The writer and journalist Viv Groskop reviewed The Song of Achilles for The Independent! Here is a an excerpt below:
“For a whistlestop tour around the life and times of Achilles, you’d be hard pressed to find a better guide than Madeline Miller. This accomplished and enjoyable novel…is original, clever and in a class of its own…an incredibly compelling and seductive read. It does what the best novels do – it transports you to another world.”
