Book Description

6 Dec 2010 Horribly Famous
You've probably heard of Spartacus... He is dead famous for: *being quite a good gladiator *giving the Romans the run-around *looking an awful lot like Kirk Douglas But have you heard that Spartacus: *fought for the Romans as well as against them *once camped his army of rebel slaves inside a volcano *cut a deal with a bunch of double-crossing pirates Yes, even though he's dead, Spartacus is still full of surprises. Now you can read the inside story in Spartacus' secret diary, catch up on all the latest battle results in The Daily Gladius, and find out how to keep the mighty Roman Empire at bay with just a few trusty followers and a cunning plan. ...

'He wasn't rich, he wasn't a king, an emeror or an inventor or anything like that. In fact Spartacus was just a slave. So why is it that 2000 years after he lived his name has inspired films, books and revolutions all over the world? Just why exactly is he dead famous?
Read on and find out how a shepherd boy from Thrace suffered the hardships of life as a Roman soldier, went on to face death every day as a gladiator, marched the length of Italy (twice) and led a huge army against the fearsome Roman legions..........'

175 pages, split into chapters:

From shepherd to soldier to slave
Glorious gladiators and bloody arenas
The big breakfast breakout
The glad-crater
The three thugs
No gold, just iron
Two consuls, four legions and a funeral
Rome or home?
Lethal lotteries and marine monsters
The wall of death
'I'm Spartacus!'

Written in a variety of fonts, with humorous black and white cartoon illustrations throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 17 Aug 2014
By toorakian - Published on
Absolutely excellent. I read this book to my son and Spartacus became his number 1 hero. it is well-written, full of relevant historical detail, and,despite its length, moves along at a cracking pace. Moreover, Spartacus is so intrinsically interesting that most early adult readers will find this account of his life fascinating. I highly recommend this book. Certainly, one of the best in this (often) excellent series.
