- Narrated by: Perdita Weeks
MOTIVATION for READING: I really enjoyed The Song of Achilles (even though I’ve forgotten much of the ‘story’ – oops)
WHAT’s it ABOUT: Circe is a daughter of Helios, banished to an island due to her use of witchcraft. We hear of her life from her perspective.
WHAT’s GOOD: Everything. Such fun! She lived a long long life and met many of the major players of Greek mythology.
What’s NOT so good: I don’t know… I thought it terrific.
FINAL THOUGHTS: She is presented as such a sympathetic character! She is strong, but she has her doubts. She has her failings; she ponders and regrets. She does the best she can. And when it works out for her, it is because she is true to herself. I really enjoyed this.
RATING: Five slices of pie. No mention of pie noted. Audiobook was well done.
Finally, more of me and my fascination/wannabe-bookcasterness:
Really. It is SO ODD to review myself. I like that I am expressive and that I didn’t talk too fast. But is that how I look? How we see ourselves is so different than the image inside our own heads… How is 9:30 pm “late at night”? ha. I have to be asleep by 10 pm most days anymore…
