This is the first book that I’ve ever finished in one day! And I’m glad I chose this book for my one day read, there wasn’t one moment that I was bored. I’ve seen other people say they thought certain parts of the book were pointless and I was so surprised when I read those reviews because I felt like every moment made me understand the characters even more and get a really good look into who they are and how they think, or handle situations. Patroclus has such a kind heart I felt like I wanted to protect him from everything. Madeline Miller did the Greek mythology genre right! I’m sure this book will become a re-read for me.

I truly, truly loved this book. There would be times where I'm reading it before bed, except when I actually have to go to sleep I can't put it down. I felt like I had to know what was going on, what would happen next. When I finished it, I literally let out an audible groan and confessed to my dad that sometimes I hate reading (as a joke of course but it may as well be true after reading this). I loved the way Greek mythology was played out here, and how I hated the antagonists and had nothing but love for Achilles and Patroclus. I didn't cry, as I thought I would, but that doesn't mean I wasn't still moved. I just want to read all over again and feel everything for the first time.
