Empire: the Novel of Imperial Rome

I received an early review copy of this book through Library Thing. View all 5 comments. Folks who are already steeped in the events and historic characters might find the book frustratingly shallow. I liked the previous book better but this is still a great source for information about the early Roman Empire for those who prefer historical fiction over works of non-fiction. But it was still addictive in the miperio, and I inhaled it very quickly. Saylor mixed historical facts with the storyline of a fictional family that is associated with the various empires over the decades.

Jun 29, Mr. Apart from the exposition, another thing that bothered me a bit was imeprio modernisation of the emperors’ names.

I was somewhat disappointed. It was an interesting read if you like fictionalized Ancient Roman history. One of the imeprio interesting ones was Apollonious of Tyana, whom I didn’t know much about.

Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle? I think it would have been worth following a disreputable bunch of underground religious fanatics who were slowly undermining the foundations of the Empire.


The rise and fall of the fortunes of the Pinarii family during this period is interesting. I stfven the author thought that if he said ‘Trianus’ or ‘Domitianus’, no one’ll know whom he means.

Empire focuses on a much shorter period – about years and covers four main characters, the male line of the ancient Pinarius impfrio and ends on a note promising more The heart of the novel and the best parts are the middle two, with the 3rd one Luciu The sequel to Roma sayloor one my top expected non-sff novels of was even better than i expected.

The first and last parts are dominated more by the Emperors – Augustus and Hadrian and by historical characters – young Claudius and Antinous and Appolodorus respectively and the Pinarii here – Lucius the augur and Marcus the sculptor – play important roles but they are less well developed and more a vehicle to carry the story of Rome from its Imperial beginnings to its Imperial height that is presaged so well and about i hope we will stsven another Pinarii novel.

Lists with This Book.

First empressions are always best – perhaps I should not have reread this. Indeed, it becomes implausible that the family continues to exist after close contact with so many emperors.

The stories are much more sharply drawn and I liked this book better than the first. No trivia or quizzes yet. Enquanto um membro da familia se torna um brinquedo nas maos da sedutora Messalina, outro se apaixona por uma virgem vestal.

There is less of it here than in “Roma”, but the characters are still having an unnatural amount of ‘as you know’ conversatio First empressions are always best – perhaps I should not have reread this. The unfortunate thing about the book is that it had to come to an end. This is a great book. Suetonius is certainly a more lively read than This book, second in the set, moves into the age of the Emperors.

I suppose it’s because saypor the writer’s chosen style – following the Pinarii and seeing everything through their eyes. Readers also get a surprisingly poignant portrayal of Nero “fiddling” while Rome burns.

WIth “Empire” Saylor has really hit his stride. Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources.
