This is a book that should never have been published. It lacks a strong story line. The narrative is trite. There is no action, no moral, and no insight. With no clear purpose, the editor should have sent the manuscript back to the author. Sad business this.

This book is one in which the author tries to weave the life stories of various individuals into the scenery and time of anchient Rome and Carthage. The main characters in various preposterous situations keep running into each other and thus interweaving their experiences of the time. This is a fine book for primary school entertainment, but grossly lacking any depth or insight into the times. A very superficial and disappointing waste of valuable time, unfortunately.
If only Alan Furst or John La Carre had written a book on this time in history.
Finally, the recording would repeatedly skip back by 5-10 seconds, this occurred numerous times and was in the recording itself. Thus, adding insult to drudgery and tedious frustration.
