I liked Mr. Sidebottom's "Warrior of Rome" series more as it had more "lively" plot and characters while this book is a longer version of the primary sources on the era it describes. I would certainly like more revisionist approach to this subject. though in technical sense the writing is still good.
I found it really hard to get in to this one at points I feels more like a narrative rather then a story that you can really Imerse yourself in to. to many long list of names ect.

What disappointed you about Iron and Rust (Throne of the Caesars, Book 1)?
I loved the Warrior of Rome series and while this was just as well written, the novel is more political, less focused on the military and lacks the near-death excitement of following Ballista.
What character would you cut from Iron and Rust (Throne of the Caesars, Book 1)?
I didn't know who to like. There is no main character and as the story jumps around the Empire I cannot engage with any of the characters as they move fleetingly through the narrative.
