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 of a romantic focus than Circe But, whatever the reason, I had no such problem with this book I was absolutely captivated from start to finish.
Circe is part beautifully written literary fantasy and part divine Greek soap opera This strange combination makes for a book that is extremel Do you ever just get mad because you re spending your life paying rent and wishing you could take a break from the linear flow of time when you could have been a goddess living in an enchanted island that is only seen every ten years and is unreachable by men You live with ancient queens of myth and you re so much a part of each other it was like a second soul inside your skin You sing hymns, burn incenses, and make fragrant oils You call birds to sing at your windows, fall asleep in patches of magical herbs with hair dripping all around you like a shawl and sit by the hearth with a lioness, cheeks glowing with the flames light Your skin is all luster and gleam and you re so far removed from the world s sorrows and so at peace and healthy You live into 300 years, and in the space where legends and fairytales are gathering up words, your names are amongst them.
Yeah, same.
Absolutely beautiful 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 quiet 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 be È Circe ✓ Men, can t live with em, can t turn em all into swine What do you mean turn them intoswine From her earliest application of her new found transformative skills it is suggested that what Circe turns her unfortunate guests into has to do with their innermost nature than Circe s selection of a target form The strength of those flowers lay in their sap, which could transform any creature to its truest self.
Clearly her sty residents had an oinky predisposition And I am sure that there are many who had started the transformation long before landing on her island.
Whaddya call the large sty Circe filled with erstwhile men A good start.
Ok You had to know this would be part of the deal for this review So, now that I have gotten it out of my system, it is out, right we can proceed When I was born, the name for what I was did not exist It was a word that Barbara Bush mig When I was born, the name for what I was did not exist.
Where do I even begin This was one of the most amazing, beautiful, intricate, captivating books I have had the pleasure of reading in my entire life I have been a bookworm since I was barely walking, and yet this book, this gorgeous retelling, has impacted me so profoundly that I genuinely do not know if I will ever be entirely the same It is a common saying that women are delicate creatures flowers, eggs, anything that may be crushed in a moment s carelessness If I had ever believed it, I no longer did.
As a child, I loved Greek mythology, and though I lost some of that knowledge through recent years, when I heard that this story was releasing, I knew I just had to read it I thought it was going to be the story from Circe s point of view, but ultimately, I expected it to revolve 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 3.
5 stars Madeline Miller s Circe is an epic that s sweeping the nation today Everywhere you turn, you see that magnificent cover honestly, that cover work is DIVINE and I ve had the MOST fun photographing it for the bookstagram Twitter and Instagram are as we speak packed with Circe references and Miller interviews and, within all of that, Circe has found itself wrapped in all of the fluff and buildup and publicity of a typical ultra hyped, big named publisher release Let s be serious most of us LOVE these kinds of releases and all the hysteria involved, even if we shy away from actually reading the hyped release itself It can be a book lover s dream a book with all the fanfare of a blockbuster, silver screen release I, too, was swept up in the craze, yet another smash hit from the publisher who brought us fan favorites like Twilight and whom I once interned for in London But, in the
