What made the experience of listening to The History of Rome, Volume 2: Books 6 - 10 the most enjoyable?
Charlton Griffin's performance brings out the triumphs, disasters, religious rites, the plebeian successions, Patrician condescension, arrogance, and daring. The struggles of the kings of Rome, the patrician dominance, and finally the inclusion of the plebeians after the reorganization of the Roman Republic is vivid, captivating, and exciting. Charlton Griffin's narration is as splendid, possibly even better than his performance of Polybius's Rome and the Mediterranean vol. 1 and 2.
Would you recommend The History of Rome, Volume 2: Books 6 - 10 to your friends? Why or why not?
I would recommend the text for its overall dialogue and for the information which can be gained about the Carthaginians, Latins, Volscians, Sabines, Gauls, and other peoples. It is a well rounded history, of which most of the history is uncorroborated, but the majesty in which the history is written and narrated makes up for any of those shortcomings (concerning the story, not actual history). This, of course means caveat emptor...buyer beware. If you love history for history's sake, then you will love it!!!!
Have you listened to any of Charlton Griffin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes I have, and it is as good as any other performance I have heard from Charlton.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
All of it!!!!
Any additional comments?
I will continue to purchase any books that are narrated by Charlton Griffin. Thank you Mr. Griffin.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
I wish somebody else would be reader of Greek and Roman literature and ancient history. Charlton Griffin is terrible
What did you like best about this story?
It is a classics. Enough said.
What didn’t you like about Charlton Griffin’s performance?
He does with great consequence mispronounce almost all Roman terms and names. Considering how many titles he is reader of it is astonishing that he has not learned something so fundamental
