Would you try another book from Jack Ludlow and/or David Thorpe?
I like Ludlow's work and have listened to several of his books. This was generally good, but the ending seemed a bit rushed and unrealistic. Thorpe's voice didn't seem to fit the story.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Roman: Vengeance?
The escape section early in the book was well written and gripping.
What didn’t you like about David Thorpe’s performance?
I didn't find any technical problems, but his voice just didn't seem to be a fit. It seemed too high pitched and cheerful for the characters and story. He was clear and easy to understand and did good work with some character voices. He just seemed miss-cast.
Do you think The Last Roman: Vengeance needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
It was obviously set up to be the first book in the series. I think the weaknesses in the story were due to the author trying to set up a plausible background for the future books with limited historical sources to rely on. The story of Belisarius and Justinian will be the real substance to the series. I look forward to the subsequent books.
