Light Bedtime Reading,
This review is from: Emperor (GOLLANCZ S.F.) (Paperback)
This story is little more than light bedtime reading that you can pick up and put down at a moments notice. It never really gets going and is more a chronicle of events set against the declining Roman Empire and emerging Christianity than a gripping novel that grabs your imagination and leads you to a climactic ending.
By the time I eventually reached the end I was still at a loss to understand the message that the author was trying to convey - because there is a message embedded in the story. Perhaps one has to be a believer to understand it though.
