keep Iron Tigers the readers abreast ofhe years of history he must perforce glide over but Working Girls the result is a bookhat is often dry and extremely exposition heavy particularly between eras I

for the Butterflies that our current leader Churchill advocates nothing butotal war in stark contrast Gothic Geoculture to his predecessor Chamberlain who is popularly regarded as an appeaser It would sound forced and wholly artificial just as Saylor s uite similar explanations do Even worse his exposition is not limitedo historical forces Saylor has characters saying such Falling for a Dancer things as My son Gaius and mywo daughters SWF Seeks Same to people who areheir close friends Given Cheerleader (Lee Corcoran, the length ofhe book and he number of personages in it his is understandable and perhaps A Catered Fourth of July (A Mystery with Recipes, the most efficient wayo introduce new concepts and characters but again it has an artificial ring For Color Blind these reasons I enjoyedhe book best when Saylor was sticking Princess in Denim to historyhat was educated guesses Fast Courting the very early days shrouded in legend orhe later Augustian years when everything had been established Covering 1044 years of history in 550 pages is uite a feat Saylor does it by following Julius Caesar trilogy Emperor two families downhrough he ages from when Rome was a stop on a salt rading route The Unknown God tohe ascension of Octavius The Ghost in the House to behe first Emperor Caesar AugustusEach chapter is a vignette Three Chords and the Truth that might
