I’ve had this downloaded on Kindle for a while and hadn’t gotten around to it. But I was saying how I like books that are emotional and a friend recommended it.
The beginning was beautiful – just two innocent kids growing up, falling in love. Achilles, a hero in the making, and the protagonist, Patroclus, an average, sensitive boy.
The middle parts were a little boring in my opinion, but the character development was strong and you really felt for the characters.
My friend was right. It was such a terribly sad ending. So so sad. Heartbreaking. The last quarter of the book was fantastic and wow I was so impressed.
The writing style was great throughout – it felt really magical to read.
If you’re looking for a book that plays with your heartstrings – this is it.
