I found this to a very enjoyable read, especially if you enjoy mythology or even just fantasy. The Greek myth characters are a little thick in the beginning but you learn as you go and I found it easy to keep them straight. There is a little glossary in the back of the book for reference if you get lost. I loved the evolution of Circe and how she changed even though she was immortal. What a testimony to self-growth and growing courage! There were several sentences that the author delivered that caused me to stop and relish them. It was beautifully written. I think I will now add The Song of Achilles, by the same author, to my list to read.
