I gave up just over half way through the book. I could have read a history book and gotten the same result. This book is 90% dialogue between two people. Of that 90%, 90% is Jack rattling on for paragraphs at a time and Costas uttering one sentence replies egging Jack on. The historical angle is interesting, but as one other reviewer put it, the book is mind numbing.

This book was like a very large jigsaw puzzle, fun at first but got old about halfway through. Made you want to finish to find out what happens but I wanted to be finished. It was like the author wanted to cram too much into one book.

If Costas has to be explained everything, I would not trust him with my life on dives. The books are too forced. I can't even finish it. Sorry. I really liked his first book. I would really like his books if Jack didn't have to explain everything to Costas, so we could find the connection plausible. I'm confused on this book. Is it about Boudica, a "Nazarene" , Claudius, Pliny, or church. But what church. I wonder if it just a bunch of names and forced to find a connection.

After reading my third David Gibbins book I finally realize who Costas and Jack remind me of.... Sherman (Costas) and Mr. Peapody (Jack) from Rocky and Bullwinkle. 450 pages of history.

There is an AWFUL lot of murmuring in this book -- and I do mean awful.  Characters don't speak in this book, they murmur.  Seriously.  Every other page or so, someone is murmuring.  Why not say, speak, intone, whisper, declare, impart, tell, utter, mutter, or even yammer?  Good god, I'm a little more than halfway through and I can't stand all the murmuring already!  Mr. Gibbons, please, please, please find a better editor if you cannot pick up a thesaurus.

What a great spin on history, I was disappointed that the premise was not factual since it was such a great story! However, I truly enjoyed the intrigue and clues along the way. Right up there with the Atlantis story!
