Circe, After Hours Paperback – January 1, by Marilyn Kallet (Author)5/5(3). Circe, After Hours out of 5 stars Elegant, humorous, compassionate poems. Marilyn Kallet's work has been around for decades now and that richness, that patina of time, shines through in this latest book.

With an engaging mix of sly humor and eloquent 5/5. This book is a retelling of The Odyssey and follows the story of the witch Goddess Circe from her life living within halls of her father the Sun God and Titan Helios to her life of exile on Aiaia.

This book is very character driven which is what I loved about it and I adored Circe as a character/5(K). In this fully re-created childhood, Miller finds the roots of Circe’s later personality and isolation. Mocked by her far more majestic family, Circe is a kind of Titanic Jane Eyre, sensitive and.

An Amazon Best Book of April Though revisiting classical myths, Madeline Miller’s bold, poetic new novel, told in the voice of Circe (Odysseus’s lover, famous for turning his sailors into swine), is very much on-trend, with an immortal protagonist and a feminist slant that will make #MeToo-ers cheer.

Miller reimagines the story of Circe, “daughter of the sun,” and reinvents her /5(K). After Hours was partly based on the movie, Carlito's Way. I think that the story was based in 's New York-- back when New York was Circe a "real" city. I really liked the colorful street language in this book/5.

The book cover says "an intoxicating tale of gods and after hours book, magic and monsters, survival and transformation".

Yes, that about sums it up, this great story. The only remark I would have is that the middle part, Circe Circe is with Odysseus, is a bit of a small dip, which is why this book just miss/5(K). “Madeline Miller's re-imagining of the witch Circe from The Odyssey makes for an intriguing, feminist adventure novel that is perfectly suited for the #TimesUp moment.

Circe is also a smart read that has much to say about the long-term consequences of war and a culture that values violence and conquest over compassion and learning.”.

After speaking with Zeus, who feels threatened by this new non-divine power, Circe is banished to a deserted island called Aiaia, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts, and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus.
