Forlagets beskrivelse

“At once a scholar’s homage to The Iliad and startlingly original work of art by an incredibly talented new novelist….A book I could not put down.”
—Ann Patchett

“Mary Renault lives again!” declares Emma Donoghue, author of Room, referring to The Song of Achilles, Madeline Miller’s thrilling, profoundly moving, and utterly unique retelling of the legend of Achilles and the Trojan War. A tale of gods, kings, immortal fame, and the human heart, The Song of Achilles is a dazzling literary feat that brilliantly reimagines Homer’s enduring masterwork, The Iliad. An action-packed adventure, an epic love story, a marvelously conceived and executed page-turner, Miller’s monumental debut novel has already earned resounding acclaim from some of contemporary fiction’s brightest lights—and fans of Mary Renault, Bernard Cornwell, Steven Pressfield, and Colleen McCullough’s Masters of Rome series will delight in this unforgettable journey back to ancient Greece in the Age of Heroes.

Denne bog er blevet min aboslut ynglings bog! jeg kan varmt anbefale den til alle!
hvis man er på udgik efter at læse bøger med et godt LGBT+ reprecentation så er det her man skal kigge, Achilles og Patroclus er begge to elskværdige karaktere og man bliver forelsket i deres kærlighed og dem som personer! 

Med denne historie sad jeg med mange følelser! jeg blev både sur, frustreet, kærlig, glad og ulykkelig. Begynde at læse bogen  kl  20:00 og var færdig kl 02:00, det er en bog på 352 sider og den er hurtigt læst, da jeg sad der klokken 2 om natten med en pude presset imod mit ansigt så mine forældre ikke skulle høre mig tud brøle og et ønske om 500 sider mere. 

Hvis du har overvejet at læse denne bog, GØR DET.

The Song of Achilles er bedre end oldtidskundskabstimer i gymnasiet, det lover jeg!

Jeg holder rigtig meget af denne bog, og jeg venter spændt på den dag, hvor den ikke står knivskarpt i mit hoved, så jeg kan læse og opleve den igen. Indtil videre er der gået et år, men jeg venter stadig spændt.

I went into this book not expecting much. I knew it was known as ’the gay Illiad”, but that didn’t explain anything. I only knew the basics about the Iliad and the story of Achilles. I must admit I didn't know who Patroclus was. I only knew the key players like Paris, Hector and of course Achilles. 

What pulled me in from the first page was Patroclus' voice. He sounds very gentle in his story telling, which must have been intentional on Miller's part. It makes the reader grasp Patroclus' character even without him 'introducing himself'. I also loved Achilles’ first introduction as ‘the son Patroclus was not.’ What Miller does best here, is the way she fleshes out characters in a really subtle way; in their dialogue, their gestures and reactions, the things they say, the things they don't say. This is how characterization should be done in every book.

The heart of this book is Patroclus and Achilles relationship. It started so fittingly as a friendship and evolved into something more once they both hit puberty. It means they're friends before they're lovers, which is apparent in every interaction between them. That makes their love that much richer. 

The Troyan war is a big part of this book, of course, and it keeps dawning on the reader that the carefree lives of Patroclus and Achilles on the mountain with Chiron (where the boys are learning everything from hunting to medicine) must come to an end in the most tragic way possible. And yet, even that is beautifully done. Even prior knowledge can't save the reader from the amount of emotion found in the last chapters. Miller doesn't hold back, and the book becomes better for it.

Miller recognizes that the real tragedy is not Achilles' and Patroclus' deaths, but the price of Achilles' fame. A huge thing in the book is Achilles' dream of becoming immortal and remembered through his actions in the war. It's the reason he participates in the first place, because he fears a life in which he is insignificant. At the end, he is remembered, but for the wrong things. He is remembered for his bloodthirst and wrath and the things he does in his grief instead of the things and people he loves and his great deeds.

All in all, a great book and I highly recommend it if any of the things I just mentioned is appealing to you.
