Patroclus, an awkward young prince, follows Achilles into war, little knowing that the years that follow will test everything they have learned, everything they hold dear. And that, before he is ready, he will be forced to surrender his friend to the hands of Fate. Set during the Trojan War.

I've always been fascinated by the battle of Troy. There are so many different ways to tell that story, yet this one is completely new to me. Rather than following Achilles, this one follows in the first-person from Patroclus point of view, digging into his complicated relationship with Achilles. While the movie Troy does a great job of telling many things, it portrays Achilles much differently than Homer does in The Illiad. "The Song of Achilles" leans closer to Homers telling, shedding light on the secret affairs, dark prophecies and battle of egos. ( )

Non c’è nulla di peggio di leggere un libro sapendo già come andrà a finire. Ricordo ancora quando in prima liceo studiavamo l’Iliade ed io adoravo Achille e Patroclo, ma la mia insegnante di epica continuava a dire che “non c’era nulla tra di loro”. Inutile dire che ho amato il libro così come ho amato l’Iliade, ed ho pure pianto un sacco negli ultimi capitoli. Assolutamente fantastico, mi piacerebbe moltissimo poterlo leggere nuovamente come se fosse la prima volta, ma sta volta vorrei non sapere nulla dell’Iliade ne dei suoi tragici personaggi. Lo consiglio tantissimo ( )

Starts out rather great, and stays good as long as it's a love story between Achilles and Patroclus, but it's only downhilll as soon as the Trojan war starts, since the author has absolutely no ability to describe battle scenes or war in general, apart from clichés. ( )

I honestly didn't know what to expect with this novel. I had just passively listened to a podcast about the Trojan War and remembered very little about Achilles. My first surprise was the narrator. I expected a 3rd or 1st person telling. Well, it was first person, but it was from Patroclus's point of view. I was then trying to remember if he was mentioned in that before mentioned podcast. Therefore, I was intrigued and surprised from the beginning of the novel.

Patroclus begins the story in childhood. As a child who doesn't fit in, Patroclus one day finds himself accidentally killing a boy and then subsequently disowned and sent to King Peleus. Achilles, the perfect son of Peleus, possesses confidence that Patroclus can't even imagine. Achilles doesn't second guess himself; he makes a decision and lives out his life without worry of judgement. He's never had a close friend although he's had many acquaintances, but he takes notice of Patroclus. They become almost instant friends to Patroclus's surprise.

As time passes, Achilles and Patroclus reveal secrets to each other and surprise people by their loyalty to one another. Achilles' mother fails to find this friendship worthy of her son and would rather they part. When separated for training, Patroclus runs until he finds Achilles who expected Patroclus to find him. They train together. Patroclus has no desire to fight after the death of the young boy but does desire to learn healing. Achilles is a natural fighter--the best ever. Through these late teenage years, they both discover their friendship extends to one of a loving relationship. They accept and understand each other, rarely losing their temper with the other.

Helen is taken and those who sought her hand in marriage are required to help get her back. Patroclus was one such suitor. He's kind of forgotten, but they need Achilles to win the war. A prophecy claims to know when Achilles will die, so he determines to avoid the preceding event to elongate his life. The ten years show Achilles to be as great a fighter as there's ever been, but eventually the war will end. As with all mythology, the ending can't be happy. Overall, I enjoyed watching their relationship grow as they became pawns in a war that really didn't have emotional appeal to them. Achilles enjoyed using his talents and Patroclus enjoyed healing, but they would have happily chosen different paths. Fate intervened. Imagine that in mythology! ( )

I was hoping for historical fiction. This is more homosexual erotica and that's not my thing. ( )

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.
