I have made it to Chapter 8, but I feel thoroughly detached. I'm exhausted.
I just... can't.

And I really hoped to at least read it to the end... No such luck, alas.

So I flipped to the very end and it made me all sorts of achy - but no less thoroughly detached. Which, honestly, I'm not surprised. I think it's "trying to imitate the ancient style while speaking in first person" thing. It just does not work for me. ( )

Greek mythology & gay romance trope - very exciting to read.
I loved how the book makes on thing clear: love is never easy, but oftentimes that’s the price one is willing to pay.
Additionally the focus on the rape Society back then made me think and cry a lot - very good book! ( )

This book is just pain. Nothing but pain. But even saying that this book easily is now one of my favorites. It made me feel so many emotions. I cried so hard when reading the ending. Miller is easily one of my favorite authors, I will not hesitate to read any of her future books. Also reading this while listening to it is simply the best way to do it. It took the reading experience to a whole different level. I knew that this story was going to destroy me, but I never expected this to be how I felt. I highly recommend this for everyone with my full chest. I love this book and their story, and I will never forget them. ( )

A retelling of Achilles’ life as told by his best friend and lover, Patroclus.

I honestly don’t know what more I can say about this book that hasn’t already been said. It’s beautifully written and emotionally driven, and I loved reading it! ( )

Recensione sul blog: http://thereadingpal.blogspot.it/2018/04/recensione-175-song-of-achilles.html


In the huge hall, his
beauty shone like a flame, vital and bright, drawing my eye
against my will.


Attratta dal fatto che questo libro avrebbe dovuto raccontare la storia di Achille e Patroclo, e convinta dalle ottime recensioni, avevo messo questo romanzo in wishlist. Mi è stato regalato più di un anno fa, ma non era mai il momento giusto per leggerlo. Si vede che, inconsciamente, sapevo che sarebbe stato una delusione pazzesca.
Ho voluto continuare a leggere fino alla fine nella speranza che il libro migliorasse, che ci fosse un'illuminazione, un qualcosa che lo potesse salvare. E invece niente.
Patroclo viene esiliato per aver ucciso un altro ragazzo e finisce alla corte di Peleo, padre di Achille. Anche se a prima vista Achille e Patroclo non vanno d'accordo, col tempo nasce un'amicizia profonda che si tramuta in amore e, quando la Guerra di Troia scoppia, i due devono partire assieme agli altri e fare il proprio dovere. La prima parte è dedicata alla loro infanzia e crescita. Le ultime cento pagine riguardano la Guerra e seguono (più o meno male) il corso dell'Iliade.
Insomma, Madeline Miller ci racconta sì di Patroclo e Achille, ma lo fa da schifo.
Per prima cosa vorrei parlare dei personaggi, e del fatto che Patroclo viene declassato da guerriero nella guerra di Troia, che combatte contro Sarpedonte e affronta Ettore, a figura praticamente inetta ed effeminata che si trova a confrontarsi con Achille, macho perfetto e "dominante" della coppia. Ignorata la (tipica del tempo) bisessualità di entrambi, ignorata la relazione di Achille con Briseide (che diventa molto amica di Patroclo, blah blah), i personaggi dell'Iliade finiscono in un romanzetto m/m scritto male. Senza voler offendere i romanzi m/m, di cui anzi ce ne sono alcuni davvero belli. Ma questo non è in quella categoria.

His dusty feet scruffed against the flagstones as he ate. They
were not cracked and calloused as mine were, but pink and sweetly
brown beneath the dirt.


Ah, e ad ogni momento Patroclo descrive i piedi di Achille. La Miller l'ha fatto feticista? Mah. Insomma, posso capire il riferimento alla sua velocità, ma ogni volta che li descrive sembra un'ossessione...
Non parliamo poi di Teti, che viene demonizzata in modo assurdo e ingiustificato, in quanto nell'Iliade e nella mitologia la dea non è stronza (sì, stronza) come quella descritta in questo libro. Stranamente la Miller non ha rovinato Chirone, ma Odisseo sì. Insomma... coi personaggi non ci siamo proprio.
Parliamo della trama? Sarebbe stata anche interessante, a dire il vero, se non avesse rovinato sopratutto l'ultima parte (quella riguardante l'Iliade), se i personaggi non facessero così schifo, se fosse stato scritto in modo diverso. Il partire dalla loro infanzia e dalla nascita del loro rapporto, background che i Greci possedevano in modo orale o in altri poemi, è una cosa carina... se fatta bene. Ma la Miller è riuscita a rovinarla. Sigh.
Lo stile? Descrive, descrive, descrive, non mostra nulla. È Patroclo che ci racconta il loro passato, quando è ormai morto. Ma è uno stile troppo... alto... che mi sa di Madeline Miller, e non di Patroclo... Mi porta fuori dalla storia più di tutto il resto messo assieme.

I could recognize him by touch alone, by smell; I would know him blind,
by the way his breaths came and his feet struck the earth.
I would know him in death, at the end of the world.


Nel complesso è stata una lettura deludente, per cui avevo aspettative davvero molto alte che sono state rovinate su tutta la linea.

That The Song of Achilles offers a different take on the epic story of Achilles and the Trojan War is not, in itself, anything particularly out of the ordinary. People have been putting their own spins on The Iliad from the instant Homer finished reciting it. What's startling about this sharply written, cleverly re-imagined, enormously promising debut novel from Madeline Miller is how fresh and moving her take on the tale is — how she has managed to bring Achilles and his companion Patroclus to life in our time without removing them from their own.

But in the case of Miller, who earned undergraduate and graduate degrees in classics at Brown, the epic reach exceeds her technical grasp. The result is a book that has the head of a young adult novel, the body of the “Iliad” and the hindquarters of Barbara Cartland.

I could recognize him by touch alone, by smell; I would know him blind, by the way his breaths came and his feet struck the earth.  I would know him in death, at the end of the world.
We were like gods at the dawning of the world, and our joy was so bright we could see nothing else but the other.
"That is — your friend?"

"Philtatos," Achilles replied, sharply. Most beloved.
