Try it - you'll be glad you did
This book draws you in not only because of the exqusite detail but because of the human drama. You'll find yourself easily able to see the hustle and bustle of a live Pompeii. You'll see the characters as real people and you'll want to know more. You can almost smell the sulphur in the air as the climax builds.
One word of warning - if you listen to this in your car you'll find yourself sitting in parking lots reluctant to leave Pompeii and return to the real world. If you only enjoy it half as much as I did, it will be time well spent.
