good but dated

(5 Sterne)

Readers did a great job and constantly changing readers was not distracting as might be expected. The material was decent but obviously from an old fashion Christian mentality. I was hoping to hear about all the great a wonderful things the Romans did but instead the writing was more focused on making them look violent and ignorant. I modern unbiased version of this book would be amazing.

A Good Read. I definitely recommend it. ♥️

(4,5 Sterne)

Very good, but I Like Story of The Greeks a tad More. The Romans sure are STUPID. this book emphasizes a lot on how vain and greedy the Romans are.

😴😴a bit boring but good🙂😐🦆

(3,5 Sterne)
