Brilliant, poetic, possibly the best book I’ve read in 2018.
I was not a fan. I attempted to read it a few times and every time was unsuccessful. I heard great things about it but it wasnt my cup of tea. Give it a chance and see what you think. My opinion is probably the odd man out.
The audiobook was wonderful.
I have a hard time following audiobooks. I would rather have the book in my hand but again I heard the audio was great too.
@Hailey I am trying to like it. I too heard good things. I will keep reading
Definitely keep it up. If you just can’t (which is where i was) then move on and find something new. Best of reading
I loved her writing style but I was bored with the plot…
I was on the fence about it. I like the subject matter, but the writing style was a mix of tell mythology/ almost info dump, and then occasionally show a scene. It seemed interesting mainly because it’s a retelling on a subject that hasn’t been driven into the ground recently. If it had more competition I probably wouldn’t have finished it
I’ve heard good reviews.
It was ok. That’s not a normal genre/topic for me but I liked it.
I liked it.
I enjoyed it. It made look up more from her and discover Song of Achilles which I loved loved and loved some more. Read it!!
I listened to it and loved it

Or possibly my favourite
I really enjoyed it
I loved it..I love greek myths soooo
Loved. Strong female lead and you really get into the world
I absolutely loved it. As others have said one of my favorite (if not my favorite) book of 2018. It’s a beautiful story.
I think Circe is a work of art, do you?
@Diane definitely. It’s so poetic. I just adored it!
@Carla, me too. I have a book crush on Circe. After after I finished reading it, I listened to the audiobook. I had book hangover after.
TBR book. The Song of Achilles is excellent.
It retold stories beautifully from a perspective I wouldn’t have otherwise considered. I paused on a number of passages to breathe in the poetry. Lovely book.
I loved it!!! If you are looking for something else with a Greek Mythology theme try, “The Silence of the Girls” by Pat Barker!
