I absolutely LOVED this book. I got it from the library but I want to order it to own it. I can't stop talking about it and recommending it to all my friends and family.

I love Greek mythology, but it's been a while since I've done any in-depth studying about it. I was pleasantly surprised to see so many myths and names I recognized. It was almost better not being familiar with it, as I wasn't 100% sure what direction the story would turn.

Madeline Miller writes so enticingly well. I could not put this book down. I usually am more inclined to enjoy fast-paced thrillers, with lots of action and not so much description. But Miller provided just enough of a balance between the two, and the language she used kept me hooked.

This is my favorite book that I've read in a long time. I literally can't stop gushing about it. I've re-read the last chapter about three times now. If you love Greek mythology, you've got to read this one.
