about the gladiators and the Coliseum. This book provides a lot of facts about the gladiator games and the background of the famous
entertainment of Rome. I also like how in the beginning of the book there is a timeline of different events that involve the gladiators in
Rome's history. The author organizes the book in a helpful way to understand and to make this book much more enjoyable to read. The
author also incorporates a storyline, which gives a sense of imagination to the book along with the facts. This book also has a few
pages dedicated to the Coliseum about it's incredible built, which helps answer some questions on my research paper. The few pictures
in the book is helpful to me to visualize different aspects of the gladiators history and the different parts of the Coliseum. The different
pictures of the weapons used and helmets worn by the gladiators grasped my attention even more because I became more interested
in the book. I also like how the book was not a bore to read with paragraphs of non-useful facts; it gave intriguing details of different
emperors, materials used in the arena of the Coliseum, and background stories.This book provides vivid detail and visual images
to help better the understanding of the history of the Coliseum and the gladiators.
