I also found the story to be beautifully written. I liked that Swirsky switched point of view between Adriana and Lucian, because it made the relationship between the characters so much easier to understand. It was easy for me to feel Adriana's pain, yet it was also easy for me to see why Lucian had to go.
I also love the use of the title. All three words "Eros, Philia, Agape" are all Greek words for love. I took a psychology-tastic quiz one time that determined what kind of lover you were (fun times in my public speaking class actually)
eros= Sexual, erotic love, romantic love
philia= love as friends
agape= self-sacrificing love
I think it's interesting the the author explores all three types of love throughout the story.
What kind of love do you think that each of the characters felt for one another?
