The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Circe - Madeline Miller - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of Circe:

The life and times of an exiled nymph.

My favorite Madeline Miller quote from the book:

"How many of us would be granted pardon if our true hearts were known?"

Questions to ponder while reading Circe:

Could you have borne the loneliness?

Do you get along with your parents?

My review of the book Circe:

A great Greek mythology retelling.

Completely engrossing.

I can't believe how many of the Greek divine beings behaved badly.
