5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and Amusing, 23 May 2014

Terry Deary hit upon a winning formula for the children’s series Horrible Histories and he has certainly carried it through to this adult book. The book is both interesting and amusing in equal quantities. The book is full to the brim with true and equally important, interesting facts about Ancient Rome. I know I keep using the word interesting, but that is what shines through in this book these facts are interesting.

If only history had been told in this way at school there would have been a lot less children praying for the end of their history lesson. I would say the book is a terrific read, but it is in fact a compilation of facts rather than a story. It can be read occasionally, picking out the odd fact, but I read it from front to back in quick time and loved it.
