  1. Wonderful review! I am very glad you liked this. I am really looking forward to both retellings and I am so glad both made the longlist.

  2. Great review! I’ve read one book by Pat Barker (long ago in uni) and didn’t like it so I’ve always avoided her work since. But this sounds fascinating. And I love that cover!

  3. Great review! I enjoyed this one as well, a bit more than Circe. I would love to revisit The Silence of the Girls at some point though, because I read it the first time immediately after finishing The Iliad; I’m afraid Silence suffered a little for me as a result of having JUST read the same plot. I did love Briseis’s voice, but I think it’ll be more engaging if I come back to it with a bit more distance.
