It took me long enough to finally get around to reading this. I'd had it on my shelf for over ten years. Even worse, it was assigned for one of my first college classes ever--I had parts underlined, margin notes even--but I'd never read the whole thing.

The pacing really killed me. I spent countless books hoping that Achilles would turn up on the scene again. When he finally did, I found myself caught up in the action and enjoying myself.
