing is both poetic and powerful. She transports us back to ancient Greece and immerses us in a world of gods and heroes. Her descriptions of battles are visceral and intense, making us feel as if we are right there on the battlefield with Achilles and Patroclus.

But at its heart, The Song of Achilles is a love story. It?s a story about two young men who find love in a world that doesn?t accept them. It?s about their struggles to be together in a time when homosexuality was not only frowned upon but punishable by death.

If you?re looking for a book that will make you laugh, cry, and feel all the emotions in between, then The Song of Achilles is the book for you. It?s a beautifully written novel that will stay with you long after you?ve turned the last page.
