In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child -- not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power -- the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves. Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus. But there is danger, too, for a woman who stands alone, and Circe unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods, ultimately finding herself pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians. To protect what she loves most, Circe must summon all her strength and choose, once and for all, whether she belongs with the gods she is born from, or the mortals she has come to love.… (mer)

I learned to read at the same age as other children, but I got addicted to it and would haul armfuls of books from the public library every week. The usual childhood fare bored me pretty quickly – the Poky Little Puppy and the Three Little Kittens were cute enough, but you can only lose your mittens so many times without the reader wondering why Mrs. Cat didn’t buy some mitten straps. At any rate, I branched out into headier fare, like mythology, and was quickly bemused by Perseus and Bellerophon and especially Odysseus. Therefore it was a blow to my childhood memories to have him dissed – a little – by Madeline Miller in Circe. All the same, this is an intriguing book; Miller addresses the question of what it was like to be a Greek god or goddess: immortality with no responsibility or constraints. They come across as quite creepy; even the heroine Circe gives off some bad vibes – although I agree she had a pretty good excuse for turning men into swine. An easy read; a page turner yet thought-provoking. ( )

En el palacio de Helios, dios del Sol y el más poderoso de los titanes, nace una niña. Pero Circe es una niña rara: carece de los poderes de su padre y de la agresiva capacidad de seducción de su madre. Cuando acude al mundo de los mortales en busca de compañía, descubre que sí posee un poder: el de la brujería, con el que puede transformar a sus rivales en monstruos y amenazar a los mismísimos dioses.
Temeroso Zeus, la destierra a una isla desierta, donde Circe perfecciona sus oscuras artes, doma, bestias salvajes y se va topando con numerosas figuras célebres de la mitología griega: desde el Minotauro a Dédalo y su desventurado hijo Ícaro, la asesina Medea y, por supuesto el astuto Odiseo.
Pero también la acecha el peligro, y Circe concita, sin saberlo, la ira tanto de los humanos como de los Dioses, por lo que acaba teniendo que enfrentarse con uno de los Olímpicos más imponentes y vengativos. Para proteger aquello que ama Circe deberá hacer acopio de todas sus fuerzas y decidir, de una vez por todas, si pertenece al mundo en el que ha nacido o al mundo mortal que ha llegado a amar. ( )

I've always enjoyed reading Greek mythology when I was younger, so, this story of Circe from her point of view was highly riveting and enjoyable. A page-turner. ( )

Circe is the daughter of the Titan Helios and sea nymph Perse, granddaughter of Titan Oceanos. She is unloved, but eventually falls in love with a fisherman names Glaucos, who she helps transform into a demi-god. Glaucos has his choice of women and dumps her for a beauty, who Circe turns into a famous sea monster, and Circe is eventually banished by Zeus to a remote island, Aiaia. Circe's first real adventure is helping her sister, married to King Minos of Crete, give birth to the Minotaur, where she befriends Daedalus. Once back in Aiaia, she is visited by Odysseus, with whom she has a long and satisfying relationship, producing a son, who is threatened by the goddess, Athena. Author Miller has written a creative novel around many Greek myths and legends, which is quite readable. ( )

fiction based on Greek mythology. Good story, layered plots. ( )

“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.
