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 would have made Iron and Rust (Throne of the Caesars, Book 1) better?
There are some interesting parts, but more often than not the narrative drags. Not consistently entertaining; often slips into tedium and the mundane. Too many names to remember; too many unrelated scenes, to the point that one stops paying attention.
Has Iron and Rust (Throne of the Caesars, Book 1) put you off other books in this genre?
No. Just this series.
What three words best describe Colin Mace’s performance?
Loud, then whispers.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
Unusual Anglization of some Latin pronunciations. You don't hear, for example, RO-man-EYE-tus rather than Ro-MAN-ee-TAS every day. Causes a few double takes.The volume of the audio is uneven. One finds oneself reaching for the volume control because one moment it will be loud and the next it will fade to a whisper.
