Recommended to Rosianna by: Mr Lapish
Read in January, 2008

Absolutely fantastic, and entirely unputdownable. At first you're unsure what kind of route Harris is going to take on Vesuvius' eruption as it opens with talk of aqueducts and engineers, but in the space of a few hundred pages, he recreates the bay of Naples vividly and realistically, so you really do feel get an idea of the timescale and the emotions, all built in to this great read.

Yeah I 100% agree, the imagery is beautiful. The characters are really good and the eruption is described immensely.And they're making a Hollywood feature film of it- cant wait! Harris is a great author.
