5.0 out of 5 stars Roman Sam Spade, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Falco on His Metal : Venus in Copper, The Iron Hand of Mars and Poseidon's Gold (3 title omnibus) (Paperback)
Lindsey Davis write her characters in such a modern way, with feelings and expectations that we all share, that it comes as a shock to remember sometimes that the stories are set in Rome of 74AD.
The books are full of detail as to how badly built five-story houses fall down and how it is necessary on moving into an apartment to build your own cooking stove - just like a brick barbecue. Interesting too as to how the different strata of society live together, slaves becoming property owners and plebs trying to get on the ladder to being middle rank.
All the books are really interesting and I would recommend them to anyone who likes to know how others lived.
