The book of the month: The song of Achilles

OK, starting with the "New Year's resolutions" or, rather, goals for this year, I have considered reading more books that make me happy.


I have always liked to read, since I was a child, I remember reading youth editions of classic stories such as the Gulliver's travels, Heidi, the Wizard of Oz, and many more. I don't consider myself an expert, so all the recommendations I make here are for mere personal taste and nothing else.


To say that you like to read, is like saying that you like music, there are an infinity of styles, rhythms, subjects as well as extensions of the book or music piece in question. Personally, I like to read novels, fiction. Although I was once more inclined towards classical literature, now I like to read contemporary books, particularly American and Ibero-American literature.


Nowadays there are endless awards for the best fiction (novel). This makes it easier to choose a good book. I started the year, taking advantage of the winter holidays, reading the book The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. I have barely read the first pages but it has caught me from the first moment. It is a recount of the classic story of the Greek hero, Achilles, of which there are already numerous adaptations in movies and books. Originally the author is based on the story of The Iliad by the classic Greek author Homer. This readaptation of the story of Achilles by Madeline Miller is very well written, simple to read, easy to understand, fresh and dynamic. By the way, the author is a big fan of the Greek classics, specializing in this subject at the university and, afterwards, becoming a college professor of classical studies. She really knows how to transmit on to you this love for the classics that she has.


When I finish reading the book I will write my review, but for now I can only say that I am definitely liking it a lot.


Well, this is both my personal goal and my recommendation in case anyone wants to join the reading of this book, then we could comment on it in the comments section of this post :)


See you later and happy reading!

I was in tears even before playing the video! Recently started watching Bluey and to be honest I am saviouring every episode, making sure not to rush through them. Luce as a kid would have love it too! Without all the sometimes extreme drama cartoons such as "Candy", "Peline" and the anime series called in Spanish "La Ranita Demetan" displayed. I also remember feeling sad and stressed after watching some of them...But Bluey is so not like that. I am sure this is appreciated by kids and parents equally. Cheers to all healthy, innocent and non invasive copying mechanisms! And thanks for sharing this one! 😍
