Customer Review

on 2 December 2003
I enjoyed reading this book very much. The story is simple and straightforward, greed and corruption in ancient rome. The characters never really have time to develope as the book is so short, most are stereotypes. The nice thing about the book is the ambience, there's a real feeling of what a roman town must have been like. I've only read 'Fatherland' before but this is something very different, though equally good. If you're after suspense and excitement then you may not enjoy this book. I think it's one of the signs of a good author when he can write a book in a different style to that for which he is known, and still succeed. I think this book meets that criterion. The book felt too short to me , as if there was too little material to work with, I'd have liked an extra 100 pages or so. I liked the ending.
