If you could sum up The Venus Throw in three words, what would they be?
Poison, murder and kinky sex.
What did you like best about this story?
I liked the character Clodia. I knew her and her brother Clodius from history. Saylor paints them into real people. They had a "reputation" and Saylor expands and fills in the blanks for them. I also liked Bethesda, we get to know her backstory.
Which character – as performed by Scott Harrison – was your favorite?
Clodia as one of the protagonists and Bethesda in a supporting role
Any additional comments?
When I started listening to the sub rosa series of books I disliked the narrator and thought that his voice grated and tended to over act the dialogues, but I got used to him and think he does a fair job. Don't let the negative reviews dissuade you.
I listen during my commute and look forward to it. If there's heavy traffic, even better.
I continued the Rosa sub Rosa series a little guarded after disappointment in Saylor's first book. This chapter of Gordiamous' life however was by far the best thus far in a series of steady progression in narrative detail, plot development and character building with each book.
I find myself now sneaking a few minutes here and there throughout my day to slip back into Ancient Rome and see how our protagonist and his family are doing.
I actually look forward now to my hourly commutes and all the traffic delays that come with them.
