This review is from: Augustus: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
History comes alive. A fast-moving but intelligent treatment of a dramatic period of world-history through the convincingly imagined eyes of many of the leading participants. Entirely different in pace and feel to "Stoner", but with essentially the same aim of assessing the value of an individual's life over its course. I enjoyed it immensely.
