Stone Blind: A Novel | Natalie Haynes
post image
Pickpick

#StoneBlind was the perfect book for my holiday on Corfú. It‘s Haynes best book so far. We get multiple perspectives and everyone‘s background and the gods are actually portrayed as immortal & powerful. Great writing and storytelling.

A Thousand Ships | Natalie Haynes

Love love love loved it 🥰. I have a super soft spot for Greek mythology and omg this was so good. I finished it within two days which is super rare for me. The characters were good. Paragraphs weren't dragged out and although the order was a bit off in order to keep them short and sweet it was a highly readable book. Definitely recommend if you're a fan of the widely loved Song of Achilles and Circe!

The shortlist for the #WomensPrize has been announced. What do you think? I have already read A Thousand Ships & Girl, Woman, Other and I will probably start reading Hamnet tomorrow. The other three are on my list!

Inspired by listening to, and reading, Natalie Haynes to revisit the Aeneid for the first time since my O Levels, but maybe not yet up to reading it in Latin again. #virgil #aeneid #nataliehaynes #classics #book #books #bookstagram #currentlyreading #classicalliterature #latin #coffee #booksandcoffee #coffeeandbooks #caffeine #caffeineaddict #wakeupandsmellthecoffee #muswellhill #muswellhillbilly #n10 #cotebrasseriemuswellhill

What a marvellous book. Ms Haynes writes with such insight, clarity and enthusiasm about the enduring appeal and relevance of Classical Greek and Latin literature.

I have enjoyed Natalie Haynes‘s ‘The Ancient Guide to Modern Life‘ so much that I have decided to revisit Juvenal‘s Satires, which I remember grappling with in the original Latin forty odd years ago at school. #nataliehaynes #theancientguidetomodernlife #juvenal #satires #classics #literature #latin #i💙nataliehaynes

Eyejaybee @Wanderingwithwords I have only just started it, but it is marvellous so far. 5y
Vikkiha Haven‘t quite got round to this yet but I‘ve been planning to since I heard her on the Book Shambles podcast a while back. She was really knowledgeable and funny, I couldn‘t help but add all her books to my wish list. 5y

Eyejaybee @Vikkiha I have enjoyed her programmes on BBC Radio 4, and loved her novels, The Amber Fury and The Children of Jocasta. She has a great prose style, and imparts a huge amount of knowledge about the Classics without ever being patronising. 5y
Vikkiha I haven‘t listed to her Radio 4 programmes, going to see if any are on iplayer. Thanks for the tip. 😊 5y
Eyejaybee @Vikkiha I am hoping to go to the recording of her next show on 23 May. 5y
Vikkiha Good luck, hope you tks. Enjoy! 5y

A marvellous retelling of the Oedipus story from the women‘s point of view. Utterly gripping, and written with great empathy and understanding.
