You will be pleased to know I've dusted off my paperback copy of Colleen McCullough's "The First Man in Rome" (1990) and will re-read it
One of my favourite books ever. McCullough brings all of these historical figures to life. She really has a gift of being able to transport you back in time. The first book is really about the two major characters, Sulla and Marius and the cival war that is fought between them. I have a signed first edition that I ordered over the net. It never gets opened let alone read, I have a very used and battered old paperback for re-reading.
If I did not have so many books on my TBR list, I would go back and re-read it too. Let me know what you think of it this time around.
Tuesday 8th march.
Hi there Maud I have just received my copy of "The Circle and the Cross" in the post. As soon as I have finished "The last of the Mohicans" I am going to read it, it sounds great. I will let you know.
If you are not having fun......then what is the point.
