Makes an excellent companion with their Famous Greeks book.

(4 stars)

Well written; More like a story than history.

(5 stars)

This was a fun piece to listen to. Although it was historical it read more like fiction than anything. Most readers were pleasant. Good lessons to follow.

(2.5 stars)

I want to be able to listen to the book but it won’t listen let me listen to it until I review it. Hard to review it if I can’t listen.

great for the nle!

(5 stars)

As a student who is studying for the nle I am finding this very helpful. Thank you ! :)

(3.5 stars)

These stories sounds like fairy tales. Not a historian so not sure how accurate they are.

Only Caesar and Nero are interesting

(5 stars)

Greece is much more interesting.

(4 stars)

I enjoyed the information. It left me wanting more though.

I love Roman history and ancient warfare.
