Customer Review

on 21 November 2012
I have previously read 'Augustus: son of Rome' by the same author, and really enjoyed the story with just a few reservations, I was looking forward to seeing how he had done with this 'sort of' prequel.
Well, not very well, if truth be told. Firstly, it is very short; I read it in an hour, so I don't think it is good value for money at all. Secondly, it is a very clichéd story, with no originality, full of recognisable phrases, which are laughable in some of the circumstances. There really is no character development, people appear to serve the purpose of the very basic story.
It has clearly not been proof-read or edited, as there are grammatical, formatting or spelling errors on virtually every page.
All in all, very disappointing. The author states at the end that the next instalment of the Augustus story will be delayed, seemingly by more episodes of this story. I suggest he thinks again, and concentrates on something that might actually be worth his efforts.
