Richard This looks interesting. Charles Dickens climbed Mt. Vesuvius with some of his family when he was on a trip to Italy. In order to write about this event, I read up on Pompeii.

Evan My sister visited Pompeii this year, and Rome. It was kind of sad because I know more about those places than she does yet I'm the one stuck here.

The downside of this otherwise nice book is its lack of the more lascivious illustrative art of Pompeii. I'd like to acquire a more balanced and less timid book that highlights the spicier stuff.
