3. Chaireas and Kallirhoe

Chaireas and Kallirhoe
Chariton
I loved this one! Yes, I know it is overly dramatic and romantic but it also happened to be thrilling and intriguing.  I actually stood up and starting pacing during the trial scene.  
This book is about the troubled romance of Chaireas (who is a domestically violent lover), Kallirhoe (who for some reason thinks she can get pity because she is pretty), and Dionysos (a clueless sucker).  Maybe I was just desperate for something resembling romance that didn't involve rape after Metamorphoses!
RATING: ****-
