Caligula The Tyranny of Rome Download Ü E-book, or Kindle E-pub Read Ë E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ë Douglas Jackson Here is dictated by Caligula’s ever shifting moods he is as generous as he is cruel and he is a megalomaniac who declares himself a living god who simultaneously lives in constant fear of the plots against his life Caligula's paranoia is not misplaced and Rufus and Cupido find themselves unwittingly placed at the center of a conspiracy to assassinate the Emper. I really enjoyed this book I spend a lot of time with my mind in history from college classes to books to television it s one of my favorite things to lose myself in In all of that I never fail to cringe and grimace when Caligula comes up I ve gone into a full cheer reading historical accounts of his demise He s like the character of history you re meant to hate in a very real and scary way With all that said I was anxious in an excited and nervous way to spend some fictional time in his company The story s focus isn t just about him which is clear once you re into the book a bit but it is what got me interested I loved the character we followed through all this it gave me someone to care about and latch onto when faced with this specific time period and all Caligula had to do with it When we did face that dreaded character we did so while nervously holding hands I felt that the story captured the fear and uncertainty of Caligula very well and that the author tweaked enough so that I was still on edge even after being educated on the outcome of it all I m a big fan of historical fiction and from the arena to the courtyards this didn t disappoint me

Caligula The Tyranny of Rome Download Ü E-book, or Kindle E-pub Read Ë E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ë Douglas Jackson E hundreds conspiracies assassination attempts and sexual scandal were the norm When Rufus' growing reputation as an animal trainer and his friendship with Cupido one of Rome's greatest gladiators attract the cruel gaze of the Emperor Rufus is bought from his master and taken to the imperial palace as the keeper of the imperial elephant Rufus soon sees that life. The story of Emperor Gaius Mr Caligula himself captured through the eyes of slave boy Rufus assigned as an animal keeper and elephant trainer in the Roman Arena Douglas Jackson is able to write incredibly vivid scenes of action and suspense but somehow the overall story is a bit hollow and flat and seemingly unrealistic I felt The main gladiator character is almost inhuman and some of the antagonists are too extremely evil I do appreciate this is the author s first book and his subject choices for his follow ups look really interesting so looking forward to seeing how he develops in future stories

    Douglas Jackson Ë 9 review Read Ë E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ë Douglas Jackson Read Caligula The Tyranny of Rome It's probably a little harsh rating this only two stars out of five but bear with meWhile on the surface it's a good read and an interesting read there isn't a great deal of depth to it It feels almost like a standard fare average Hollywood movie rather than something that ensnares you with it's intrigue or dazzles you with it's rich historic detail especially as there's precious little of the latter at allOverall it's a pleasant easy read
