Beschreibung

A beautiful new limited edition paperback of The Song of Achilles, published as part of the Bloomsbury Modern Classics list

The god touches his finger to the arrow's fletching. Then he breathes, a puff of air - as if to send dandelions flying, to push toy boats over water. And the arrow flies, straight and silent, in a curving, downward arc towards Achilles' back.

Greece in the age of heroes. Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to the court of King Peleus and his perfect son Achilles. Despite their differences, the boys develop a tender friendship, a bond which blossoms into something deeper as they grow into young men.

But when Helen of Sparta is kidnapped, Achilles is dispatched to distant Troy to fulfil his destiny. Torn between love and fear for his friend, Patroclus follows, little knowing that the years that follow will test everything they hold dear.

I loved it J.K. Rowling

Madeline Miller knows what she is writing about, but nevertheless excels at adding her own fictional element to the myth without it feeling forced.

Bewertet: Einband: Taschenbuch

Das Leben des Achilles wird hier aus Sicht seines Gefährten Patroclus erzählt. Bildgewaltig und doch liebevoll beschrieben wird die bekannte Geschichte des Trojanischen Krieges widergegeben. Dabei werden Beweggründe aufgezeigt und Zusammenhänge verdeutlicht. Einige der größten Helden der Geschichte sind plötzlich zum Greifen nah!

Amazing

This take on the story of Achilles and Patroclus is done beautifully and full of passion, fear, love and every other emotion. The story is told by Patroclus and follows him as the companion of Achilles and the hardships they face throughout their lives. I recommend this to anyone who loves love stories and/or Greek mythology. ... This take on the story of Achilles and Patroclus is done beautifully and full of passion, fear, love and every other emotion. The story is told by Patroclus and follows him as the companion of Achilles and the hardships they face throughout their lives. I recommend this to anyone who loves love stories and/or Greek mythology. I'd advice you to keep tissues around because this is one of the five books that made me cry. Madeline Miller is talented writer and her writing style is something I haven't seen before. Will definitely read her other books too.
