Spartacus part 1
on 29 April 2013
I have only given this 3 stars for 2 reasons. One of which isn't the authors fault.
This is a well known film that anyone that has any interest in Roman culture would have seen many times, it would be very difficult to read the book without comparing the book to the film. In this case this book didn't give me anything that I didn't already know, although the story was slightly different it wasn't a big enough difference to make the book exciting.
The second problem is splitting the book into 2, this isn't justified. The story isn't far enough removed from the film to have me checking the released lists in the hope that number 2 has been published. In fact I'm happy enough to wait until it is dropped into the 99p category before buying it. A shame really as I really like the authors other work to date.
