Our next Book Club will be centred around ‘The Song of Achilles’ by Madeline Miller, first published in 2017.

We will meet at Room 2 in Chiswick, and food and drinks are available to purchase.

We suggest that everyone who would like to join our Book Club on this date acquires the book (either electronic or physical, whichever you prefer), and comes prepared to talk about it. Even if you started reading but didn’t finish, you are still welcome to join, but please be aware that discussions can cover all aspects of the book, including the ending.

‘The Song of Achilles’ Book description:

Greece in the age of heroes. Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to the court of King Peleus and his perfect son Achilles.

Despite their differences, Achilles befriends the shamed prince, and as they grow into young men skilled in the arts of war and medicine, their bond blossoms into something deeper - despite the displeasure of Achilles's mother Thetis, a cruel sea goddess.

But when word comes that Helen of Sparta has been kidnapped, Achilles must go to war in distant Troy and fulfill his destiny.

Torn between love and fear for his friend, Patroclus goes with him, little knowing that the years that follow will test everything they hold dear.
