This book is good but the narrator seems to be non enthusiastic about it and leaves the listener confused when there is not enough time gaps between paragraphs and chapters.
A great couple of stories that merge seamlessly giving much of the atmosphere of Rome in the last part of the 6th century BC. Strangely enough, I found the British regional accents for the characters a bit disconcerting particularly the fact that the different readers for the two books used different accents for the same characters lead to inconsistency. I found the lowland Scots accent for Hiero of Syracuse a hoot. However that said I look froward to the next installment - keep it up John.
This second part of the tales of Atticus seize this truely remarkable and engaging character's further rise up the ranks of the republics fledgling navy. Having wet my appetite to the intrigues of the Roman navy and senate in Ships of Rome, Captain of Rome is a smorgasbord of rich imagery, well-crafted plot, historical accuracy and glorious characters. I have relished every moment thus far and can't wait to get stuck into the next instalment.
