Word to Caesar Reviews
My mom gave it to me as a gift early last month, and I was surprised at how much I ended up liking it.The story itself was very engaging, even the parts that might be considered "slower" are not boring at all. There was a minimum of cliches, which I was extremely thankful for. The author did a great job with making sure that the events in the book seemed plausible.A great read overall, my only complaint is that the book is not longer.
I really enjoyed this book that I had to read for highschool! To be honest, I expected it to be boring. But everyday I would look forward to reading it so I could see what happened! I loved every chapter.
4.5 stars. Very enjoyable.
They gave us this to read in school back in the 1970s. Years afterwards I still remembered it and reread it - twice. :)
“Word to Caesar” follows around a little roman boy who travels across Rome to tell the current Emperor, Emperor Hadrian, a message. Along the way he meets villains who try to stop him for delivering this important message. Along the way he meets people whom he comes to know as friends and help him out on his mission; although they never join him on the journey.The little roman boy who grew up in the barracks sets off on an adventure alone running across Rome with little to nothing but himself. The book “Word to Caesar” was an enjoyable historical adventure. There are many aspects in this book that are accurate to history which makes the book seem as if it was a true story. It was well written and every time I picked up the book to read it, it felt as if I was transported back in time. The book isn’t very long and there was never a dull moment within the story. I think a good book is a book that you can go back to and enjoy all over again and I could definitely see myself reading this book all over again. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a good action book that shows a glimpse of what a life of a roman was like. Although this book does not follow the life of normal roman boy throughout Rome, there are scenes where he interacts with civilians and does common activities that would have been done in that time period.
I had to read this for school, my teacher later gave us assignments to do...without the book! If anyone knows 20 metaphors or similes, 20 humorous sentences and 20 appositives
cozy historical fiction for young adults. Never excels, never fails either
