5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Read, 20 July 2008
This review is from: Caligula (Paperback)
In the tradition of Gladiator and the mini-series Rome, I found Douglas Jackson's Caligula took me back to the ancient days of Rome with style so that I could almost breathe the heady air of the times and the Gladiator arena. Thrown into the mix is one Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, aka Caligula, who manages to make Hannibal Lecter look like a petty criminal underachiever. It is into Caligula's court that Rufus enters, trainer of the Emperor's Elephant, and Cupido, Rome's greatest gladiator, as the two become embroiled in a plot to assassinate the Emperor. I found that Caligula took me right away into Ancient Rome for the whole book and it was a fantastic read being transported there. I'm really looking forward to whatever comes next from Rome and Douglas Jackson's pen (or quill!).
