᠐ Best CIRCE (#1 New York Times bestseller) to read ᡝ Kindle Ebook By Madeline Miller ᢒ ᠐ Best CIRCE (#1 New York Times bestseller) to read ᡝ Kindle Ebook By Madeline Miller ᢒ An Best Book of April 2018 Though revisiting classical myths, Madeline Millers bold, poetic new novel, told in the voice of Circe Odysseuss lover, famous for turning his sailors into swine , is very much on trend, with an immortal protagonist and a feminist slant that will make MeToo ers cheer Miller reimagines the story of Circe, daughter of the sun, and reinvents her, changing Homers ruthless seductress into a woman with a restricted set of godly powers, a keen intelligence, and most important, empathy for humans a sentiment not shared by her godly relatives When Circes father banishes her to the island of Aiaia, her isolation from her scornful family comes as a gift, and her solitude grants her time to learn the art of witchcraft the only work she has ever undertaken For a hundred generations, I had walked the world, drowsy and dull, idle and at my ease, she says Then I learned that I could bend the world to my will, as a bow is bent for an arrow I would have done that toil a thousand times to keep such power in my hands She summons her skills when a boatload of would be rapists lands on her shores, but shows Odysseus mercy, and their encounter changes her forever Back in 2012, Millers novel The Song of Achilles earned the Orange Prize for Fiction For her many admirers, Circe is certainly worth the wait Sarah Harrison Smith, Book ReviewCirce, daughter of the sun god Helios, mightiest of the Titans, was a peculiar child who had few of the gifts the demigods enjoyed, and she was despised by her parents and numerous sisters for her deficits What she lacked in godlike ability, though, she compensated for with a gift for herbology and witchcraft When she is rejected by her first love, the mortal Glaucoswho pines instead for the beautiful nymph ScyllaCirce casts a spell that turns Scylla into a hideous sea creature For her transgression, Circe is banished by Zeus to an island, where she survives alone until Odysseus, son of Laertes, the great traveler, prince of wiles and tricks, lands upon her shores and is seduced by her Drawing on the mythology of the classical world, Miller deftly weaves episodes of war, treachery, monsters, gods, demigods, heroes, and mortals into her second novel of the ancient world after the Orange Prizewinning The Song of Achilles Prometheus and Medea are among those who also make an appearance here VERDICT This absorbing and atmospheric read
