Editorial Reviews

“I loved it.”

– J.K. Rowling

“One of the best novelistic adaptations of Homer in recent memory, and it offers strikingly well-rounded and compassionate portrait of Achilles....[Miller] injects a newfound sense of suspense into a story with an ending that has already been determined.”

– Wall Street Journal
