    The Song of Achilles

    This book is a masterpiece. Miller draws us into the story, the relationships and their outcomes, exactly as the title says, like a song. The pacing reminds me of Duras' "Moderato Cantabile". So many writers have been fascinated by the fall of Troy from the Trojan perspective, but this looks at the long, drawn out destruction from the Greek side. The way Miler paints the love between Achilles and Patrocles binds us into their emotions. The skilful weaving of the human and the divine, richly enhances the narrative, as does the insight into the very human psychology of both gods and people.

    The Song Of Achilles

    I found this to be my favorite version of the story of Achilles... let the reader be warned it does have some homosexuality in it but nothing prolific.... Its a very enchanting story with lots of sentiment felt that only a good story of Greek Gods and mortals can tell... I highly recommend it...

    In all the books I have read, (which is a lot ) I have never found a book as captivating as this . The action packed ,fast pasted style of writing really leaves you wanting to read and read . The delicate love story of a Greek Demi god and his unlikely companion touches the heart and you do fall in love with the characters..... Splendid book with a tragic yet heroic ending which I found tear worthy .... A MUST READ

    Love comes in many different ways.

    An amazing story of love. It was a great read! Not what I expected at all. Truly a great surprise. The author has a great gift for settings and describing them.
