You don't have to be a fan of Greek mythology to enjoy and appreciate Madeline Miller's second novel.  Circe is a daughter of Helios, god of the sun.  Although, she is not a goddess,  she practices witchcraft and is immortal.  When she turns a rival into a monster, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island where she concocts potions and lives among lions and wolves.   Although she spends most of her years alone on Aiaia, she has some illustrious visitors-Hermes, Odysseus, Penelope and their son, Telemachus.  Throughout her life, Circe has been attracted to mortal men, even though she knows it will bring her nothing but sorrow.

Circe was a delightful read.  Miller's prose is simple and clear yet beautifully descriptive.  The characters come alive and the settings are vividly rendered.

Amos Decker is the Memory Man. In The Fallen, Amos is in Baronville with his partner Alex, visiting Alex's sister and her family.  A former mill and mining town with a crumbling economy, it isn't the most exciting place to visit.  However, Amos realizes something sinister is going on.  There have been 4 murders in the space of 2 weeks.  Amos stumbles on a double murder after being in the town for just a few hours.  Always aware of his ability to see what others miss, Amos feels it is his duty to help the police.  Murder comes too close in this terrific 4th book in the series.

I don't always like Meg Wolitzer's novels, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one.  There are four main characters in The Female Persuasion, and I found all of them real, complex and engaging.  Greer Kadetsky is smart,shy, ambitious and the daughter of two unmotivated, unconcerned hippies.  Her boyfriend, Cory, is smart, loving, creative and sensitive.  Her best friend, Zee, is a lesbian who wants to work for a cause, but not sure what it should be.  Greer's mentor, Faith Frank is a well-known, articulate leader of the women's movement.  Although Greer is the one who has a strong relationship with Cory, Zee and Faith, each of these characters can stand on their own.

At the core of this novel is the theme of how one decides what is the right path to choose in life, yet The Female Persuasion also depicts a lot of timely issues using engrossing, easy to read prose.

Paul, age nineteen, meets Susan, age forty-eight, when they are paired together for a tennis mixed doubles match.  Susan is married and has two daughters who are close to Paul in age.  Despite a number of differences, they fall in love and eventually move in together.  Although they encounter several set backs, they stay together for almost a decade.  Their love affair and its aftermath is described by Paul after Susan has died and he is a man in his sixties.  Throughout the narrative, Paul searches for a quote, phrase or idea that describes exactly what love is.

For those who want a fast paced plot, The Only Story is not for you.  However, I enjoyed Barnes's story, his characters and his digressions about love, memory and honesty.
