I was one of the lucky winners of this book. Many decades have gone since I last read the Greek myths but my memories of them rapidly returned as I read Circe. Unlike the Observer reviewer on the back cover I didn't read it "gobbled greedily in one session" but the more I got into it the more time I spent reading it at a time. Circe is told in the first person so the reader learns her story from her perspective, her thoughts, wishes, experiences, how her character develops. The character of Circe really comes alive. The book is beautifully written.
