A brilliant book, spoiled by the spell checker!
on 14 December 1999
A gripping read. McCullough never seems to put a foot wrong in her 'Masters of Rome' books. The obvious result of much research melded with fiction that wouldn't let you put the book down........ except for the numerous 'wrong words' in the text (paperback) that appear to have been 'corrected' by an errant spell checker. So distracting and annoying that the book hit the wall twice and lost 2 stars! I can't wait for 'The October Horse' but I hope the publishers employ a proof reader!
