This book is one of those rare books that have a way of remaining permanently etched in one’s heart. Circe is an expertly woven retelling of The Odyssey from the perspective of the exiled Witch-Goddess, Circe.
Madeline Miller is a master storyteller. Although this book was beautiful to read in the quiet moments when I was alone and able to travel between the pages (a journey so exquisite I could barely breathe), I could easily see it told around a fire by one of the few Storytellers existing today.
Circe has become one of my favorite characters of all time. I aspire to be just like this incredible witch. In a time where women everywhere are reclaiming the word “witch,” transforming it into a word of female power, this powerful and feminist book is a must read.
