Haven't read that one Debbie. I read Pompeii by Harris and didn't care much for it, too scientific for my taste.
Debbie - go to "search this forum" at the top and type in Imperium. You will get a variety of opinions on this book. I found myself a little overwhelmed but did give it a 4 out of 5.
I liked Pompeii.
I listened to Imperium and the sequel Conspirata, and loved them both.
Thank you for your patience
