it was ok
bookshelves: historical-fiction, historical-fiction-gay

Throughout the novel I felt as though I was missing half the story because I was not moved to look up all the historical references that are peppered throughout the book with little to no explanation. Add to that the strange formatting of quotations in to one long paragraph with unclear demarcations to indicate who is speaking to who and the book became a serious slog about halfway through. I stumbled on this book mainly because I enjoy m/m stories and had really enjoyed The Charioteer but ultimately the relationship here was pretty boring and my interest in Greek history too minimal to enjoy it.
