    Story
    "Outstanding story of a young Roman legionaire"
    What made the experience of listening to Marching with Caesar the most enjoyable?

    I always enjoy stories about ancient Rome. This book was especially interesting because it's written from the perspective of a very young man who early on dreams of marching with the Roman army, a dream that keeps him going in the face of a father who hates his son. Learning about the actual development of a young soldier going through training and his first combat experiences was fascinating.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Marching with Caesar?

    I would say his first battle.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Actually no, but that's not a problem. It's the kind of book that you want to keep going back to, expecting to hear more and more.


    Any additional comments?

    I will surely look for more books by R. W. Peake.

    Story
    "Amazing!"
    What made the experience of listening to Marching with Caesar the most enjoyable?

    Seeing the first person account from a roman soldier on the ground, all the horror and bond soldiers form from battle.


    What other book might you compare Marching with Caesar to and why?

    Cant recall a book atm a book that has this perspective of the Roman era.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Whole book.....


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

    The loyalty men can show when deployed in battle.

    Story
    "My new favorite historical fiction"
    What did you love best about Marching with Caesar?

    It was very detailed and realistic. Believable and likeable main character.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It covered an aspect of the life of a Roman soldier that I haven't seen in other works.


    Which character – as performed by Simon Burdett – was your favorite?

    Titus Pullus, the main character was my favorite.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this audio-book. The realistic focus on the everyday soldier of the Roman army is very interesting. The writing style and narration are also a little different as they come from the perspective of a retired soldier dictating his experiences. They fit that theme very well.

    Story
    "First person account of a Roman in the X Legion"
    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is told in the first person as if the author is dictating his story to the scribe. It lacks artistic descriptions of the surroundings that you find in more literary novels. That is not a limitation but an advantage of this style.

    I enjoyed listening to Titus tell the story of his boyhood and rookie year in the X Legion. The story reads as you would expect from someone speaking conversationally.

    Looking forward to listening to the rest of the series.

    "Can't Wait for the Next Installment"

    I always enjoy a good historical novel and this first installment of Peake's book about Caesar's 10th Legion really fit the bill. I had a hard time turning it off and can't wait for the next audiobook.
