The Song of Achilles | Madeline Miller

I could recognize him by touch alone, by smell; I would know him blind, by the way his breaths came and his feet struck the earth. I would know him in death, at the end of the world.

Gorgeous interpretation of the life of Circe, who I knew only from The Odyssey. By centering Circe's story, Miller reveals the corruption in the power of this world: of men over women, of gods over mortals (and everyone with less power than them), and finds the ways that Circe can claim her identity for her own.

This has been on my TBR list for a while now, and since its winter break I have some time to devour a few on that list! Fingers crossed that this is as phenomenal as the reviews lead me to believe.

"when I was born, the name for what I was did not exist. they called me nymph, assuming I would be like my mother and aunts and thousand cousins. least of the lesser goddesses, our powers were so modest they could scarcely ensure our eternities. we spoke to the fish and flowers, coaxed drops from the clouds or salt from the waves. that word, nymph, paced out the length and breadth of our futures. in our language, it means ... bride."

Even though Madeline Miller is considered a master storyteller, this book was not for me. I've had English courses that featured mythology but it is not my go-to genre. I was participating in a group read or I would have bailed on the book because it really did not hold my attention. I wanted to see if something would spark my interest but that did not happen. I would recommend this book to those who like mythology. I have read glowing reviews.

Ruthiella I‘m one of the few that also found this title disappointing 😬 I really enjoyed The Song of Achilles though. 11mo
EadieB @Ruthiella Thanks! Good to know! 11mo
kellyann28 I thought I was the only person that didn't care much for this one! I'm glad it's not just me. 11mo

I enjoyed reading this. #madelinemiller gave a feminist spin on the obscure story of the nymph #Circe by portraying her as a strong protagonist who defied the wiles and whims of patriarchal gods and vengeful goddesses. Not to mention getting unruly men in line by turning them to pigs. 🙌🏼 Definitely a pick for me. #greekmythology #feminism
