Just about perfect.
The right end and I hardly saw it coming.
The whole fitted as perfectly as marquetry.

To be candid, I was never a big fan of Greek mythology. I nevertheless loved this book. Circe, daughter of Helios and Perses, is exiled to an island alone because of her witchcraft -- even though her sister and two brothers are also versed in the craft and are not punished. Parts of the Odyssey (including Odysseus himself) and other myths are woven into this story, but it is told in a rich, modern prose that is eminently more palatable to 21st century readers -- and, one might argue, told with a feminist perspective. It seemed to me a retelling of familiar classical tales from the perspective of a woman who was marginalized in old iterations, both epic and intimate, subversive and fresh. ( )

God that was exhausting. Didn't think I'd make it through. I am *BAFFLED* by how this was 2018 Best Fantasy Book on Goodreads. I guess I won't be following those as recommendations for what to read anymore, and this was my first attempt at that!

Recommended: NOPE
It lacked emotion, a likable main character, and at times was even lacking interest (aka.... it was dull.)

This follows the life of the goddess Circe, which seemed really exciting because she is a FASCINATING character of mythology. Unfortunately, it was written very weirdly, and it felt like she had no emotion, no strong voice, and came across almost like a documentary. I could picture David Attenborough reading this to me. (Audiobook idea? He would def make it better!)

At times it was just pages and pages of her saying "I'm bored" in a million different ways. I get that exile might be boring for an eternity, but my god, maybe you went too far with making your reader emphasize because I put the book down for a week or two and only barely managed to pick it back up! I didn't like Circe in this story. She was wildly fickle, flipping from one extreme to the other, with no consistency.

There are some events that I thought, there's no WAY this can be boring (her and the Minotaur, crossing Scylla's path, etc) and at times those parts did really suck me in. But in order to get to the Minotaur, we had days of bland sailing, looking around the woods, complaining to and about how mean her sister is. And that just really sucks the fun away.

I didn't HATE this book, but I was immensely bored by it, and disappointed by the Goodreads community, because how the heck was THIS what they thought the best fantasy book of 2018 was?! Fantasy is in a really bad state if that's true. Don't get sucked into the hype like I did, and try picking up Ben Bova's [b:The Winds of Altair|302520|The Winds of Altair|Ben Bova|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1312041451s/302520.jpg|293579] if you're looking for some real fantasy.

Enjoyable but not riveting. ( )

Indubbiamente Miller ha saputo ben fruttare i suoi studi classici, facendo sì che le permettessero di scrivere con cognizione di causa di mitologia greca. Dimenticate quegli imbarazzanti retelling dove le divinità greche sono buone, gli eroi vivono per sempre felici e contenti e le loro compagne si struggono per loro. Miller non conosce semplicemente i miti greci, conosce molto bene i testi e la cultura che l’ha prodotta, il che fa tutta la differenza del mondo quando vuoi metterci le mani.

La conoscenza di Miller, infatti, le permette di reinterpretare la figura di Circe e dei personaggi che entrano in relazione con lei mantenendo la coerenza narrativa con le fonti greche e trasmetendo al contempo un’idea di antica Grecia tramite l’uso sapiente di espressioni tratte dall’osservazione della natura che ai tempi servivano per rendere familiari eventi che non lo erano affatto.

Ho trovato molto realistica (rispetto alle fonti greche, ovviamente) la descrizione delle divinità, nella loro totale alterità dagli esseri umani, alterità che le rende pericolose e infide come serpenti velenosi. Hanno un potere immenso, ma basta che salti loro la mosca al naso e senza che tu te ne accorga sei mortǝ – se ti va bene. Evidentemente lз anticз grecз avevano più chiaro di noi come avere da sempre molto potere non renda dei soggetti particolarmente ragionevoli.

In quanto dea dalla voce umana, Circe è una figura liminale tra l’immortalità e la mortalità ed è dotata di un potere magico specializzato nella traformazione, che la farà oscillare tra i due mondi, fino alla scelta definitiva. In questo senso è una storia molto classica e non posso dire di essere rimasta sorpresa da nessuno degli sviluppi, ma mi sembra sciocco aspettarsi sconvolgimenti da un romanzo che ha nella sua ossatura la fedeltà alle fonti. Però è un romanzo molto piacevole da leggere e scommetto che Miller ha già appassionato alla mitologia greca un sacco di gente: che vogliamo chiederle di più? ( )

“Circe” will surely delight readers new to the witch’s stories as it will many who remember her role in the Greek myths of their childhood: Like a good children’s book, it engrosses and races along at a clip, eliciting excitement and emotion along the way.
 
Miller has taken the familiar materials of character, and wrought some satisfying turns of her own.
 
[W]hat elevates Circe is Miller’s luminous prose, which is both enormously readable and evocative, and the way in which she depicts the gulf between gods and mortals.
 
Written in prose that ripples with a gleaming hyperbole befitting the epic nature of the source material, there is nothing inaccessible or antiquated about either Circe or her adventures.
 
The character of Circe only occupies a few dozen lines of [the Odyssey], but Miller extracts worlds of meaning from Homer's short phrases.

“A happy man is too occupied with his life. He thinks he is beholden to no one. But make him shiver, kill his wife, cripple his child, then you will hear from him. He will starve his family for a month to buy you a pure-white yearling calf. If he can afford it, he will buy you a hundred.” “But surely,” I said, “you have to reward him eventually. Otherwise, he will stop offering.” “Oh, you would be surprised how long he will go on. But yes, in the end, it’s best to give him something. Then he will be happy again. And you can start over.”
This was how mortals found fame, I thought. Through practice and diligence, tending their skills like gardens until they glowed beneath the sun. But gods are born of ichor and nectar, their excellences already bursting from their fingertips. So they find their fame by proving what they can mar: destroying cities, starting wars, breeding plagues and monsters. All that smoke and savor rising so delicately from our altars. It leaves only ash behind.
Timidity creates nothing.
But in a solitary life, there are rare moments when another soul dips near yours, as stars once a year brush the earth. Such a constellation was he to me.
As it turned out, I did kill pigs that night after all.
