Interesting5 star

This is an interesting book with some points about love I never considered prior to reading it. The layout and behavior of the characters seems to indicate or demonstrate what the points made in the text appear to us as in real daily life.55

A very interesting and impactful read on the subject of love as seen by Greek thinkers. Contrasts very well with current thoughts of love!55
