A Roman general would be chosen by The great Marcus Arelius. Marcus was put to death by his son Commodus. And Rome is under bad power.Can Maximus defeat Rome's maddest caeser?A general who becomes a slave, a slave that becomes a gladiator, in the arena, a hero will rise.

Gladiator follows the movie perfectly. There was nothing extra added to the storyline. It is a very good story to read but, I felt like I was watching the movie when I was actually reading the book.

Well, what can i say about a book that has the four virtues that are written on it: wisdom, justice, fortitude and temperance. A must own book. If you like love, courage, revenge and honor i have to say that this is YOUR book.

When I first saw the ad for this movie, I was taken in by the flashy effects, and thought it would be just another summer event movie. I was wrong. Gladiator was the best movie I have ever seen, bar none! The acting was phenomenal- particularly by leading man Russell Crowe (who should get an Oscar), Joaquin Phoenix, and Oliver Reed. The sweeping emotions and first rate portrayal of Rome at its worst and most corrupt were also a terrific part of the movie. I bough the book hoping it would in some way recreate the awe-inspiring experience the movie gave me, and I was not disappointed. From the opening pages, where the haunting scene of Maximus trailing his fingers through the wheat is described, to the explosive finale, this book will make you fear, cheer, curse, and cry (I speak from experience). I recommend this book to any and all!

This book so greatly portrays the realism of gladiator fights in the Roman times, and the bravery shown by leaders of this time such as the great Julius Caesar, or in this book General Maximus. This is a definite read, and I enjoyed it even more than the movie (that may be hard to believe).
