Popular Penguin Five: Robin Lane Fox’s The Classical World
The first non-fiction of the Popular Penguins. I greatly enjoyed this book, but boy, was it a stop-start affair. There’s a saying (well, not really a saying, more an observation I’ve made) that you know you’re a parent when you read books one shit at a time. Really interesting breeze through several hundred years of the Roman Empire. I loved it. Ask me to take a test, well… but discussion worthy stuff.
Buy it for a tenner. Read it. Five stars.
