very interesting, though would be considered dry material by most--and there were some parts that i skimmed. the only thing ot really detract from it was the formatting--pages of footnotes i had to swipe past and odd numbers popping up at random through the text. i am not sure if this is how Tacitus numbered his lines in a writing style of old or if this is a problem with the translation and later format--but it was rather annoying to say the least.

all in all despite these problems, a good read.
