    Detectives in Togas

    'Detectives in Togas' has to be one of the worst novels I have ever read. It lacked content, character, and every other element of a good read. <P>I found all of the characters in this book to be equally impersonal and one-dimensional, and could not bring myself to choose a least favorite character, let alone a favorite. In a well-written book, which I would not consider this to be, the reader gets to know each character on a higher, more personal level, as if they were real people versus fictional personia made up for the author's own use. I did not feel this way about any of the characters. </P> This book is catergorized as historical fiction, but I could not see what was very 'historical' about it. The knowledge shown in this book has got to be equal to that of a school age child plus a collection of interesting fact. I frankly could not say if this book is well researched or not, because I cannot see what educated American would hate to do more then five minutes or so of research for its writing-if even that. <P>I shall step down off my soapbox now, and allow another unfortunate reader a chance to rant. I do wish that anyone reading this now will choose to bypass reading this book in favor, say, for a root canal or car accident.</P>
