THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
THE NEW YORK TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER

From the Orange Prize-winning, internationally bestselling author of The Song of Achilles comes the powerful story of the mythological witch Circe, inspired by Homer's Odyssey

Chosen as must-read book of 2018 by the Guardian, i, Mail on Sunday, Sunday Express and Stylist

In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe has neither the look nor the voice of divinity, and is scorned and rejected by her kin. Increasingly isolated, she turns to mortals for companionship, leading her to discover a power forbidden to the gods: witchcraft.

When love drives Circe to cast a dark spell, wrathful Zeus banishes her to the remote island of Aiaia. There she learns to harness her occult craft, drawing strength from nature. But she will not always be alone; many are destined to pass through Circe's place of exile, entwining their fates with hers. The messenger god, Hermes. The craftsman, Daedalus. A ship bearing a golden fleece. And wily Odysseus, on his epic voyage home.

There is danger for a solitary woman in this world, and Circe's independence draws the wrath of men and gods alike. To protect what she holds dear, Circe must decide whether she belongs with the deities she is born from, or the mortals she has come to love.

Breathing life into the ancient world, Madeline Miller weaves an intoxicating tale of gods and heroes, magic and monsters, survival and transformation.

Noch nie war griechische Mythologie so greifbar!

Judith-Lea Mönch, Thalia-Buchhandlung Pforzheim

Nach ihrem preisgekrönten Debüt "The Song of Achilles" folgt nun Madeline Millers zweiter Roman, der seinem Vorgänger in Nichts nachsteht. Mit Circe hat sich Miller einer Randfigur der antike Sage der Odyssee zugewandt und diese durch ihr unvergleichliches erzählerisches Talent so naturverbunden, wild, und emotional greifbar zum Leben erweckt, dass mich die Neuerzählung des Stoffes wie ein Fluss mit sich gerissen hat. In wunderschönen Metaphern und Monologen Circes hat mich Miller unweigerlich an diese Figur gebunden. Mit Freude verfolgt der Leser ihren Weg vom schwachen Kind zur starken, eigenständigen Frau, die sich gegen die mächtigsten Götter des Olymps zu behaupten wagt. Für alle bilingualen Leser empfehle ich unbedingt die hier vorliegende Ausgabe, da sie für mich das mit Abstand schönste Buchcover seit langem hat (unter dem Schutzumschlag wird Sie eine florale Explosion erwarten!!). Für alle deutschsprachigen Leser wird dieser Roman am 30.08.2019 unter dem Titel "Ich bin Circe" erscheinen.

So I really really honestly loved this so much! Greek Mythology is like my favorite mythology, and I love the way this is told like one! Or, well, written. It had me captivated from page one - I love Circes growth and how she hadles all that is hurled her way. She is not a perfect goddess in any sense, and she embraces her flaws and just wants to be different, wants to be herself. I had not anticipated the way it would end and I loved that as well! If you love Greek Mythology and badass women, you will totally love this. <3
