Enya and Achilles

08 November 2008



The legendary Greek hero, Achilles, has many re-tellings of his tale. One of the many stories about him is Achilles by Elizabeth Cook. Almost like a biography, with brief segments of his life is told in only 3 chapters and more then 100 pages. I give it 4 and a half stars. Also, a movie was made to tell the story of the Trojan War (you can see Brad Pitt as Achilles above) is called Troy. Mostly because the battle was in Troy...



Enya


Enya is not a book, but a really magnificent singer. She sings like a real angel, and has always been my favorate singer. A song that used to be my favorate as a child was Only Time by Enya. And below (1) is a really amazing song called Anywhere Is : (2) is another song called Only If.

Enya composes, sings, and plays the instruments on all her songs with the help on Nicky Ryan. Her family was very musicial, and Enya is a well known soloist singer in her home country of Ireland. Her music is known as "dream music" and "the music of your soul". Its AWESOME!
