Why did I love this book?
You might have heard of Circe somewhere in school, because she's known for that time when Odysseus (from Homer's The Odyssey) came to her island. Circe could transform men into pigs, so she has a reputation for being a witch. For centuries, we only knew Circe's story as told by men, but here, Circe's voice is the one we hear. Circe narrates the story of her life without holding back. This is a story of a woman coming into her power - both magic and otherwise.
