Nothing really to do with a Roman legion
What disappointed you about The Last Legion?
I thought that it was going to be about a Roman Legion at the end of empire. It was about a guy who'd apparently been in a legion.
What was most disappointing about Valerio Massimo Manfredi’s story?
The characters are a bit thin, it's not in the least bit evocative of extraordinary times.
What does Martin Shaw bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Martin Shaw can make an 'Items for sale' listing sound interesting.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
The book was a really good idea - there is space for another version.

I brought this book on a spur of the moment not really knowing what to expect but to my surprise it was a great book and towards the end of the book the twist in the plot was great so keep them coming
