I have been studying classics for years and I have been studying the Odyssey for the same amount of time. A couple weeks ago I finished my last exam and I’m never going to study it again, which is both the best and worst thing I’ve ever realized. The second I saw this book I bought and it and I have loved reading it, being able to reconnect with characters that I already knew was incredible but seeing them in a new light was precious and beautiful,
I read this book from the point of view as someone who knows the mythical world, however Madeline Miller wrote this book for everyone; and so if you want to emerge yourself in a new world this book is perfect, it’s beautiful, elegantly written and emotional. Miller did these characters justice and so much more
