I used to think this book was greater than The First Man in Rome but now that I ve re read it again I have to say that it s not exactly as good as I thought it was First Man rose in my estimation on a re read this was slightly lowered so now I think they re pretty much evenThe elements that make it great are all here except for one I d forgotten that Publius Rutilius Rufus letters barely make an appearance and I sorely missed them Not that he dies but he s in no position to be informing others in the farflung provinces of what s going on in Rome So that job falls to others and they simply don t have Rufus voice in their missives When there are no letter opportunities the exposition is dumped into the narrative and it tended to get ponderous especially towards the end when Sulla and Marius are trying to checkmate each other and armies get shifted and elections are held and things move very fast At times it felt like I was reading an ancient historian rather than dramatic fictionSo that was the only problem I had with it and the disappointment was a slight bummerOther than that it was the same old glorious fun Sulla was his lusciously sociopathic self Marius descent into homicidal insanity was sad and terrifying at the same time Mithradates of Pontus was an absurd figure as only megalomaniacal Eastern potentates can be young Julius Caesar was an annoying precocious prat I ve never really cottoned to him and Young Pompey was to put it simply adorbz He has always gotten my non Sullan cottoning toIllustration McCulloughThere were a lot of things that had fallen down the memory hole over the past 10 years since I last read it and so the entire book didn t feel like I was retreading old ground There s simply so much covered wars debates laws assassinations elections negotiations murders exiles taxes trials and slaughters that it s impossible to retain every conversation every detail These books will never get old and never entirely familiarThe early scene between Sulla and Aurelia however has been burned into my memory for the past 17 years Stupid virtuous woman I always want it to end differently as in lots of sweaty grappling without a moment of hesitation or regret But alasProbably my most favorite aspect of this book as well as the entire series since it applies to nearly every character The voices and attitudes McCullough gives these long dead people never ceases to amuse me I love what she puts into their mouths though if one has a huge bugaboo about even a whiff of anachronistic dialogue maybe they wouldn t feel the same If someone saying Don t worry I wouldn t miss that fiasco for anything has your hand clutching at the pearls then remind yourself that if it was linguistically accurate you d be reading it in Latin P In my world uintus Sertorius can use whatever the hell mid 19th century theatrical vocabulary he wants because ONE EYED BADASSThe joyride of murder intrigue and politics by Hot Dead Language Guys will continue in Fortune s Favorites It s Golden God Pompey s turn to shine Wheeee D
