A "diferent trek" for Saylor's Gordianus,
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. Although "Gordianus, the Finder" isn't doing his usual Detective work, he is still involved with "every-day life". He gets mixed-up with a "big batch of bad guys", due to his total sexual attraction to his personal "slave" (female).
What other book might you compare Raiders of the Nile to and why?
I don't know any other book to compare this one with, as I've not read anything that compares to Steven Saylor's specific twist on an early "Detective" who is living the life of a free-spirit, within the confines of the Roman Empire. I recommend all of Saylor's early works, where Gordanus is being a Detective in a place and time where there are no such labels... just tasks, (with little reward), that require 'smarts' and 'good luck'!
Which scene was your favorite?
Those where Gordianus has to take his lumps for being a "fool in love"!
If you could take any character from Raiders of the Nile out to dinner, who would it be and why?
Gordy's little chum and side-kick, Djet. He's a young, homeless, kid in a world where no one cares about Orphans, Street-People, or the plans and pains of others. People in that day and time, struggled just to survive on a daily basis. And the kid could use a good meal anyway!!!
