My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.
I had to check this out several times before I finally finished it. Madeline Miller has a way of writing that makes me forget I'm reading. Circe is really beautiful prose without becoming too much. This one just never got as compelling as The Song of Achilles (hence the multiple check outs to finish it... I'm still bitter we never got bestseller copies of this so it took me even longer to finish because I had to keep putting it on hold).
