I'm always impressed when a writer successfully brings to life a place and time so different from our own. Wade has a wonderful gift for evoking mood and atmosphere, coupled with an intelligent sense for drama. In The Last Stoic, he skillfully weaves two story lines together, his gentle use of philosophy allowing the reader to learn, but also to reach her own conclusions.
Tellingly, nearly a year after reading it, several scenes are still imprinted on my mind.
