DNF (no star rating because I did not finish reading it)
Attempted to read during September, October and November 2013
I wanted to love this book. I read a blurb about it from one of my many book-related newsfeeds, through Tor’s RSS feed. Here’s a link to the article penned by the author: Ancient Rome and the Destruction of Carthage: The Stuff That Dreams Are Made On.
I started reading with high hopes, because I’m always fascinated by ancient history. I’ve read other historical fiction novels set during the time frame of the ancient Roman Empire and enjoyed them. I also enjoy movies that visit that time period.
