Book Overview

"A bold and subversive retelling of the goddess's story," this #1 New York Times bestseller is "both epic and intimate in its scope, recasting the most infamous female figure from the Odyssey as a hero in her own right" (Alexandra Alter, The New York Times ). In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child--not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother.

Greek Mythology Lovers Rejoice!

If you loved her first novel, "Song of Achilles" or Claire Andrews' "Daughter of Sparta" you will love this one too! Viewed from Circe's eyes as though she is sitting down and telling you the story of her life. Another beautifully done and well written book. This book is linked with "Song of Achilles" in a few ways, so if it left you wanting more this book is a must read!

Buy it!!! You won’t want to return it!!

Madeline Miller kept me completely drawn in with her colorful and vivid detail in Circe. It feels so real. Circe should be the go to book for the modern day feminist.

Madeline Miller is a genius!!!

Don't hesitate to pick up this magnificent novel! The author did a fantastic job bringing the Witch of Aaia, the Great Nymph Circe to life on every page in such vivid detail. From her meek beginings to becoming confident and feared, you live each moment with Circe in her exile and in the tasks she must do. I loved seeing her come into her power and her willingness to do what ever means necessary to ensure the protection of those she loved. The author did an amazing job weaving the affairs Circe had with Hermes, Daedalus & Odysseus into something that read very realistic. I adored this book! It was certainly a 5/5 for me! If you enjoy Mythology, I highly reccomend Circe!!!

Beautifully written modern Greek mythology

Miller's writing style is poetically descriptive and she will suck you right into the world of Greek mythology. The characters are all magical (even the humans in their own ways!) as they are flawed.
