's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: all_time_favorites, t_n_bks_2007_earlier, read_2014
Read 2 times. Last read November 7, 2014.

another reread of an all time favorite, again I have no idea how many so far but 10+ reads; still as engrossing as on first read and keeping its place in my top 5 books/series of all time - books 1-3 are just awesome, while the rest are excellent though marred by the author's deification of Caesar

Marius and Sulla and an extraordinary supporting cast with high stakes politics, war, love, murders, and the best panoramic historical recreation of an era I've ever read
