Wow. This was a lovely book. I thought the reader of the audiobook did a great job, although the voice he used for Odysseus was both annoying and too distinctive, giving the game away at one point where the author had intended the identity of the speaker to be a mystery. I had wondered how the book would end, knowing that the two main characters, including the one narrating the story must die before the conclusion of the story, but the death of Patroclus and its aftermath were handled deftly, and with great sensitivity by the author, I thought. I hope Madeline Miller is working on her next project, as I very much would like to read more from her.
