Review of 'The Silence of the Girls' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

This is a wonderful novel and frankly a lot more interesting to me than The Iliad itself. If anyone were ever looking for a GoT follow up I think Pat Barker has you covered. The violence was as graphic as Homer's poem but so much more personal and therefore horrifying. Barker's prose is smooth. She disappears behind the stitches of narrative and makes it all look easy.
