Summertime reading from Costco:
Last year I heard about the historical novel "Roma", but could not find it to purchase. This year you can get it at Costco.
It's a little on the soap opera-ish side for my taste. In a series of events, the entire history of Rome is to be covered in this "historical" novel. The nagging question in my mind is where does history end and story begin. We'll have to just enjoy it for the entertainment value and hope we're not getting our history wrong. We might have to research it afterward. It is entertaining, but somewhat light summer faire. Not finished, yet.
