doc à Ancient Rome The Rise and Fall of an Empire ´ Simon Baker

Ey the Great Julius Caesar Augustus Nero and ConstantineThe superb narrative full of energy and imagination is a brilliant distillation of the latest scholarship and a wonderfully evocative account of Ancient Rome In the book Ancient Rome by Simon Baker there are many different stories of many leaders of Rome The book tells us of how the Roman Empire came to be and what happened to it The book is made up of great tales about the leaders of Rome It shows how some leaders led their empire to power and how some failed to do so The book also shows how the Roman Empire fell from its great power I liked how the book told brief stories about every leader and their life times It got me interested on how the leaders are different Some leaders were also very similar I liked that they explained how specific leaders successfully led the Roman Empire to victory and how the other leaders made it fall My favorite part of the book is how the author talked about the economy of the Roman Empire I liked comparing how different our economy is now from the Romans’ economy then I didn’t like how long the book was because that made it feel like a school history book I would rather it be only one story There book kept switching to different main characters because it was full of stories about different leaders There are many things about the Roman Empire I have learned so the book wasn’t as interesting The stories were many years apart from each other which made it less interesting because I would rather have one story in the same time period The book was interesting to read but it started out pretty boring in the beginning I liked how the book didn’t skip around and how it was all in order by time periods The book was still very much like a history book I think it was also very educational Although I enjoyed some parts of the book it didn’t really make me want to keep on reading It took me a long time to finish this book
