I got this anticipating a speculative biography on Mithradates, but what I got was two beginning chapters almost entirely about the authors opinion on Rome and the indication that the author groups nearly every differing opinion in one large bucket the author dubs “Western”. I hoped that the book would get better and it did for a while, but towards the end she began to divert the topic to those individuals associated with Mithradates rather than the man himself. I would welcome any additional facts that would help me understand the subject, but I did not feel that I was gaining this understanding- I felt more like the author was writing two books; one about the Mithradates and a separate opinion piece. I read the work through, so I did not feel right returning it.
I liked the reader, he has a good documentary voice
The book itself could have remained on topic and been much shorter
The historical setting and accurate/believable references to daily life in ancient Rome
It's all about the voice acting with audio books- this one more or less nails it
This books stands by itself, but audible would be champs to procure the rest of the series...in order would be awsome.
anyone who is insensitive to the fight against AIDS
Zombies are ok, virus zombies are ok, AIDS zombies would just have to go--there is no way to really make up for that elsewhere in the book
