Hogwarts meets Spartacus,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gladiator: Fight for Freedom: 1 (Paperback)
I bought this as Im quite a Simon Scarrow fan, and loved his other work. Great! a whole new series of Roman tales. However, somehow I didnt realise that this was a book for teenagers from the on line description of the book.
When you see it you can tell instantly. On the back it states suitable for 11 years+, the text is at least double spaced, and the writing style is very accessible indeed. The heroes and heroines in this text seem to be teenagers.
I wish Id had this sort of book to read when I was a teenager, but dont get it if you think its adult reading.
I did read the book having bought it, and its an OK read for an adult. It took me less than a day. Hogwarts meets Spartacus indeed!
3 stars for adult reading, 4 star if you are buying this for a teenager.
