It's not that this isn't a good book. It is obviously well written, but it wasn't written for me. I was never eager to pick it up, and a couple of times I actually put it down without inserting the bookmark, thinking I had had enough. The second time I did that, about half way through, I really had had enough. ( )

3.5 stars. This is definitely as sad as it's hyped up to be. Beautifully written and poignant. However, the last half of the book was a slog for me. Everything from Troy-onward is pretty bleak, and Achilles frankly is kind of a jerk. Patroclus deserved better. ( )

DNF because I couldn't really get into the story(wrong time for me to read this). It is well written and will probably try again sometime.

Beautiful and sad and poetic all at once, my heart ( )
  beanskays | May 14, 2024 |
**4.5 stars** This is such a gorgeously devastating story. The prose is so well done and descriptive. The retellings are familiar and informative at the same time. The love between the characters is so present and everlasting. I truly loved this book. ( )

That The Song of Achilles offers a different take on the epic story of Achilles and the Trojan War is not, in itself, anything particularly out of the ordinary. People have been putting their own spins on The Iliad from the instant Homer finished reciting it. What's startling about this sharply written, cleverly re-imagined, enormously promising debut novel from Madeline Miller is how fresh and moving her take on the tale is — how she has managed to bring Achilles and his companion Patroclus to life in our time without removing them from their own.
tilføjet af Shortride | RedigerUSA Today, Robert Bianco (Mar 12, 2012)
 
But in the case of Miller, who earned undergraduate and graduate degrees in classics at Brown, the epic reach exceeds her technical grasp. The result is a book that has the head of a young adult novel, the body of the “Iliad” and the hindquarters of Barbara Cartland.

I could recognize him by touch alone, by smell; I would know him blind, by the way his breaths came and his feet struck the earth.  I would know him in death, at the end of the world.
We were like gods at the dawning of the world, and our joy was so bright we could see nothing else but the other.
"That is — your friend?"

"Philtatos," Achilles replied, sharply. Most beloved.
