Customer Review

on 29 November 2006
'He wasn't rich, he wasn't a king, an emeror or an inventor or anything like that. In fact Spartacus was just a slave. So why is it that 2000 years after he lived his name has inspired films, books and revolutions all over the world? Just why exactly is he dead famous?
Read on and find out how a shepherd boy from Thrace suffered the hardships of life as a Roman soldier, went on to face death every day as a gladiator, marched the length of Italy (twice) and led a huge army against the fearsome Roman legions..........'

175 pages, split into chapters:

From shepherd to soldier to slave
Glorious gladiators and bloody arenas
The big breakfast breakout
The glad-crater
The three thugs
No gold, just iron
Two consuls, four legions and a funeral
Rome or home?
Lethal lotteries and marine monsters
The wall of death
'I'm Spartacus!'

Written in a variety of fonts, with humorous black and white cartoon illustrations throughout.
