Last Best Book Susana Read: Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

Why Susana Liked It: From the voice of Patroclus, an exiled prince—Homer is reimagined in this retelling. The close relationship of the dark young narrator and his golden demi-God twin-flame Achilles. The writing of Miller is verdant, tactile and intoxicating in a deceptively seemingly simple approach where she digs into the characters, surrounds and seas—their era— simultaneously poetic and entrancing.

In Three Words: Mythic. Lush. Heart-wrenching.
