This is a beautiful book it is flawless and intelligent I do not have a single criticism for this fantastic piece of writing I loved it Circe chronicles the life of a lesser god She is the daughter of the mighty God Helios the living embodiment of the sun She is born without any particular talents or powers She exists in the shadows of her developed brothers and sisters She does not shine in such spectacular company However gifts come in many different forms and those with hidden talents are overlooked and devalued More often than not uiet people are forgotten about and there worth ill considered in all walks of existence Circe s family never saw what she could become Power is important though sometimes having none teaches one a greater lesson nothing is worth having unless it has been earned As such Circe wills herself into power as she discovers her affinity for witchcraft especially the art of transformationHer family banish her from their company for her use of such a lowly art and in doing so they set her free She finds herself in her exile On her island home she finds a paradise not a prison She becomes one with nature and finds company with lions and wolves Centuries pass ages pass and eventually some rather important characters come her way She meets Hermes and Athena Icarus and his farther Daedalus and Odysseus a man who changes her life and causes her to make a very powerful decision that leads this book into such an excellent conclusion But in a solitary life there are rare moments when another soul dips near yours as stars once a year brush the earth Such a constellation was he to me Circe offers a huge story a story that spans generations and includes many Greek heroes and gods Such is the nature of godhood of immortality When life goes on forever many notable people cross one s path And despite the huge number of famous characters here none of it felt forced it all slotted perfectly into Circe s life There are so many myths that intertwine with Circe like the story of the Minotaur and the fall of Icarus though despite the famous nature of many of them they don t for a second overshadow her She met Prometheus when she was young and decided that her life would not be the same as the other gods she was going to be her own woman And this is a book about her finding the most ultimate form of freedom I could not recommend it highly I really liked The Song of Achilles though this surpassed it in every way I really hope to see from this author in the future Five fantastic stars You can connect with me on social media via My Linktree

You threw me to the crows but it turns out I prefer them to you My words are not as good as the ones in this book Circe is a book about finding yourself But god it stands out so far from just that Okay to get started I m just going to say it Madeline Miller is one of the best writers of our time She has such a way with words that it is absolutely impossible not to be engaged in her storytelling The thing that brings this whole novel together is Circe s character She is a woman who has done awful evil things and yet remains unfailingly human She is lonely and harsh and hiding herself in sarcasm much of the time And there is not a moment in this novel in which I didn t adore her Madeline Miller does such an amazing job developing this character weaving her thoughts into the narrative without manipulating you into feeling a certain way keeping the narrative wide yet keeping it focused around Circe Throughout this novel I developed such a deep level of admiration for both this author and this character this character I m sure will stay with me forever This novel is so interesting because at its core it is an exploration of the voice of women in Greek mythology Circe is a character we see nothing of in the narrative of Greek mythology a character with seemingly evil intentions and little motivation and all this despite showing up in several different stories There s something supremely excellent about seeing a character like this who is essentially a plot device be given a story I know I have a tendency to repeat the term narrative agency but it beats repeating I absolutely love giving characters who have been given no agency the agency they deserve I mean everything about this book was just brilliant I loved the myth interpretation Penelope and Odysseus are both written perfectly and seeing Jason basically get called an asshole while Medea stood on being young and morally grey and in love was so fantastic And the exploration of gods vs mortals is just brilliant You cannot know how frightened gods are of pain There is nothing foreign to them and so nothing they ache deeply to see I loved the relationships just as a special note the relationship between Circe and Telegonus made me want to cry I basically loved everything I mean I think you guys have gotten pretty easily why I liked this so much a morally grey character driven retelling revolving around agency is basically my entire what I like bio This did all the things I like and I want to reread it daily and hourly I very well might I also want you all to know this book gave rise to my favorite update meme I have ever posted so thanks for thatBlog Goodreads Twitter Youtubebuddyread with my favorite Melanie
