Circe was okayish, this is the second chance I was giving Miller before deciding that her access to myths doesn’t match mine. I liked Achilles more than Circe, but part of that is that I’m a sucker for the pairing. I didn’t like the depiction of Patroclus too much, and both felt oddly pale to me. I know it’s the current poster child of queer readership and TikTok in particular, but … ehh. It’s alright.

Could be I’m just unfairly harsh because Logue’s War Music has set unreasonable standards, though.


47/ The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. Basically Achilles fanfiction. A bit better than I make it sound but not *that* much better. Reading this so soon after War Music was not a good idea. https://books.rixx.de/madeline-miller/the-song-of-achilles/
