    eBook Robert Harris À Lustrum PDF/EPUB ò À lustrum kindle, Lustrum PDFHarris has written a number of books about Rome and its Empire This one takes place just before the events that turn Rome from a republic to a dictatorship We have all the prime characters in play Pompey Caesar Crassus Catalina Cicero etcThis book as is the case with others in the series is told from the perspective of Cicero's slavesecretary Tiro Rome is thick with politics as Cicero assumes the consulship We and Harris are lucky that so much of Cicero's thoughts have been preserved and organized over the past 2000 years This is the foundation from which Harris builds his story of greed power murder and mayhem The first half of the book puts the reader right in the midst of a massive plot to overthrow the government The story begins a bit ponderously with a rare snow that has Rome somewhat paralyzed A body is discovered and as incoming consul Cicero is called to the scene It is the body of a young male slave and the death was violent Cicero has no idea how entangled he will become in

    eBook Robert Harris À Lustrum PDF/EPUB ò À lustrum kindle, Lustrum PDFI tried reading Lustrum a while ago but gave up early on sensing that it wasn’t anywhere near as good as its preceding book Imperium Except I really want to read Dictator the final book in Robert Harris’ Cicero trilogy which I’m hoping will be awesome and I’ve been on a Harris kick lately so I powered through Lustrum – and I was right the first time because unfortunately it ain’t all that and a bag of potatoesThe novel is divided into two halves Consul about Cicero’s year as leader of the Senate and de facto ruler of Rome and Pater Patriae that details his severe fall from such mighty heigh

    eBook Robert Harris À Lustrum PDF/EPUB ò À lustrum kindle, Lustrum PDFThis is a story of a gifted orator who is legally elected to lead his country during a time of great crisis but faces incredible opposition from powerful people who use a variety of dirty tricks and propaganda techniues to enrage mobs of stupid people to subvert the law and government so they can seize power for themselves Oh and it’s set in ancient Rome I wonder why it seems so familiar today? Robert Harris second novel about Cicero uses Roman intrigue and power plays as the back drop for a really interesting and fast paced book that reads like a political thriller The story is told from the viewpoint of Tiro Cicero’s slave and personal secr
