The Song of Achilles
I finally began my first book this afternoon, The Song of Achilles and found myself totally drawn into Miller's vision of Ancient Greece. A few hours later and I find Iam half-way through and enjoying it very much. I especially love the way in which she is tackling the presentation of gods and other mythical beings. There is no sense of her tryng to impose 21st Century sensibilities upon her setting: gods, goddesses and demi-gods just are. Expect to carry on and finish it tomorrow.
