Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
While the narration is acceptable, the author plays fast and loose with history. Many anachronisms exist in the story. It is unfortunate, as it would have set up well as a comparison to the Populares vs Beni politics of Caesar???s time. The series doesn???t break well in the books. None of the characters are particularly well rounded, nor can one sympathize much with any of them.
What was most disappointing about Jack Ludlow???s story?
A true historical type fiction such as found in Sayer's books or in Colleen McCullough's books would have been very interesting. Instead, one is presented with a story that is mildly interesting but lacks any real historical footing.
What three words best describe Nick Boulton???s voice?
acceptable, understandable, clear.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
Well researched historical fiction is a joy. Sadly this series falls short.
