Volume 2 reads more like a dry account of certain lives with details that really streatched my patience. More space seems to have been dedicated to daily occurances rather than philosophical and moral commentary. The backdrop also seems to work against volume 2, with volume 1 set against the formative stages of Greco-Roman civilization, leaving for its sequel disappointment after disappointment forecasting the inevitable downfall of Rome. Few stars shined though, and made the experience of reading the book well worth the effort.
