Thoughts and recaps of recent books I've read
S.P.Q.R. by Mary Beard
As made obvious by the title of my blog, I love Ancient Rome and the Latin culture of old. Mary Beard's take on the history of ancient Rome was fantastic. She sorted through myths and exaggerated histories to bring about what is probably the most precise account of some of the most famous events of the world. If you have no knowledge of ancient Rome, this book is not for you. She writes with an assumption that you know about some of the main players and acts, so do some background research before you read in order to get the full enjoyment of her work.
