971 thought on “The Song of Achilles: A Novel

  1. I have never read the Iliad, and I thought it might be fun to delve into a modern treatment of the story This book had so many great reviews that it seemed worth buying However, I stopped reading the novel when I was about 30% of the way through By this time it became clear that the author was going to make the romance between Patroclus and Achilles the centerpiece of the book For instance as teens, Achilles and Patroclus spend two or three years in the wilderness with a centaur who is supposed [...]


  2. Thought i was buying a new conception of a Homeric myth Instead I found myself muddling through a homoerotic romance novel about a weakling, a jock and an overbearing mother Yeah some mythological reference is tossed in the salad but I quit this self indulgence about a third of the way through Don t be fooled by the title Positive reviews are a mystery to me I got nothing against love stores whoever the lovers are but I don t enjoy romance novels, historic, contemporary or pseudo mythological, e [...]


  3. I thought the writing and wording was very fanciful and evocative The story seem very interesting and there was a lot of build up Yet, I think I was misled because the story is really about gay love Which is fine, but I wish this was made obvious in the reviews I guess I was expecting something else but after reading through the first seven chapters, I knew I didn t want to continue any because I thought the subject matter should have been made clear Most of the reviews make it about a story tha [...]


  4. Starting this book I was at a strong 3.5 stars, then it bumped up to 4, and then the end had me in such a mess that it suddenly became 5 A miracle this is.The story and plot revolves around the Trojan war and the moments before and after where Patroclus meets Achilles and laters waits for him The flow is actually quite gentle, even during the war fighting I had expected action and heart racing moments, and that is maybe why I did not rush into a higher rating.However, even though I had a feeling [...]


  5. For better or for worse, the Homeric epics are a bedrock part of the Western literary canon Madeline Miller s The Song of Achilles looks at The Iliad from a fresh perspective that of Patroclus, Achilles closest companion Since this is a retelling of a classic story a genre to which I am predisposed , we already know how it s going to play out Agamemnon will steal a slave girl claimed by Achilles, leading to the hero refusing to fight for the Greeks, leading to Patroclus donning his armor and bei [...]


  6. I m going to assume that you re familiar with the Iliad because it s been out a while, so, Spoilers, I guess The Song of Achilles is a retelling, one which takes the myth and runs with it Here Achilles really is the son of a sea nymph, he is trained by a centaur, and gods play their part in the lives of man.I used to know my Classics a lot better that I do now Roger Lancelyn Green s books were a staple of my childhood library so this was a book which unfolded for me I remembered each plot point [...]


  7. OMG, I held my breath for the second half of this book My memory of the events was enough to know what had to happen, but that simply doesn t spoil a thing.She s managed to take everything we know of the story from the existing texts and build a world that is thoroughly absorbing and beautiful It s a story of epic soul binding love, so beautifully rendered.I really enjoyed how there was no modern lens put onto the story She just tells it Ideas and concepts that mean something to us would have be [...]
