  3. For those who want some ideas of what to try next after this book: The Illiad and the Odyssey (Homer) : The Illiad is the original tale of the Trojan War and its many players. If you have not already read it, it is a good next step to learn more about the original stories of the war. The Odyssey follows Odysseus after the events of The Illiad, and is a good companion to the Illiad (or a good book to pick up next if you want to find out what happened next with the wily leader). Circe (Madeline Miller) : If you liked the way this book was written and want to read more from the author, read her follow-up novel Circe. A retelling of the story of the well-known greek goddess, the book delves into her life and the difficulties she faces when her latent power is seen as a threat to even the gods. The Silence of the Girls (Pat Barker) : If you like Greek mythology but wanted to read about the Trojan War from a different, less romantic perspective, this is the book for you. Told from the perspective of Briseis, a queen who is taken captive and given to Achilles as a war prize, this book shows the more brutal side effects of the Trojan War on the women who couldn't fight, and a more balanced depiction of Achilles' actions. (TW: does not hold back in its depictions of war and the experiences of women taken captive during the war). The Library of Greek Mythology (Translated by Robin Hard) : If you were confused about all the different gods and families referenced in the book, or just want a refresher, this may be a good book to pick up. The book contains a complete history of Greek mythology, including the stories of heroes like Heracles, more information about Helen of Troy, etc.; it's a good place to start if one wants to have a more comprehensive introduction to Greek myths. @Kell suggested also trying the game Hades; based on Greek mythos, the player fills the shoes of Hades, God of the Dead, in a dungeon crawler adventure out of the Underworld. Made by the creators of Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre!
  4. @Book Club Thanks for coming everyone! As a follow-up to our chat, here are some suggested reads for everyone who enjoyed aspects of the book: If you really liked the author or the book as a whole, it's part of a series! The next entry is The Consuming Fire, and the last entry is The Last Emperox, which conveniently came out last month. If you like your sci-fi to delve into the repercussions of corporate monopolies on basic parts of life, try All Systems Red (Martha Wells). If you like your sci-fi to have a lot of political intrigue, try A Memory Called Empire (Arkady Martine). If you want to read some non-fiction about how real-world advances in transportation completely changed the way society functioned, try either The Transcontinental Railroad: The History and Legacy of the First Rail Line Spanning the United States  (Charles River Editors) or Railroaded: The Transcontinentals and the Making of Modern America (Richard White). If you really liked this book and wanted to see similar themes tackled in a darker tone, @Angst mentioned The Expanse series! Book One is Leviathan Wakes; the books have also been adapted into a TV show if you'd like to watch as you read. If you really liked the book and want to try similar books in other genres, @Saerryc mentioned The Goblin Emperor (Katherine Addison); this fantasy story includes a lot of the political intrigue and other themes you may have enjoyed in The Collapsing Empire. Feel free to suggest these and any other books you've been eyeing for next month!
