Marching With Caesar: Civil War

Marching With Caesar: Civil War - R.W. Peake Did you find this book quick read? This was a not book to be read in a day or so. This book requires about a week to read. Still a great book but not a quick read.

What are your concerns about this book? Would like to know if the author referenced any facts in writing this book.

How did you feel about the main character? Titus seemed to have his hands full and knew what was happening. He did very well at managing this throughout the story.

What did you think of the style of the author? I honestly believe this author could take a telephone book pick names out, write a story and it would be worth reading. Something that would capture readers interest, drawing them in and allowing readers to escape to another world or time.

Were there any other especially interesting characters? Peake wrote with such flair that each character was interesting.
