The Song of Achilles (Harper Collins)
Madeline Miller brings back to us the story of Achilles as it has never been told before! This modern retelling focuses on Achilles and Patroclus, and the close intense friendship between them. Miller writes in a prose style rather than writing like the poems of Homer, but the words are so poetic and smooth that even die-hard lovers of the classic tale are sure to love this read. I can’t wait to get myself a copy to read, but from the little bit I’ve read I know I won’t be able to put it down! After finals are over, this book is sure to be glued to my hands until it’s done. Stop by and take a look, tell me what you think!
