This was a beautiful book. I love the way it was written and the diction(quite poetic or metaphorical or Shakespeare esque). Characters and sights were amazingly described, making it easy to submerge yourself within the world or scene. Would like to read it for the first time again.
As a reader who doesnt get engaged easily this book was hard to read at first but after a few chapters I was hooked! This book made me ugly cry and the way the story leads up to Patroclus' and Achilles' death was honestly filled with heartache. Not to mention the strong connection that Patroclus and Achilles had was sweet and almost relatable in a way. Of course this book isnt in my top 5 but 100% in my top 10!
