2.5 stars rounded up. I felt this was decent, but not great. I'm feeling a little confused about all the five star ratings, because I don't think this was nearly as emotionally resonant as The Song of Achilles, and I found myself getting bored pretty ...more
Kristen Shaw and 12 other people liked Tatiana's review of Circe:
Circe by Madeline Miller
"DNF at 20%

Find it odd to call this a "feminist" tale, Circe's life revolves around men, and pretty much every attractive female in this story is a slut of some kind, in Circe's perception.

Also bored...

“When we are young, the words are scattered all around us. As they are assembled by experience, so also are we, sentence by sentence, until the story takes shape.”
Louise Erdrich, The Plague of Doves

Louise Erdrich
“Old love, middle love, the kind of love that knows itself and knows that nothing lasts, is a desperate shared wildness.”
Louise Erdrich, The Plague of Doves

Louise Erdrich
“Freedom, I found is not only in the running but in the heart, the mind, the hands.”
Louise Erdrich, The Plague of Doves

Louise Erdrich
“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.”
Louise Erdrich, The Painted Drum

Jacques Derrida
“Monsters cannot be announced. One cannot say: 'Here are our monsters,' without immediately turning the monsters into pets.”
Jacques Derrida
