  • 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 Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themseIn 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 Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves.Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus But there is danger, too, for a woman who stands alone, and Circe unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods, ultimately finding herself pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians To protect what she loves most, Circe must summon all her strength and choose, once and for all, whether she belongs with the gods she is born from, or the mortals she has come to love.With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language and page turning suspense, Circe is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man s world.

    1. Hello, my name is Ana and I am a Greek mythology addict. A brief introduction to the deities of Greek mythology. Zeus (Thunder God, king of the Gods)Hera (Queen of Olympus, Goddess of marriage) Demeter (Goddess of the harvest, agriculture and fertility) Poseidon (God of the Sea) Hestia (Virgin goddess of the hearth)Hades (God of the Underworld, riches, king of the dead)Persephone/Kora (Goddess of Spring, Queen of the Underworld)Athena (Virgin Goddess of wisdom, craft, and war; companion of heroe [...]


    2. “Witches are not so delicate,” I said.I absolutely loved this. If you enjoy Greek mythology, complex heroines, and a generous serving of adventure, bloodshed, betrayal, magic, and monsters - both literal and figurative - then hell, READ THIS BOOK.To be honest, I wasn't a huge fan of Miller's The Song of Achilles when I read it a few years back. I'm not sure if that's because my tastes were different back then, or if it was just because the plot had more of a romantic focus than Circe. But, w [...]


    3. I dived into Circe believing to be fully prepared for it, all because I had read and re-read, loved and re-loved The Song Achilles. Now I know that was a foolish notion for me to entertain.“It was my first lesson. Beneath the smooth, familiar face of things is another that waits to tear the world in two.”In fact, I soon learned the hard way that no matter how well you think you know her and her writing, you are never prepared for what Madeline Miller's pen is going to deliver. This because t [...]


    4. ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.I'll be honest with you all; all I've ever wanted in my life is an Odyssey retelling from Circe's POV and I cannot believe I just got approved for an ARC of this. 💗


    5. 4.5 starsSuch a great book! You do not need to be a fan of mythology to read this book! Confession - I requested this book because I saw it on a list about "anticipated books of 2018” It did not disappoint. If anything this book dazzled! Anticipate this book folks and rush out and get yourself a copy when it becomes available (or request it on NetGalley as I did!).Circe is the daughter of Helios, the god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans. Her mother, Perse, an Oceanid naiad is beautiful a [...]


    6. I LOVED The Song of Achilles and wasn't totally sure what to expect here (since Circe's story isn't as big), so I went into this book trying not to compare the two. I'm glad I did that now because both stories are incredibly well done, yet do feel a bit different. I think The Song of Achilles has more emotional angst and action to get invested in since it draws from a sweeping, epic poem. Circe felt more like a journey and portrait of a character's growth, so I got invested for other reasons and [...]


    7. 'I thought once that gods are the opposite of death, but I see now they are more dead than anything, for they are unchanging, and can hold nothing in their hands.'5 wonderful Madeline Miller stars! After The Song of Achilles, I was intrigued to see what marvels would come next. Set in the aftermath of the Olympian victory over the Titans, Circe is a lesser daughter of Helios, the Titanic Sun God, a nymph and immortal.I am not going to go into details of plot. When I started reading, I remembered [...]


    8. Me: Madeline Miller broke my heartMadeline Miller: writes a new bookMe: I needBonus:Also Madeline Miller: it's a Odyssey retelling from Circe's PoV or whatevsMe: *softly, but with feeling* holy shiT



    9. MADELINE MILLER IS WRITING A NEW BOOK!!!and it's about the Odyssey ?binch live updates as they come I'M SO READY FOR THIS


    10. Thence we sailed on, grieved at heart, glad to have escaped death, though we had lost our dear comrades; and we came to the isle of Aeaea, where dwelt fair-tressed Circe, a dread goddess of human speech, own sister to Aeetes of baneful mind; and both are sprung from Helius, who gives light to mortals, and from Perse, their mother, whom Oceanus begot. Here we put in to shore with our ship in silence, into a harbor where ships may lie, and some god guided us. Then we disembarked, and lay there for [...]



    11. Circe is an epic fantasy that reads like a historical fiction novel, based on the Greek mythology of the witch of Aiaia, the daugher of a Titan- Circe.I minored in the classics at university and one of my favorite classes was mythology. I love taking apart stories that mirror humanity's foibles and try to explain the origin of some of life's harder truths.In the war between the Titans and the Olympians, a creation story that could be interpreted to mean the ascension of modern culture over more [...]


