The Song Of Achilles
Achilles and Patroclus
This Book is AMAZING. I read it over the Christmas break in two days which is insane for me and I'm still completely obsessed, I am literally shoving the book at everyone I know begging them to read it. This book looks at the relationship shared by Achilles and Patroclus and how they grow up together before the trojan war and during it. The relationship between Achilles and Patroclus is outstanding, but be weary as you will need a big box of tissues for the end chapters.
Anyway I really wanted to write something about the men in Greek mythology and I was trying to figure out which myth to chose when i stumbled on a movie called 'Alexander' with Jared Leto and fell completely in love with Alexander the great and Hephaistion. they compare themselves again and again to Achilles and Patroclus and therefore I've started writing a few chapters of a new novel I want to start thinking about called Patroclus' Return. I will post the first chapter ASAP And see what you all think
As Always Thanks So Much For Reading
