I love this series. Great characters, intimate knowledge of everyday life in Ancient Rome. It's like taking a historical tour through the period with a street wise guide. Wonderful performance by Gordon Griffin.
As usual an enjoyable trip back to Rome, one which is hardly distinguishable from today, same slick money makers, same slap dash landlords and agents, oh the punishments are different, the threat of being fed to the lions as punishment for murder sounds awful but murders occurred then as now. The title took me a while to connect, very clever :)
What did you like best about Venus in Copper? What did you like least?
The historical details of life in ancient Rome A weaker story compared to the previous books
Would you recommend Venus in Copper to your friends? Why or why not?
yes but read the previous books first
What does Lindsey Davis and Gordon Griffin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
The first book had a different narrator, with a cheeky Cockney style which suited Falcos character better. That said I I have warmed to Gordon and look forward to reading more of the series
Do you think Venus in Copper needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
of course...I think I'll follow Falcos adventures for years to come..I'm hooked!
Any additional comments?
I'm a Sci Fi book kinda guy so this is a new adventure for me but one I am thoroughly enjoying!
Good performance and great story progressing how love conquers class boundaries. I really enjoyed the story which, having been unimpressed and scathing of the narrators effort on book 2 was no barrier to eager listening to this book 3. Great job by both author and narrator. It has me questioning now if I really am a romantic at heart ...no, surely not !
can't wait to listen to another story by Lindsey Davis. Strong female characters with a touch of humour.
