What a well performed story! For many years I have been fascinated with the tragic story of Pompeii. One can only imagine how horrific it must have been to experience it and die in such awful circumstances. The author created a believable fictional story, taking the reader into that time and keeping interest high.
I read the book a few years ago and have been wanting it in audio format for a while now. Well worth the wait although a few words are mispronounced in my opinion
A great story that allows you to glimpse the Roman world nearly 2000 years ago in a very realistic manner.

Having visited Pompeii recently, this was a must read. I wish I had read it before I went, I think I would have understood more about the people who lived there.

unpretensious - well written - the characters are bang on - prose is economical - lovely english - just a really fun adventure thriller set in the ancient world - i.m.o. harris was at his best when he wrote this one - it's an absolute cracker
What’s not to like. Robert Harris’ Pompeii rates with Lindsey Davis’ Falco series from an insight into the Roman world. Great narrator- five stars!
