    Amazing Grace tells the story of the remarkable life of the British abolitionist William Wilberforce (1759-1833). This accessible biography chronicles Wilberforce's extraordinary role as a human rights activist, cultural reformer, and member of Parliament. At the center of this heroic life was a passionate 20-year fight to abolish the British slave trade, a battle Wilberforce won in 1807, as well as efforts to abolish slavery itself in the British colonies.

    Greece in the age of heroes. Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to the kingdom of Phthia to be raised in the shadow of King Peleus and his golden son, Achilles. “The best of all the Greeks”—strong, beautiful, and the child of a goddess—Achilles is everything the shamed Patroclus is not. Yet despite their differences, the boys become steadfast companions. Their bond deepens as they grow into young men and become skilled in the arts of war and medicine—much to the displeasure and the fury of Achilles’ mother, Thetis, a cruel sea goddess with a hatred of mortals.

    Story
    What disappointed you about The Song of Achilles?

    This book wasn't my style. There is homosexual sex described in detail. Sex scenes in such detail are not to my liking, gay or straight.


    Has The Song of Achilles turned you off from other books in this genre?

    This is not my style of story. I wouldn't have even tried it if I had known. I don't really go in for explicit sex in any story, so its inclusion in several scenes made me stop listening before the end.


    What about Frazer Douglas’s performance did you like?

    His voices and accent were good.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It could have been good. It wasn't a bad story at the start. Others may really enjoy it.
