Ariadne
Ariadne | Jennifer Saint
139 posts | 90 read | 2 reading | 105 to read
A mesmerizing debut novel for fans of Madeline Miller's Circe. Ariadne, Princess of Crete, grows up greeting the dawn from her beautiful dancing floor and listening to her nursemaid's stories of gods and heroes. But beneath her golden palace echo the ever-present hoofbeats of her brother, the Minotaur, a monster who demands blood sacrifice every year. When Theseus, Prince of Athens, arrives to vanquish the beast, Ariadne sees in his green eyes not a threat but an escape. Defying the gods, betraying her family and country, and risking everything for love, Ariadne helps Theseus kill the Minotaur. But will Ariadne's decision ensure her happy ending? And what of Phaedra, the beloved younger sister she leaves behind? Hypnotic, propulsive, and utterly transporting, Jennifer Saint's Ariadne forges a new epic, outside the traditional narratives of heroism and glory that leave no room for women.

Enjoyed it!
The story itself wasn't my favorite of the Greek retellings, but the writing was good, I would absolutely read another by this author.

I‘m very late to #wrapup #AwesomeApril for no reason other than I kept forgetting! Anyway, I wanted to finish Ariadne and maybe whatever else came off the hold list or caught my fancy, as well as make progress on the other books I have going.

I finished Ariadne and thought it was fine. Certain parts I liked a lot, but overall it kinda rubbed me the wrong way. Circe is better! Just sayin‘

I also finished a mystery and read some other chapters.

squirrelbrain Circe was definitely better! 4w

julesG @TrishB It's a retelling that's very very close to the original source. There's absolutely nothing new here. Ariadne is a wet blanket, and I am still wondering whether the "feminist debut" part of the book actually just refers to the sex of the author. 1mo

Bailedbailed

It's the morning for Ariadne reviews @squirrelbrain @Caroline2
I decided last night for an 'active' bail on this one (normally my bails are passive, i.e. me not being bothered to go back). I didn't like this one - it felt overwritten, overwrought, melodramatic. I feel mean to the author, because I've never written a book so who am I to judge, but it felt quite high school... 😬 Definitely YA vibes. And I really enjoy Greek myths, so disappointed.

rockpools Oh goodness! I feel like we don‘t often see bails from you, Emma. YAish might just be what I can cope with right now though. (Obviously I haven‘t started it yet!) 1mo

This is a soft pick for me; I liked it but it didn‘t wow me. Like you Caroline, I think there have been a few too many mythology retellings recently and this one does suffer from (my) comparisons with Madeline Miller and Pat Barker.

This one tells the women‘s perspective on the more famous stories of the Minotaur, Icarus (in passing) and Dionysus. It just felt a little bit simplistic and almost YA.

Strong start, the prologue hooked me. The rest of the book was not as strong but still captivating. I liked how Ariadne and Phaedra have distinct voices.

Unlike some retellings, this was very readable and I actually wouldn't mind if it's longer.

Looking forward to reading Elektra.

Before Covid19, my #BookDepository orders usually arrive in 2-4 weeks. But when I placed an order in Mar 2020, it didn't arrive until after 3 months. Haven't ordered since then.

Fast forward to 2022, it seems it's back to normal. I ordered these on Feb 28th and they're here now!

These actually arrived at my local post on Mar 16th but were only delivered today. Anyway, yay #bookhaul! 🥳

All a book blurb needs to say is "Greek retelling" and I instantly want to read it. This was such a great read too. Stories involving the Minotaur always intrigue me, and this book told from the perspective of his sisters was adventurous and heartfelt.

This book destroyed me. Truly a retelling to read. The middle part was where this story really shone, and where the writing was at its best. I thought I had a few more pages for a spectacular end to this, but I was a bit disappointed to see the Acknowledgements page already. 🥲

In any case, please do not compare it to Circe. That book had its own merit, and this one did too. The memoir-like narrative was what kept me turning the pages.

asterese I'm familiar with the myth of the titular character. To see her story expounded further in this book just brought that myth to life in a new way.

“When I was a child, I trusted the gods,” I heard myself say. “But Poseidon sent us the Minotaur, and my father stood by. When Theseus came, I thought he was not like them. But he was worse—for at least they never pretended to be what they were not.”

I really love the beautiful writing in this book. 🥺

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ariadne‘s retelling is a scathing examination of the price women pay for men‘s sins. I wasn‘t familiar with this myth and loved experiencing it through a female-centric perspective. I was entranced by the beginning with the Minotaur storyline, and my jaw dropped a few times during the exhilarating and tragic ending, but the middle lagged a little for me. #BOTM #botmbacklist #botmbacklog

Fans of Circe & The Silence of The Girls will become fans of Jennifer Saint's Ariadne. A heartbreaking tale of two sisters living in a world ruled by men. Saint has kept the Greek story of Theseus & the minotaur as a thread but has weaved a great tapestry of all the other characters around it leaving his thread dull in comparison to Ariadne.

Mehso-so

This novel is lush and symbolic, stuffed with decadent sounds and scents. We‘re immediately introduced to the central theme: that men and gods will trample on women, whose suffering serves as footnotes to their legends. There is a constant sense of destiny creeping, enveloping the characters within it and tugging us along. I knew the story of the Minotaur, but barely a third of the way through, this story is over.
(cont in comments)

sophies_little_library (1/2) Ariadne and Phaedra must carry on living through the consequences, the dark coda to the myth I had never heard. If you‘re looking for a rich, moody Greek retelling, Ariadne is a good choice. That being said, I don‘t think it stands up to Circe (though, really, what does?). I didn‘t find Ariadne or Phaedra compelling as narrators: Ariadne is incredibly passive, and doesn‘t grow or learn until the final scene. 4mo
sophies_little_library (2/2) Phaedra‘s story is told over such broad time jumps that I struggled to identify with her. Neither felt unique or psychologically rich. While the emphasis on female suffering is particularly apt for this myth, this isn‘t a new theme: Silence of the Girls explores the devastation of war much more viscerally, while Ariadne seems to shy away from this. That being said, it‘s lush, it‘s gothic, and it‘s a good addition to Greek women‘s stories. 4mo

Confused on how I feel about this story. After doing some research, I found it does match up well with the Princess‘s mythos (at least, 2 mixed together). It‘s a story of two girls not knowing what love was growing under King Minos and how that affects their womanhood desires on men. Maybe it‘s just her mythos, but I didn‘t feel much out from it. Felt run down and just depressing how much she was belittled.

Such a busy holiday vacation these past few weeks. This book being slow has not helped. Although this has stuck with me. She feels no power as Princess to be, because she is a girl and mot a man. Classic sexism back in those days, even being a new perspective of Adrianne‘s life under tranny and left abandoned. So her story is already know by those who know Greek tellings

Meh. This book really lost the plot after a strong beginning. I could not emphasize with Ariadne‘s fascination for Dionysius at all, the side plot with her sister fell flat and the ending left me disappointed.

At least this gives me an excuse to post another picture of Park Sanssouci.
