Book Review – Circe

Cover image for Circe [large print] / Madeline Miller.

By Madeline Miller.

Fans of Greek mythology stories are going to love this one! In this novel Circe, the witch known as the villainous seductress from Homer’s Odyssey is recast as a victim of the corrupt society of the Gods, doing all she can to make a home and find herself. Powerful, poetic, and not afraid to show the ugly parts of womanhood.

Book Review – Neil Gaiman – Norse Mythology

51C7IGsOYHL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_Neil Gamian’s retelling of the dark and violent world of the Norse gods – the ultimate dysfunctional family. Norse Mythology trims down the complicated mess of stories that makes up the Norse lore into a very readable digest that covers the main story lines without having to read across many different authors and retells them in Gaiman’s grim and witty style. 5/5 stars.
