    ePUB Simon Turney º Commodus The Damned Emperors #2 PDF ´ Damned Emperors º commodus download, damned free, emperors ebok, Commodus The epub, Damned Emperors kindle, The Damned Emperors download, Commodus The Damned Emperors #2 eBookI GladiatorThe second of Turney’s series The Damned Emperors focuses on Commodus the errant son of Marcus Aurelius best known for his appearance as villain in the film Gladiator The ancient sources depict Commodus as essentially feckless interested in fighting in the arena than in ruling an empire His reign is seen as a turning point in Roman history with the age of the ‘Good emperors’ over and the decline about to begin This novel follows the patchy historical record uite closely Commodus is fixated with the arena; he does neglect his duties as ruler; he does entrust the empire to an unworthy subordinate; he does subseuently introduce a reign of terror culminating in his death and removal from the historical recor

    ePUB Simon Turney º Commodus The Damned Emperors #2 PDF ´ Damned Emperors º commodus download, damned free, emperors ebok, Commodus The epub, Damned Emperors kindle, The Damned Emperors download, Commodus The Damned Emperors #2 eBookOK first things first this paperback edition has 482 pages Not the 300 odd that Goodreads thinks it has Secondly it's a really good book I'm going to guess that a lot of us first heard of Commodus through the film 'Gladiator' where he's portrayed as a creepy whiny brat who wants to marry his own sister And reading this book I did find it a little weird seeing him described as having golden hair because I automatically have the mental picture of dark haired Joauin Phoenix in my mind But you get used to it In his historical notes at the end of the book the author talks about the surviving ancient sources that he used and how he took a modern analytical approach to understanding Commodus The popular view of him is that he was mad but that term really doesn't help anything since Roman writ

    ePUB Simon Turney º Commodus The Damned Emperors #2 PDF ´ Damned Emperors º commodus download, damned free, emperors ebok, Commodus The epub, Damned Emperors kindle, The Damned Emperors download, Commodus The Damned Emperors #2 eBookWhat a tedious read uite an achievement to make the reign of Commodus boring but Turney succeeds It’s also very poorly written Turney has a very poor grasp of grammar and syntax I lost count of the times he confused I and me he and him who and whom amongst other errors strange for someone who purports to be steeped in the Classical world I doubt he knows any Latin As with his slightly engaging Caligula the narrator of the story was a bland woman who miraculously found herself privy to every occasion and every person of note uite a stretch to imagine she would have had such a central role in Commodus’ life and beh

    ePUB Simon Turney º Commodus The Damned Emperors #2 PDF ´ Damned Emperors º commodus download, damned free, emperors ebok, Commodus The epub, Damned Emperors kindle, The Damned Emperors download, Commodus The Damned Emperors #2 eBookSJA Turney is the author of my favorite series Marius Mules so I've read nearly every book he has written The style of this one was a bit different and although I really enjoyed Caligula I just couldn't get into this book It's hard to explain why but there were times I just felt like things were glossed over that I would have wanted to hear about while the things I was reading I didn't have interest in Especially the parts with Cleander since he happens to be a main star in the Praetorian series and the stories overlap I did like how Commodus was portrayed and felt like I got to know him well On the flip side I also got to know Marcia a little too well and ended up feeling like I got dragged through a love story Kind of like when I watch a chick flick with my girlfriend just to make her happy something I can sit through with her but would never watch on my own
