    Story
    (337)

    Mickey is startled to find a statue of Rose in a museum; a statue that is 2,000 years old. The Doctor realises that this means the TARDIS will shortly take them to Ancient Rome, but when it does, he and Rose soon have more on their minds than sculpture.

    "Fascinating Story"
    Overall

    This story has everything you could want in a Dr Who story: a wonderful mystery with sufficient twists to keep you on your toes, witty comments from the Dr, lively characters, and a fantastic villain. The narrator is great and tells an exciting story. I listened to this one twice in a row.

    Story

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des RĂªves, and it is only open at night.

    Pamela says: "The circus of your dreams"

    Story

    The narration by Jim Dale is superb and the plot is interesting but I found I couldn't make myself care about any of the characters. They seemed lifeless and bland.

    Story

    This is the incredible story of the world's greatest conqueror, a man who single handedly changed the course of history...and who was worshipped as a god. There have been many attempts in the 2,300 years since Alexander's death to tell the epic story of this enigmatic soldier. His deeds read like the stuff of legends. Of all the chroniclers of Alexander, and there have been many famous ones, including Plutarch and Ptolemy, none have given us a clearer and truer account than the one by Arrian.

    Theresa says: "A Superb Chronicle of Alexander"
    "Interesting but Dry"
    Overall

    The book tells a fascinating story but does so in a manner that some might find a tad on the boring side. The author often recounts long lists of names and orders of battles and can get dull at times. The book is almost entirely focused on military conquests and offers little insight into Alexander's personal or political life. Still, interesting enough for me to finish.
