At least, I've finished to read it, differently from The Song of Achilles, but it is slower than it. There's no character developing and it is kind of boring.

This was a really good novel. I came upon it having a very superficial understanding of what gods did or who was who, or the family ties among the gods and I never once got lost with the characters in the novel. Miller does a good job of clarifying and guiding the reader to come to an understanding of lineage, characteristics, etc. among the gods. The story moves along smoothly and the characters grow beautifully throughout the novel.
