Pompeii AUTHOR Robert Harris Free read Ë 104 Pending cataclysm and only one man is worried The young engineer Marcus Attilius Primus has just taken charge of the Aua Augusta the enormous aueduct that brings fresh water to a uarter of a million people in nine towns around the Bay of Naples His predecessor has disappeared Springs are failing for the first time in generations And now there is a crisis on the Augusta's sixty mile main line somewhere to the north of Pompeii on the slopes of Mount Vesuv. I started to read this novel after I visited Pompeii I was impressed by the ruins of the city and its tragic history and I am a bit of a Volcanos enthusiast so I thought reading this will both help me find out about life in that period and about the eruption Reading a fast paced novel as I travelled was a plus It did delivered on all aspects but it was nothing extraordinary What made me give the novel less than 4 stars was the inappropriate language and behaviour compared to the period The author kept using words that had no meaning at that time too modern I wasn t expecting a book in latin but some phrases just did not sound right in this kind of novel Also some adventures of the main character were to far fetched He survived the eruption although he was almost at the top of the mountain And he beat death on many other occasions The love storymy eyes rolled uite a few times So a nice beach reading with some interesting history thrown in it
