“I will never leave him. It will be this, always, for as long as he will let me.”
Circe was one of the best books I read this year, and I knew I had to pick up The Song of Achilles. Miller is an incredible writer – she has a way of turning words into something beautiful and heartbreaking and hopeful at the same time.
Patroclus is a wonderful narrator. I felt bad from him from the beginning – a disappointment to his father, his involvement in a fatal accident results in his banishment. He meets Achilles and the two become fast friends.
This is easily one of the most romantic, most beautiful books I’ve ever read. I cannot wait to see what Miller writes next.
