Achilles is my favourite hero and I love different iterations of his story. This is by far one of the best. I cannot recommend it enough to everyone who loves fantasy, romance, Greek myths, heroes, epics, and Shakespearean style tragedies. This is not a book that should be missed by anyone. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by em07 from my favorite novel of the year i was not expecting to love this novel as much as i did. AND on top of all this the story is based on Greek myths and stories and is so accurately portrayed throughout the entire novel.
The moving, romantic nature of the narrative is nicely balanced with tales of heroism. The authors knowledge for the subject is exhibited expertly throughout the story. From rich descriptions of ancient Greek culture, the food and customs.
So if you like heroic stories with gods and wars this is for you. If you like love stories with a touch of the tragic then this is definitely for you. Most readers who enjoy historical fiction will find something to love about this book. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Taylor from A Favourite This has become one of my favourite books. The seamless writing, the heartwrenching love story, and the steady pace create a perfect novel. It is a must read and it is impossible not to adore. I read this book in the span of 24 hours, thats just how good it is.
The prose is absolutely poetic and beautiful, and the way the story unfolds is a really wonderful rendition of the greek hero Achilles and his loving relationship with his best friend and companion Patroclus.

Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Maryam from A wonderful take on Greek mythology It was a book that kept me on the edge of my seat.
If you're on the fence, add to cart now! I love stories about Greek mythology and this one was so well written. The love story was heartbreakingly beautiful.
The song of Achilles
Her world building and characters are very solid and real. Do not forget it. You can use a spear as a walking stick, but that will not change its nature. On the one hand he gave sound advice and knew exactly what he did and on the other hand he forced Achilles on his destined path. Of all the countless men that manipulated young Achilles, Odysseus probably was the worst, hiding behind the mask of a friend but ultimately pursuing his own goals. Very clever indeed! Your war prizes are hostage, placed in my care until you offer your obedience and submission.
Let us start with that girl. Briseis, is her name? She will do as a penance for the girl you have forced me to return. Such an unfair and dishonourable numpty!!!
I hate him and all his actions! I mean what kind of father would trade his daughter away and then kill her?! His own flesh and blood! Those moments at the end and the tense situation between Achilles and him had me at the edge of my seat and all I wanted to do was to scream at the injustice that took place in front of me!!! Such a stubborn and self-righteous fool!!
He should have listened to Achilles but he was too proud to. Enough said! Thetis: Another person that landed on my shit list!
I mean I understand that she was Achilles mother and only wanted the best for her son, but it was more than just obvious that the best was Patroclus and I hated her for always trying to drive a wedge between them! I remembered the heat of him against my skin. I loved their relationship!
They were so gentle and adorable and no matter what happened and no matter how many obstacles were in their way they always managed to find back to each other! They had confidence in each other and they supported each other regardless of the consequences. THIS was the real deal!!! A connection so deep that no one could destroy it, a love so strong that it cast aside all obstacles, their trust so deep that they could talk about everything!!! Boy, I could gush about this relationship at eye level for eternity and still would never get tired of it!
I think in the end their unconditional love for each other was the only thing that was able to break them and it eventually did. How it did! The way Achilles grieved!!!
It broke my freaking heart!!! It was like a punch in the gut! I know first-hand how much this hurts, how painful it is to lose a person you love so much, and boy did it trigger my emotions.
They were so beautiful together… so, so, so damn beautiful.
I did not mind any more, that I lost when we raced and I lost when we swam out to the rocks and I lost when we tossed spears or skipped stones. For who can be ashamed to lose to such beauty? It was enough to watch him win, to see the soles of his feet flashing as they kicked up sand, or the rise and fall of his shoulders as he pulled through the salt.
It was enough. He has looked at me a thousand times, but there is something different in this gaze, an intensity I do not know. My mouth is dry, and I can hear the sound of my throat as I swallow.
He watches me.Haven't read something so moving in awhile. Photograph: Nina Subin If you were looking to retell the story of one of the great lovers in Greek myth, you could choose Paris, whose love or lust for Helen launched a thousand ships against his city of Troy, and wiped it from the map.
And it was no decoration: I love tasteful, heartfelt romances. Without meaning to, I stepped back. Like Comment Share. Patroclus joins him in going to Troy. I obeyed, though I saw no difference between the purple with gold or crimson with gold.
