Man, that guy's a heel!*

Maybe someone who's already read The Iliad can set me straight on something here: am I supposed to like or root for Achilles or something? Because quite frankly, he's striking me as a complete ass. "I don't care if all my countrymen get butchered by Hector, I'm mad at Agamemnon so I'm just gonna take my boats and go home." And I'm thinking, "Shut up and fight, you inveterate pansy!"

(I already know, of course, that Hector ends up dying in the end, by the way.)

*Get it? Achilles? Heel? Ha ha ha haaaaa!
