    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.

    Cariola says: "Didn't Expect to Like It, but I Was Swept Away"
    "Amazing Story and such beautiful prose"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Song of Achilles to be better than the print version?

    I really enjoyed the audio version. It helped with the Greek names, and hearing Madeline Miller's writing read aloud is astonishingly beautiful.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved how it humanized mythical characters. The story made you feel like you really understood and knew Achilles and Patroclus.
