The Song of Achilles retells The Iliad like you’ve never read it before… in a realistic account of history and fantasy…Madeline Miller’s knowledge of ancient Greek history and her affinity toward the classic myths intensifies the novel and heightens the experience for the reader. Seamlessly blurring the lines of reality and time, Achilles is an amazing, spellbinding page-turner that I couldn’t put down until I’d read it cover to cover, twice!”

Instinct Magazine, March 2012
