Kirja-arvosteluja

I haven't read a book this well-written in a long time. Elegant prose throughout. I loved the way Miller added depth and nuance to the classic Greek myths I've read throughout my lifetime. The whole book was just delicious, the ending poetic.

I knew how this book would end since I knew the story, but the way Miller writes it just destroyed me. This books was not what I thought it was going to be, in a good way. I thought it was mostly going to focus on the war, but I love that it shows the whole life of the characters. The novel format of this makes the story much more accessible for people. Miller paints the relationship so beautifully and boldly that I couldn't help but wish for a different end. This book absolutely lives up to the hype.… (lisätietoja)
