5.0 out of 5 stars Great storytelling, 3 Dec 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Rome and Italy: The History of Rome from its Foundation: Rome and Italy Bks.6-10 (Classics) (Paperback)
Livy has a knack for breathing life into historical characters and is a natural storyteller in a way you rarely find among historians. I've seldom been entranced by historical writing in the way I was reading this book.
The book encompasses a big chunk of Roman history and Livy covers the ground at quite a pace so it can be a bit of a rollercoaster. As a crash course on Pre-imperial Roman History I doubt it can be beaten.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great read!, 25 Sep 2010

This review is from: Rome and Italy: The History of Rome from its Foundation: Rome and Italy Bks.6-10 (Classics) (Paperback)
after reading Livys first book i was very much looking forward to this one and it didnt disappoint. pretty much every part of the book is great, and the detail he goes into in describing events, people or towns is just amazing.

it is a travesty that the rest of the books he wrote didnt make it through time!

This review is from: Rome and Italy: The History of Rome from its Foundation: Rome and Italy Bks.6-10 (Classics) (Paperback)
A well annotated translation of this text, which of itself provides a personal, politically skewed narrative to this Roman history
