Madeline Miller is back, people! Even if you've never dabbled in that rich pool of high drama known as Greek mythology, her retelling of the goddess Circe's life will have you hunting for more. Miller brings fresh life to new and well-known characters alike. That and her superb storytelling had me hooked from start to finish. Circe is a character I knew very little about, but her story plays so much into what we know and love about Greek myth. You know a book is good when you plan your day around when you can read it.
