I feel very meh about this. This book is very hyped so don't know what I expected. The characters are not very well developed. The narrator is basically a f-boy for Achilles and has little personality. The writing is quite flowery, which is fine. And the narrator of the audiobook was very good... So that's something. It was fine, but didn't do much overall. It gets some hype because it is gay I guess which is fine.
