I read Circe earlier this year and wasn‘t expecting this novel to be on par. I was wrong! The sack of Troy as told by the Trojan women enslaved by the Greeks...but so much more! War as experienced by women; the triangulation of greed, corruption, and honor; love, passion, rage, grief, revenge, and redemption; history through the eyes of the conquered. I will be thinking of Briseis and her sisters in war for a long time. 5/5⭐️

CoffeeCatsBooks Oh, this sounds like just my sort of book! 2w

This was so much better than I expected.

I was expecting a simple retelling of the Iliad from a woman's perspective. I was not expecting something so realistic and feminist. Something that speaks to the truth of war for women. Something that makes it so clear how courageous women have always been in ways that are not acknowledged as such but rather are portrayed as a sign of their weakness.

I loved it!

“Would you really have married the man who'd killed your brothers?

Well, first of all, I wouldn't have been given a choice. But yes, probably. Yes. I was a slave, and a slave will do anything, anything at all, to stop being a thing and become a person again.

I just don't know how you could do that.

Well, no, of course you don't. You've never been a slave.”

We speak so readily of the bravery of men in war, but only use the word survival in reference to the women who are their victims. Sometimes to keep living is the greatest act of courage.

BookwormM Wow very profound 3w
Zoes_Human @BookwormM Thank you. It's very much inspired by the beginning of this book. Pat Barker makes it all so clear how very brave women were to face the consequences of war that supposedly brave men forced upon them. Even though I knew the realities of war (as much as anyone who has never experienced it can) before reading this, I have never considered it in this way until last night. I'm impressed with this novel so far. 3w

Slow start but I got more interested in Briseis and Patrocles as the story went on. The Trojan War from the POV of the women captured during the war. This focused on the dirt and blood and disease and the ugliness of the war but it did take in moments of kindness and complicated human connections.

This novel tells the story of the Trojan War largely from the perspective of Briseis, Achilles‘ war ‘prize‘. This is not a romantic retelling, it details the harsh realities faced by women captives. My only qualm with the novel? While Briseis‘s story fills most of the pages, there are some chapters told from the perspective of Achilles. They weren‘t needed. Achilles has received enough ink throughout history. He doesn‘t need more. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

Beautifully told and harrowing account of the Trojan War from the perspective of Briseis, a Trojan princess given as a slave to Achilles. The only thing that stopped this being a 5 star read for me was that I didn‘t think the chapters from Achilles perspective were as powerful - I was disappointed to move away from Briseis perspective. That‘s a small quibble though, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Really enjoyed this one, yes it‘s not really feminist as the girls don‘t really get any benefits or any say do they 🤷‍♀️ thoughts of what it is like to be totally powerless.
This is my first Barker, maybe I‘ll get to the Regeneration trilogy now that‘s been on my tbr forever.

Melissa_J I have an interest in this one, but am a little hesitant because I bailed on the first book of the Regeneration trilogy. 2mo
TrishB I haven‘t read any others- but this is a really easy quick read (IMO!) what didn‘t you like about Regeneration? 2mo

CarolynM @Maria514626 I absolutely adored Regeneration. I started The Eye in the Door but found it quite confronting and it was making me feel sick. Actually, I was newly pregnant and it was morning sickness but it wan't great subject matter in that condition so I put it aside.

Magslhalliday Pointing out how the ‘heroic‘ manly war stories impact on women, and how little power women had, could be seen as feminist. Given a lot of people trace what a ‘good‘ society looks like back to Greek culture it shows how built in misogyny can be. Would recommend the short ‘Women and Power‘ by Mary Beard as an accompaniment. ;) (edited) 2mo

Finished this last night. I liked this point of view of the Trojan War. The story was good and the characters were ok. The MC bothered me a bit and I‘m not 100% sure why. There was something about her.
My biggest issue was that the narrator changed randomly like in the middle of the chapter it would be a different person perspective, it would go from first to third and back and then to second. It got hard to follow at times.
Over all 👍🏼

This is a retelling of The Iliad from the point of view of Briseis, a former queen and the war prize of Achilles.

Yikes, what a letdown 😕 Even tho I‘d seen a handful of disappointed reviews, I still expected to like this. Portions of it were sharp & insightful, factually strong, & the *idea* is great, but the overall execution was so off the mark. Why claim to give us a feminist retelling yet be so focused on the same old dudes? Why mention “the girls” if we get one girl & all she does is wander around a camp & suffer? Hype fail for me, sadly. 2/5 ⭐️

Current book, new book and kitty footsies!

I am engrossed in The silence of the Girls, it‘s is so awful yet I can‘t help but read it and hope for better things for the main character and all the women.

The new book is The Sisters of the Winter Wood, the description sounded a bit similar to The Bear and the Nightingale which I loved so hopefully it will be good!

An interesting POV of an infamous story... could‘ve been a great discussion at Book Club, but I had Mr. Mansplain right next to me - trying to convince me that Greek women DID have voices... bc his grandmother may have had an arranged marriage, but she always had a lot of opinions 🙄 Not the same, bro, not the same. Good book though, a few triggering images, but overall a relatable commentary.

I really enjoyed this version of the Trojan War, as experienced by Briseis, enslaved as a war prize by Achilles. The book draws attention to the many on the sidelines whose feelings are left out of the great stories. The emotions throughout are deeply felt and complicated, and Briseis is allowed to have difficult and sometimes contradictory feelings.

I really enjoyed this on audio - I always looked forward to getting back to it! No Greek mythology background required as it‘s a fresh look at the sacking of Troy, or really the waiting for the sacking of Troy, from the perspective of a female slave of royal background won by Achilles. The end is perhaps a little unrealistic, but its definitely a pick!

This is my first Pat Barker book, need to do some investigating!

One of the things I love about Pat Barker‘snovels is that she writes with such poignancy, and so elegantly about the human costs of war. In SILENCE OFTHE GIRLS she takes on the final days of the Trojan War given us the unhappily entwined lives of Achilles and the stolen woman: Briseis.

The “silent girls” are the women taken as slaves, some awarded to the warriors, some enslaved and discarded to fend for themselves.

Very highly recommended.

Just finished this and haven‘t made up my mind jet how I feel about this. This novel really demonstrates that this a man‘s world, and women doesn‘t have much value. This is the story of Achilles told though the eyes of Briseis when it‘s not told by Achilles himself. Briseis is Achilles slave.

This is shortlisted for this year‘s Women‘s Prize for Fiction.

Events of the Iliad focusing on the women who were captured by the Greeks, particularly Briseis who became a slave for Achilles.

While this was an interesting perspective to take, I feel like Pat Barker focuses on the war and the men even while writing about the women. It is interesting that it's up against Circe for the Women's Prize for Fiction because I like that one more.⤵️

ReadingEnvy To refresh my memory I re-read sections of Mythology by Edith Hamilton, who maintains the layer of how the gods influence these events (based on the texts by Homer and Euripides) that Barker excludes, except to show scenes between Achilles and his mother, and his obsession with the sea. In the end this is really his story. 5mo

Another book about history that will draw you in, as well as teach you some things you might not have known. It talks about the struggles of female slaves in the Greek war camps and how they were treated and takes you back to how they would have felt during that time.

The main character has a very interesting point of view and is a very good story teller as well.
