This review is from: Marching With Caesar-Conquest of Gaul: Conquest of Gaul (Kindle Edition)
An amazingly interesting story. The story just captures your attention. I find myself avoiding important house hold jobs just to sit and read this book instead, as it is so addictive (my fiancée was actually telling our friends that I've been ignoring her to read some stupid book! How dare she.)
It is well written and it just captures your imagination... the characters are very real, you can actually imagen that these people are real, that it was actually someone's diary.
The story has a very good plot, explaining everything where it has to, but leaving enough to your imagination to get you stuck reading it all day.
When things happen to the characters I felt myself reacting with the characters, feeling for them as if they were real.
There is also some very good historic knowledge in this book, I am finding things out that I didn't know even though I have been an avid Roman history buff for year.
I am a massive fan of ancient history novels, such as B Cornwell, S Scarrow, C Iggulenn, A Riches, S Turney etc, and this book defiantly can go head to head with any of them.
In conclusion, it has everything you could want, violence, comradery, romance, heart ache, and more violence.
It is certainly worth a read, you won't regret it.
