I'm reading this right now, I'm sure a lot of you have read it too.
I keep thinking about it at work and getting depressed for some reason. It's like I relate too much to Patroclus in how he feels like nothing compared to Achilles. I dunno, it's like awakening some feeling of unworthiness in me that I didn't even know was there. And the funny thing is, neither Patroclus nor I can blame Achilles for it, he's entirely honest and won't stop caring for Patroclus ever, and doesn't see him as inferior. I also know already about the tragic event that happens later, but that's not stopping my enjoyment of the book.
