I Also Recommend:
Not worth reading
I can appreciate a book being historically accurate. Add a little fiction that doesn't stray too far from the truth, and you have gold. But this book, described as being similar to the work of Steven Presfield, is in a word boring. I understand that people talk, that is fine, but when a bookjacket describes adventure and action, and all you get is a protagonist's inner strife, you feel cheated. All the characters did was talk, and talk, and then talk a little more. There is a brief spat on the sea, then more talking. Only toward the end do you get into any real action. If i wanted to read about Rome symposiums, then i would have bought a non-fiction book. Even the cover illustrates a soldier ready for war, yet you see very little.I rarely do not recommend a book to others, but this is one of my least favorite books i have read so far. I am sure the author is much better at writing than myself, but i wish i could get a refund for the ebook version i bought.
