User Review  - Luke - Goodreads

Self-indulgent vanity project riven by poor pacing. Florid descriptions unfortunately add little substance to the paper-thin plot, and the awkwardly encyclopedic ending makes the Lord of the Rings ... Read full review

User Review  - Iuliu Rus - Goodreads

The author is a Nobel laureate, but I either don't get this book or this book is in fact, pure crap. Avoid at all costs, unless you are doing a PHd in classical literature... Read full review
