Greek mythology reads

I receive mailers from Waterstone's from time to time. Recently, there was one advertising Circe by Madeline Miller. The name got my attention and I suggested it to my wife as a birthday present. She saw it at the local bookshop and bought it for me. Since I am a child I have always been a big fan of Greek mythology and especially anything regarding Ulysses, my favourite Greek hero. If the weeks coming to Christmas is time for me to renew with Norse mythology, the weeks after Easter and leading to summer are for the Greek one. So this novel is on my reading list for the upcoming weeks. I know nothing about the novel and its author, except that she has received lots of praises for it and that it is meant to be really good. I am really looking forward to it.

I just bought this book too! (Haven't started reading it yet because I got sidetracked with "The Gutter and the Grave" lol).

Did you read Madeline Miller's first book "The Song of Achilles"? It is one of the most beautifully written books I've ever read. I highly recommend it!!!
