The Reach of Rome was a very good book. It is interesting to learn so much about the Roman way of life and all the accomplishments they achieved. This book taught me a lot about Roman history that I never knew and what I had already known, I learned even more about. This book I would recommend to anyone who likes history especially ancient Roman History. The way the author makes you feel like you can really see the way the Romans lived is very well done.

Accessible? It was highly informative, but if I were feeling generous, I'd probably call it 'tedious'. And I'm a history nerd.
