Life of St. Monica - F.A. Forbes - A Short Summary and Review

The Song of Achilles - Madeline Miller - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of The Song of Achilles:

Achilles and Patroclus, a love story, told in Troy.

My favorite Madeline Miller quote from the book:

"You can use a spear as a walking stick but that will not change its nature."

Questions to ponder while reading The Song of Achilles:

Have you ever read the Illiad?

What is mercy?

My review of The Song of Achilles:

True to the original storyline.

I struggled to put it down.

Mythology has the best stories.
