Makes the notion of diviners seem entirely plausible. An atmospheric beautiful layering of words with a bit of romance (of all things) thrown in. A seminal quote...

"My eye ran from island to island on the map of Greece. Naxos, Rhodes, Samothrace, Icaria... All that the map finally stood for were stories upon stories upon stories. Paris and his golden apple, Helen of Troy. The Oracle at Delphi whose shrine was inscribed with the most simple yet impossible advice ever offered, know thyself. And yes, my story, too. All we had ever been were stories, and saying ourselves, unveiling our stories, was the best, the only chance, at divining ourselves." (p. 291)
