I was disappointed with this book even though I've read Vergil and love classical history. This story is so insipid I almost put it down. I finished it and would call it Le Guin's worst work. I have come to expect so much more from her. It was a very intriguing character to write about (hence the extra star) but failed for me to be a gripping story. I found I could care less about any of the characters who were all so predictable.

Yes, I'd call it a historical romance, too and file it under chick lit (which I don't read by the way despite being a "chick").
