What did you love best about The Man with Two Names: A Novel of Ancient Rome?
An an amateur Roman History fan -- I loved how you are really experiencing, first-hand, in first person, how the Marian reforms affects every day roman life.
What did you like best about this story?
Gaius Marius in the flesh. Great dialogue and characterization of such a brash and interesting historical figure.
Any additional comments?
It wasn't long enough :). I want more. I really hope to see this materialize into a multi-book series with scrolls spanning everything from the Gracchi to the the rise of Augustus and beyond. Keep it up, very good stuff.

This book could have been much more enjoyable if the narrator's voice wasn't monotonous and if it did not sound as if he was a San Fernando Valley native. It was a distraction to the story such that I would pass upon any other book he has narrated. As for the story, it was only moderately interesting with little character development beyond the main two characters. Without giving away the ending, I was surprised when it arrived and felt like the author simply became tired and stopped writing.
