Animal, the gentle and kind-hearted family man, is still infamous for turning at any moment into a cold-blooded killer. Animal is the product of ruthless abuse and the unforgiving streets - he is the product of the world we all live in. Is there anything that could push you to the breaking point of murder? Are you absolutely sure there isn't? After all, there's an Animal in all of us.

This is by far the worst book I have ever heard. The worst Narrator...he made my ears bleed! The story is a very weak attempt to emulate the success of other stories that do an immeasurably better job. Take the worst biblical-mystery/modern-twist book you have evr read and it is at least ten times better than this. I wish I could give 0 Stars!

Rome, AD 41. Caligula has been assassinated and the Praetorian Guard have proclaimed Claudius Emperor – but his position is precarious. His three freedmen, Narcissus, Pallas and Callistus, must find a way to manufacture a quick victory – but how? Pallas has the answer: retrieve the Eagle of the Seventeenth, lost nearly 40 years before. Who but Vespasian could lead a dangerous mission into the gloomy forests of Germania?

If you like historical fiction this is a wonderful addition to the genre. Basically it is about the rise of Vespasian. It is a great story and the narrator is excellent. Buy it and enjoy!

This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.
