Exactly twelve weeks after I read The Song of Achilles, I have come back to Madeline Miller for my Greek mythology fiction fix. And I am mildly disappointed. While this particular story is also very well written and there wasn’t anything I particularly disliked, it just wasn’t as fun to read as the The Song of Achilles. Circe being able to hold her own against the big leaguers of the Greek pantheon is wonderful, love me a nice underdog story.

All of that said, I am down to read more of Madeline Miller’s Greek mythology fiction work, she is quite good at it. Maybe some time next year though, I’ve had my fill for now.
