What’s with the omelets? What am I missing? Is one omelet the best? Who can eat five omelets? If stars are the equivalents to your omelets, this book rates a galaxy therefore a quiche? Something is amiss here. Madeline Miller has recreated these two men – Patroclus and Achilles – of the Trojan War as an unforgettable pair. Their love for each other stands in sharp relief to the madness sweeping the rest of their countrymen. Even knowing the events of the ten-year seige of Illium, there is a wonderful, desperate tenderness to the story as Ms. Miller tells it, embroidering it with an astounding tale of love that resounded perfectly with my own sense of the truth of these two men and what they shared.

Hi Tamulonis. Yes 5 Omelets is the best. We are the Friday Morning Bookclub and we think breakfast food…especially eggs and omelets! Check out our rating system under pages. I too loved the book and was surprised that several of our members not only did not enjoy the book, but did not even finish it. Guess that is what makes being in a book club interesting.

Hello Bright Susan and thank you for clarifying about the menu for the best meal of the day. In that case, The Song of Achilles rates 5 omelets with spinach, cheese, mushrooms and hot peppers. It is a beautiful book, in the tradition of Renault and of Rosemary Sutton. That said, Ms. Miller carves her own way, bravely and so beautifully. I am about to re-read it. Happy end of Summer.
