Circe Free Audiobook Download by Madeline Miller
This audiobook is about Circe, a powerful sorceress who was turned into a sea-creature by the goddess Hecate in order to save her from death. The story follows Circe as she struggles to regain control of her power after being abandoned by her mother and becomes attached to another human.
One summer in Rome, a young woman's hunger for magic sends her spiraling down a path that will change the course of history.
The Circe audiobook is narrated by the talented new voice of Circe, 'Perdita Weeks'. I was very excited to listen to this book. I have never read the epic poem The Odyssey but love the story of Circe and her power over men. The Circe audiobook made me rethink that whole story in a way that left me with a big smile and feeling inspired. 'Week' has a clear, powerful voice that's perfect for the male narration of The Odyssey but also makes sense as someone who is perfectly tuned into the female perspective on things.
Circe is a novel I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys Greek mythology and the epic tale of Odysseus. The book follows the journey of Odysseus as he returns home after fighting in the Trojan War, encountering many adventures on his long way back to Ithaca. Circe was magical and powerful—an enchantress who turned men into pigs and animals into monsters. She has allure that captivates even a hardened warrior like Odysseus.
Circe, a goddess-turned-witch, told her own story. She was the daughter of Helios and Perse, who had been living on the island of Aeaea since before humans existed. Her father Helios was the sun god and she was his most beloved creation. When she grew old enough to speak, she asked her father for a day of transformation into a human so that she could see what life is like on Earth. Circe spends years in exile among men studying their rituals and beliefs and gaining influence until she becomes a powerful witch in her own right.
The Circe audiobook is narrated by Perdita Weeks. I was a bit hesitant to listen to it myself because it sounded like another story about three witches and a warlock, but the narrator was very good.
