5+++++++++++++++++ of 5 Stars

What did you think of the book?Ahh~ The Song of Achilles! Or should I say “The book that will surely be the death of me?”

Let me first start out by saying: I love that Patroclus told the story this time. I loved seeing their shared history through his eyes: their faults, their triumphs, their life, and their love. I also want to expressively proclaim that this story is a romance, and WHAT A ROMANCE!

I always liked to think of their story and love, as the—ehem—egalitarian expression of homosexual love, where they were both of close age and simply loved one another: as friends, as companions, as lovers, and eventually as soulmates. THIS BOOK ANSWERS ALL MY BESEECHMENTS AND TORMENTED PRAYERS!!

Sorry for the unexpected hiatus

I’m still recovering from the upset to my daily life which caused it (that, and of course, all the added horrors it caused which spilled into my personal life, as well… Ughhh…)

We’ll be back to proper schedule by the end of the week (HOPEFULLY) after all this craziness is… well, not quite over with, but at least a little less overwhelming. For now, have a new favourite quote from a brand new “FAVOURITE, FAVOURITE, EXTREME FAVOURITE WHY DID IT TAKE ME THIS LONG TO READ THIS?!” book 🙂

“When he died, all things soft and beautiful and bright would be buried with him.”
― Achilles (Madeline Miller, The Song of Achilles)

I’ll be reviewing and spazzing over it next week. Stay tuned!