    12. *I was sent an arc by the publishers*material in books is subject to change.I always enjoyed the Odyssey, but it was never a favorite tale of mine. Circe, for those who might not be familiar with the story, was a minor character who’s notorious moment of fame was when she turned Odyssey’s men into pigs. Yes, that actually happened—and yes, she made me enjoy the tale considerably more than had she never been written into it.With that out of the way, I should begin this review by saying that [...]


    13. Circe de-clawed and domesticatedOnce again, I'm afraid I'm an outlier when it comes to Miller: while I didn't dislike this in the same way that I did her Achilles, I found this to be a shallow, even superficial, version of Circe, and one which takes a woman who is wild and dangerous in the originary myths and then de-claws and domesticates her. Miller's Circe is kind and gentle, yearning to be loved and included in her cold family, and even the meanness of her sister Pasiphaë doesn't rouse her. [...]


    14. Thank you to Little, Brown and Company for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review!




    15. Originally posted on A Frolic Through Fiction*Thank you so much to the publisher for sending me an early copy of this book! This in no way affects my opinion.I already know I’m going to reread this book many times in my life. I already want to reread it, and I’ve only just finished it.Now, I’ve not yet read The Odyssey, the book that’s said to have inspired this one. But I certainly don’t think it loses anything by reading it that way round. I did the same with The Song of Achilles – [...]


    16. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.A much-loved legend, retold in an intricate, convincing, tale.As a child, I loved the story of the Odyssey. Trojan horses, Cyclopes, evil sirenswhat wasn't to like? One character always held particular fascination (and mild horror) though, and that was Circe the sorceresswho turned Odysseus' men into pigs. When I spotted this book on Netgalley, I realised that, aside from the swine-transforming skills, there was very [...]


    17. Originally reviewed here @ AngievilleI'm still struggling to believe this moment is actually here. It was almost exactly three years ago that I read and reviewedMadeline Miller's stunningThe Song of Achilles and essentially dissolved into a puddle of shock and awe. It was difficult to summon the will to move on in the wake of such a book. The crafting of it felt almost too good for this world, as though it had been created slightly above mortal ground and continued to hover there, just above us, [...]


    18. I’m quiet sure so many people won’t like this book as much as The Song Of Achilles. There is not a big and enrapturing love story, there are no warriors in shiny armors and there are no glorious deeds. If it was quiet easy to root for Achilles’ and Patroclo’s story, it won’t be the same for Circe’s. However, i am immensely grateful for Circe. When i started it i had no expectations because i didn’t know what it would be about - except for the character of Circe.After 17 years from [...]



    19. Feminism meets Greek mythology at its best. RTC!---Now that I've finally read the heartbreak that was The Song of Achilles, I can move on to my ARC of this gorgeous book. What I should be thinking:What I'm actually thinking:


    20. “All my life had been murk and depths, but I was not a part of that dark water. I was a creature within it.” I would like to start off this review saying that I would have travelled to the ends of the earth to get my hands on a copy of this book. Luckily enough, Bloomsbury kindly sent an ARC to me in exchange for an honest review. There was no need for bloody battles or deadly sacrifices.Circeby Madeline Miller is a slight retelling of Homer’sOdyssey,where Homer introduces her after Odysse [...]



    21. Circe is de dochter van de Zonnegod Helios en de Oceanide Perse. Ze is al sinds haar geboorte anders dan andere Goden en is hierdoor een beetje een buitenbeentje. Ze heeft een vreemde stem, ze ziet er normaal uit en ze heeft geen krachten. Ze wordt verliefd op de mens Glaucos en uit pure wanhoop verandert ze hem per ongeluk in een God. Happily Ever After, zou je denken, maar niets is minder waar. Glaucos wordt verliefd op de nimf Scylla en uit razernij en jaloerzie verandert Circe deze beeldscho [...]



    22. This far exceeded my expectations, which were already far too high. I have no background in Greek mythology, and The Song of Achilles blew me away because it somehow made these complicated myths feel real, even with all the gods and nymphs running around. That book was a lot easier to root for, because it revolved around the relationship between Achilles and Patroclus. This time around, there is not only a far bigger and more complicated cast, but there's no central relationship to hook you into [...]


    23. CIRCE is written so beautifully and epically it almost felt metaphysical. I am so sad to not be reading it anymore. I keep having moments where I am thinking about living life fully, motherhood, and feelings that are so human they are biblical and I wonder, "why was I just thinking about that?" It is because I just finished CIRCE. It made me examine what it means to be human. This book whipped me into a world I did not want to leave. I felt like I was dreaming the most wonderful, colorful, and s [...]
