By reading the book I gained an insight on what living conditions during Rome's tyranny may have been. The struggles of rebellion, tribal pride, and honor are accounted in cryptic detail. It was an interesting read.
If you are a history buff like me, ya gotta read this! It's hard to put down. You wish you were there to see it first hand, but this yarn is as close as you can come. At least here there is no danger of being splattered with blood!
