Superb book I devoured this story that takes us to ancient Rome very well documented to recommend for Christmas to lovers of ancient history.
This novel reads very well. One feels propelled into the life of the Romans under the reign of Vespasian. The plots are well conducted, the dialogues are quite caustic and ironic. In short, a novel which offers a good entertainment and teaches us a lot of things about this time or reminds us of them if we had forgotten them a little.
I recommend this book. The plot is well conducted and the story very well documented. It takes a plunge into ancient Rome.
I took this book as I am a lover of historical novels, especially about the Roman period. I took it on vacation not thinking I would have time in a week to read everything, wanting to do something else as well. Well, I think I read it in three days, because I “had to” do something else in those moments of interruption. I would only like one thing “a sequel” because it deserves it.
Concerning the plot I find that one feels immersed, without being drowned in details. In the past I have visited Ostia Antica, not far from Rome, and I have imagined the protagonists in those places I visited.
The plot is fascinating, with twists and surprises. If it is only a hobby for the author to write this kind of book, I wish him all the free time he can to write more.
I highly recommend it!
Very good historical novel well documented a sequel would be welcome to read urgently this is great
I really appreciated this very well documented book on Roman life in all its aspects. The story is very well written.
very good novels, pleasant to read, realistic, considering the difficulties of ancient Rome, to recommend.
This book can be read in one go. It is very well documented, the characters and their lives at that time are very well rendered.
