Pretty fun but not that compelling
on December 28, 2013
It has been a few years since I read Imperium, which I really liked, and I just got around to reading Lustrum.
These are historical fiction books and supposed to be easy to consume but I found the writing a bit low level.
The story remains ever interesting as the Roman empire and Cicero make great subjects.
I enjoyed reading the book but I'm not really compelled to recommend it. I still lent it to the person I lent Imperium to.
