    The Roman Republic was one of the most remarkable achievements in the history of civilization. After its founding in 509 BCE, the Romans refused to allow a single leader to seize control of the state and grab absolute power. The Roman commitment to cooperative government and peaceful transfers of power was unmatched in the history of the ancient world. But by the year 133 BCE, the republican system was unable to cope with the vast empire Rome now ruled.

    Story

    This is a very well-researched book, and if you’re already interested in Roman history, and have an active imagination, you’ll really enjoy the read. Unfortunately, while the story is dramatic, the writing is a bit dry. This is like a fantastic lecture from a great professor, but it’s still a lecture. Overall, I learned a ton, and I’d recommend this to any lover of history, but perhaps not someone new to nonfiction writing.

    Find out just how odd things get in this hilarious story of time travel and breakfast cereal, expertly told by Newbery Medalist and best-selling author Neil Gaiman.

    Story

    What an unexpected, charming little story! This is definitely aimed at children, but it put a big smile on my face and, as a parent, made me want to up my storytelling game ;)
