Beschreibung

"A bold and subversive retelling of the goddess's story," this #1 New York Times bestseller is "both epic and intimate in its scope, recasting the most infamous female figure from the Odyssey as a hero in her own right" (Alexandra Alter, The New York Times).

In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child -- not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power -- the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves.

Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus.

But there is danger, too, for a woman who stands alone, and Circe unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods, ultimately finding herself pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians. To protect what she loves most, Circe must summon all her strength and choose, once and for all, whether she belongs with the gods she is born from, or the mortals she has come to love.

With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language, and page-turning suspense, Circe is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man's world.

Buchhändler-Empfehlungen

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
