    eBook Helen Dunmore ê eBook Counting the Stars ePUB ´ Counting the PDF or ê wearedating.co.uk counting kindle, stars mobile, Counting the pdf, Counting the Stars ePUBThis book follows the historical characters of the poet Catullus and his lover Clodia during the Rome of Julius Caesar Catullus is involved with his scandalous lover who also happens to be married and he's a tortured artist writing poems about her and suffering the agony of not being able to marry her and be with her alwaysI enjoyed the descriptions of ancient Rome and its surrounds and the details of what life was like for the citizens and slaves of the day The inclusion of verses of Catullus' actual poems was a nice touch sprinkled throughout the book as the events that supposedly brought those poems about unfoldedThe story was enjoyable but I felt like it never really fully gripped me and it kind of just tapered off at the end

    eBook Helen Dunmore ê eBook Counting the Stars ePUB ´ Counting the PDF or ê wearedating.co.uk counting kindle, stars mobile, Counting the pdf, Counting the Stars ePUB Odi et amo I hate and I love Catullus's ambivalent feelings towards mea puella my girl Clodia poured out in his Lesbia poems This novel is the author's imagining of the course of their passionate affair Catullus is absolutely besotted and obsessed with the woman and she a brutal tease leading him on into the abyss There were a couple of subplots one involving the death of Clodia's husband due to a possible poisoning and Catullus's search to find what poison was used and who might have committed the murder also a section involving Catullus and his loyal freedman Lucius and a possible return to Catullus's home town to manage the family's property after the death of his brother I felt the course of the love affair has been overdone in literature The most interesting part to me was the investigation Even after discovering what kind of woman Clodia is Catullus STILL believes her lies Dun portrayed her as femme fatale practically as a psychopath at least completely amoral selfish man
