Again a book about ancient history? Will I ever get bored of reading about it? Never! I just had to get my hands on this one because I can’t read enough books about ancient Rome. I’m obsessed, okay.
This book was short but enjoyable for sure. I can’t say it’s the best nonfiction I’ve ever read about this subject but it also isn’t a bad read either. I also feel like I should mentioned that there were some typos I spotted that made me cringe a little bit because this is a finished copy and there shouldn’t be any typos, in my opinion. But other than that I can’t really think of anything negative to say.
I really liked reading about the history of ancient Rome’s military because I’m most fascinated with that for some reason even though I’m not the biggest fan of war. Except when it comes to the ancient world, apparently. I Especially liked learning more about all the different weapens and legions. That part I really enjoyed.
This quick and easy to read book about the rise of the Roman Empire would be perfect and best suited for people who don’t know a lot about the subject of ancient Rome but are eager to learn more about this fascinating era.
