Eine gute, aber überbewertete Geschichte.

Ein leicht zu lesendes Buch, aber je weiter es voranschreitet, desto langweiliger wird es. Eine schöne Geschichte, aber ich denke, sie wird ziemlich überbewertet.

Eines meiner Lieblingsbücher! Es lohnt sich wirklich, auch wenn ich leider sagen muss, dass sich eine Stellen etwas ziehen, dennoch besser als die meisten anderen Bücher die so im Internet gehiped werden.

Could have found more depths

Bewertet: Buch (Gebundene Ausgabe)

Madeline Miller and I both seem to have a weakness for Greek mythology. "The Song of Achilles" was her first novel, before "Circe", which on the other hand I read first. The narrator here is Patroclus, Achilles' confidant and lover, and we meet just about everyone we can expect in a story about Achilles - Thetis, Chiron, Odysseus (thankfully all names are in their Greek versions), Menelaos, Agamemnon, Iphigenia, Briseis, Hector, Priam, Pyrrhus. Penthesilea is only mentioned in one paragraph, which is probably the most glaring almost-omission, but her part in the story would contradict the modern love story between Patroclus and Achilles. What I would have loved, though, would have been more original input. Madeline Miller obviously knows these stories but she might be too much in awe of them to give them radical new aspects. Sure, she reads the relationship between Achilles and Patroclus with a modern understanding of homosexuality as an identity instead of an action, but she can't be the first to do so. During the Trojan War, there is a moment when Patroclus reflects how much he knows about the Trojans by now, and he gives a few paragraphs about Hector and Paris. But Priam had 48 other sons - why not try to flesh one of them out? She is capable of that. What she does with Briseis is certainly her greatest achievement in this novel. A minor presence in most versions of the story, she becomes an actual well-rounded character here, whose friendship with Patroclus gives her a way more interesting narrative than those accounts that try to romanticize her and Achilles. Achilles' mother Thetis is another example, where Miller manages to find uncharted territory. She takes her time, but in the end it does happen. But while I can't claim that I was still aware of every detail of what happens when, there was not really anything in the novel that felt like a departure from common knowledge about the characters to me. As with "Circe", I would like to be more impressed with "The Song of Achilles", but if Miller stays with the Greek myths, I will probably read her next novel as well - who will it be about? Medea? Orestes? Hestia? There is still so much to explore!

I just love Madeline Miller and every word she writes. Would probably read her grocery list. Her modern interpretation of the Greek mythology surrounding Achilles and Patroclus in this beautiful, heartwrenching queer love story is just an absolute must read!
