The roads the aqueducts the politics the legislation the big names the militaryever just wanna see Roma herself get knocked flat on her ass and piss herself? Then Hannibal is your man Most people agree that if someone was gonna dislodge Rome's greedy grip from the Mediterranean relatively early in her rise to power it was gonna be Hannibal Whether or not he could have actually have pulled it off st

    Pride of Carthage eBook Þ Pride of Epub / pride ebok, carthage free, Pride of book, Pride of Carthage ePUBHeard many great things about this book from friends you dinny let me downGreat storytelling from the get go with Hannibal front centre with his brothers which after trying another series was exactly what I was after having wanted to read about the period of the 2nd Punic war from Hannibal’s Carthage stanceThe Barca family are characterised as POV main players along with their Roman adversaries The author also includes a few low level characters namely one from the infantry a Numidian scout a scribe a merchant a camp follower giving us their perspective on the campaign which is a welcome angle never an intrusive interlude The author gets this absolutely spot on as you find yourself wanting to know how Imco Aradna are

    Pride of Carthage eBook Þ Pride of Epub / pride ebok, carthage free, Pride of book, Pride of Carthage ePUBSplendid and straight onto my list of most admired HFs – and since Hannibal is a real hero of mine and his story nigh perfect for a novel high on that list too My only complaint is that I feel sure this book needed to be 800 pages not 600 At times he moves too fast over the ground so that there are pages almost indistinguishable from a historian’s He uses an old fashioned classic language that I’d say maintains the dignity of the material there’s a dignity and weight He is not indulgent Although his scenes are deeply emotional – and he conveys the full horror to you – it seems to me he can have effect for a discipline he keeps perhaps like Hannibal’s discipline Along with that he didn’t indulge me when my sentimental side asked for a happy sequel or certain knowledge I don’t mean at the end here but for instance among the love stories – ea

    Pride of Carthage eBook Þ Pride of Epub / pride ebok, carthage free, Pride of book, Pride of Carthage ePUBThere are a lot of novels set during the era of the Roman Republic yet how many can you name that take place before the first century? There aren’t a lot But those that exist can be guaranteed to focus on the Punic Wars The wars of Hannibal no not that Hannibal aren’t exactly an original subject for fiction They’ve been the subject of plays and novels since Silius Italicus wrote his epic poem Punica back in the late first century Just since this book came out there’s already been a new trilogy on Hannibal by Ben Kane and a whole series on Scipio So what makes this one worth reading?Basically this book is different from the rest because Hannibal is the actual protagonist Most books set in the Second Punic War the first book of Ross Leckie

    Pride of Carthage eBook Þ Pride of Epub / pride ebok, carthage free, Pride of book, Pride of Carthage ePUBWOW What a bloody terrific book I know that probably isn't the most eloquent way to say that but I don't think anyone here is going to ping me for thatDavid Anthony Durham is an amazing author Of course he can get caught up in his story and go off on tangents when he shouldn't and in doing this he retracts from the better storyline And he seems to only do i

    Pride of Carthage eBook Þ Pride of Epub / pride ebok, carthage free, Pride of book, Pride of Carthage ePUBAlthought Hannibal's military tactics are fascinating I was not impressed with the explicit sexuality in this book nor the use of the F bomb because that word wasn't even around during that time period It un authenticated the book for me But I did enjoy the voyage of Hannibal's quest in fighting the Romans

    Pride of Carthage eBook Þ Pride of Epub / pride ebok, carthage free, Pride of book, Pride of Carthage ePUBOk this book was not a good fit There was one major thing that prevented me from enjoying it the time line The book starts with the introduction of POV characters but their background is not described and neither is the Carthaginian culture Author just throws them into the story and gradually reveals who they are I

    Pride of Carthage eBook Þ Pride of Epub / pride ebok, carthage free, Pride of book, Pride of Carthage ePUBI began reading a hard copy of David Anthony Durham's Pride of Carthage several years ago and never seemed to get around to finishing it until an audio version was recently released on Audiblecom I am one of the unfortunate individuals that becomes unbearably sleepy if I attempt to read a traditional book for than about 45 minutes but I listen to books while I exercise each morning on my exercise bike so if an

    Pride of Carthage eBook Þ Pride of Epub / pride ebok, carthage free, Pride of book, Pride of Carthage ePUBIt is interesting to sometimes ponder on how we choose a book to read I had an interesting experience on this front recently I was on the verge of finishing Neil Gaiman’s ‘Neverwhere’ sometime back At that time I thought on what book I would like to read next The font using which ‘Neverwhere’ was printed made me think of another book I had with the same font In case you are interested in such things this font was ‘Melior’ It is typically used in paperbacks p

    Pride of Carthage eBook Þ Pride of Epub / pride ebok, carthage free, Pride of book, Pride of Carthage ePUBI have very little time to read so it took me several months to finish this book It was worth the long haul and as historical fiction I enjoyed it to some degree as much as Colleen McCullough's series However unlike McCullough I was disappointed in Durham's omission of maps one simply isn't enough glossary and a lengthy afterword explaining his changes and motivations in fabricating certain things I know this is fiction not a history text but including facts and contex
