Herodotus LIVES!, 30 Oct. 2008
Having studied Herodotus in my youth, I found Justin Marozzi's book both fascinating and accessible. I wish this book had been on the curriculum's reading list as my test results would have been considerably higher! This enlightening author has brought Herodotus into real life context, achieving an accomplished literary agility between academic insight and layman comprehensibility. Marozzi has created something which at once is both entertaining and informative. A rare talent indeed. I will now seek out his other books and watch intently for future ones.
