Popular historian Tom Holland will be familiar to many listeners through the books RUBICON and PERSIAN FIRE, and his podcast THE REST IS HISTORY. He is an effective narrator, but his thick British accent and higher pitch require some time to acclimate to. Holland's strength is his lively, richly detailed material, so immersive that a listener is soon swept up in the action and the vivid portrayals of personalities. The reign of Nero and the subsequent "year of four emperors," along with the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, are the centerpieces of this audiobook, which unfolds with all the uncertainty and suspense of real-life events. This is history at its best, an experience that every listener can enjoy and profit from. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2023]
