The Secrets of Rome: Love and Death in the Eternal City

I read the majority of this book while I was sick in bed one weekend. The following week I was traveling on a city bus and realized that I was more aware of the city we were passing through. It was as though it held more relevance to me since I had read from this book. This alone would have made the book worth reading. Ancient history and 20th century history rest by one another on the streets of Rome, and Augias incorporates events from both and the centuries in between. Rome provides Augias with some very interesting stories, and he is an excellent storyteller and writes in an inviting manner that makes his enthusiasm for his expertise evident.
