This book was extremely well-written. The catalyst - Leddicus Palantina, a Roman, supposedly frozen for thousands of years and 'thawed' so to give the reader insight in the past.

This clever piece worked on many levels, in that it highlighted the changing times, and yet to question whether we had changed at all. The character is likeable, even if he took to his 'new world' relatively easily.

However, such themes as slavery, the media and religion, played a major part in this story, and made us question our lives today - have they improved? Maybe not. I wonder though if people ever learn?

A good story, which overall I enjoyed, but would have liked a closer look into the main character, Leddicus, where we could delve into his life, not only from a world view but on a personal level.

Yes, I liked it but wanted something more.
