This is a pleasant and enjoyable read of Ancient Rome set in the time leading up to the destruction of Pompeii. The idea is intriguing but I think the story would have been better had it been told slower because at times it feels rushed. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I read The Pleasure Slave, sometimes the dialogue had a bit of a "now instead of then" feel but still extremely entertaining and a great addition to my Ancient Rome library.
