Publisher's Summary

Livy continues his magnificent epic, with Rome in complete ruin after the Gallic invasion and sack of the city in 310 B.C. Led by Camillus, one of Rome's great heroic patricians, the city regains her self-confidence and once more becomes the leader of the Latin people.

Painstakingly rebuilding alliances, forging friendships, cementing relations among her own people, and fighting endless wars, Rome soon becomes the dominant power among the fractious Italic tribes on the Latin plain. For 50 years, the Romans maintain political and economic stability while pursuing an aggressive stance toward the other, more distant, warlike Italic peoples. Rome is under constant threat of invasion from many quarters and her disciplined soldiers are kept in perfect training. And they need to be.

After many decades, the Romans finally manage to conquer the Etruscans and the mighty Samnites, at last bringing most of the Italian peninsula under their control. Livy's The History of Rome continues in an additional four volumes.

    Story
    "Titus Livius Patavinus comes alive!!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to The History of Rome, Volume 2: Books 6 - 10 the most enjoyable?

    Charlton Griffin's performance brings out the triumphs, disasters, religious rites, the plebeian successions, Patrician condescension, arrogance, and daring. The struggles of the kings of Rome, the patrician dominance, and finally the inclusion of the plebeians after the reorganization of the Roman Republic is vivid, captivating, and exciting. Charlton Griffin's narration is as splendid, possibly even better than his performance of Polybius's Rome and the Mediterranean vol. 1 and 2.


    Would you recommend The History of Rome, Volume 2: Books 6 - 10 to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the text for its overall dialogue and for the information which can be gained about the Carthaginians, Latins, Volscians, Sabines, Gauls, and other peoples. It is a well rounded history, of which most of the history is uncorroborated, but the majesty in which the history is written and narrated makes up for any of those shortcomings (concerning the story, not actual history). This, of course means caveat emptor...buyer beware. If you love history for history's sake, then you will love it!!!!


    Have you listened to any of Charlton Griffin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have, and it is as good as any other performance I have heard from Charlton.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All of it!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I will continue to purchase any books that are narrated by Charlton Griffin. Thank you Mr. Griffin.

    "Terrible performance"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I wish somebody else would be reader of Greek and Roman literature and ancient history. Charlton Griffin is terrible


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is a classics. Enough said.


    What didn’t you like about Charlton Griffin’s performance?

    He does with great consequence mispronounce almost all Roman terms and names. Considering how many titles he is reader of it is astonishing that he has not learned something so fundamental
