    A tale of a wooden horse called Troy

    Reeks of gore and highly strung Greek gods who disembowels their disobedient followers. Walks you too close to the movie 'Troy', sans, the wooden horse.

    An enchanting tale of love and war.

    Couldn’t put it down! Gripping and perfectly paced, I was there with Patroclus and Achilles sharing their adventures, feeling their love and pain. The narrative brings every aspect of Ancient Greece to life. Circe was excellent too!

    Inventive twist to history.

    I enjoyed the character development of the book as well as the way it was written. Interesting throughout. If you like historical fiction then you would probably like this book.

    Beautiful, beautiful book

    This stunning book transports you back to ancient Greece with such vividness that you'll swear Madeline Miller actually lived then and there. A wonderful take on an age-old Greek tragedy, bringing these stories to a new generation. Highly recommend!

    The song of Achilles

    Interesting and engaging reworking of a story well known in its outline, but here seen anew through the eyes of Achilles young, male lover. The beauty and athleticism of Achilles are well brought out, as is his pride. Strong female characters, the second rank goddess and mother of Achilles, Thetis and captured slave-girl Brindeis flesh out the story, providing a counterpoint to the tales of battle and heroism. Highly recommended.
