“I wish I had known,” I said the first day, when he had showed it to me. “I almost did not come, because I did not want to leave it.”

He smiled. “Now I know how to make you follow me everywhere.”

is how they knew she was quite stupid. Brides did not smile.

When I was delivered, a boy, he plucked me from her arms and handed me to a nurse. In pity, the midwife gave my mother a pillow to hold instead of me. My mother hugged it. She did not seem to notice a change had been made.

¡Es un libro fantástico! Está repleto de pasajes de la mitologia griega pero esta vez desde el punto de vista de Circe que en la mitologia era sólo una "bruja que convertía a los hombres en cerdos".

Este libro nos enseña que la bruja también tenía una historia.

    Truly captivating book from start to finish. It is so beautifully written that I caught myself re-reading some sentences over and over again mesmerized by all the choices of words that fit so perfectly together in a sentence. All the descriptions and all the conversations of the characters are so well-thought of and it is safe to say that this is one of the best books I've ever read. Nearing the end I couldn't stop crying and then I cried even more after reading last words. A masterpiece.
