12/20: a surprise

I'm reading Madeline Miller's Song of Achilles because I'll be teaching it this upcoming semester.  I'm not sure I love the book overall, but I think it'll be good to talk about with students.  I did, however, love what it did with the sacrifice of Iphigenia.  It made total sense within the logic of the book, but I was still surprised and enjoyed being surprised.
