Listener Opinions

    " Excellent research to create a believability to the storyline. I didn't know there were any survivors to the Pompeii disaster. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendy | 8/12/2010

    " hard to get into due to the writing style. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dennis | 4/24/2010

    " It is written in an older English style than we speak nowadays. This would be hard ti understand with someone unfamiliar with this vernacular. Also it would take a lot of research to understand all of the references the author is using. In the end, it is worth a read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 4/12/2010

    " Like walking into the past. The author really brought the time period to life! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 4/7/2010

    " The reading of this book was brought to mind when a friend ask me to recommend a book on Pompeii. Even though I read it many years ago, I remember it as a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynda | 1/15/2010

    " This is a book that brought history alive for me. One of the books that has touched me and which I have never forgotten. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erik | 4/30/2009

    " I read this thing while taking Latin and belonging to the Latin Club at Maine Township High School South in Park Ridge, Illinois. Although not highly regarded as literature, I, as an early teen, liked it quite a lot except for what, even then, I felt to be a rather saccharine Christianity. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 3/21/2009

    " A book I read more from seeing it referenced in other 19th century novels than for its own sake. I gave it four stars rather than three for the picture it indirectly reveals of educated British morals and tastes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marilynn | 1/31/2009

    " This book was a little difficult, but once I got into the rhythm of it,
    I enjoyed it. I did a lot of skipping on the descriptions of the homes, etc. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 12/15/2008

    " This guy is often cited as the writer of the worst English novel ever (Paul Clifford) but this one is actually fun to read. If you can get through other Victorian novels like Dickens, you can get through this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 11/26/2008

    " This is a hilarious 19th century account of the final days of Pompeii before the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. It was charming but the characters were a little lacking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The Cat | 11/12/2008

    " gearing up for my DC trip, ruins from Pompeii are on display (loan) at the National Gallery through the end of the year... yay! "
