#QOTD – Do you read mythological retellings?
I have loved to read Hindu mythological retellings, but this was my first attempt with the Greek mythology. I had some familiarity with Greek mythology, and vaguely remembered Circe from the Odyssey, but Circe by Madeline Miller was such a refreshing and utterly, yet possible, side of the epic tale of the trials, and heroism attributed to males.
This book made me realize that even if you are one of the most powerful god’s child, you have certain expectations on your traits and career that you need to fulfill. You are not born knowing what you are supposed to do. You still have to find your calling. You are still susceptible to the lustful eyes of a man, and you might not always turn them into pigs!
