The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
The Song of Achilles

MadameO, January 30, 2013

Stunningly beautiful, Miller's language at times takes one's breath away. Iā€™m marveling at the infusion of love and tenderness into a story of war and mayhem and the interference of feckless gods. May be too much of a cuirass-ripper for some, but the humanity of the story overrode that for me.
