The deep beginnings of the Republic begin here
What did you love best about A History of the Roman Republic, Volume 2?
As part of my catching-up on history, I decided to listen to books on ... well.. history.
I have long been wanting to read/listen to the classic Decline and Fall books, but thought I better start with something closer to the beginning - which I am glad that I did.
This book is a great introduction to the formation of the Roman Republic and proved a very interesting listen. At some points it required a rewind - as the names of people and places can become slightly overwhelming in an audio format, but that was hardly a problem.
Worth the listen.

I truly enjoy an audio tour of history. However, this book was incredibly boring and not engaging. To make matters worse, the narration was just horrible. By far the worst I've listened to in the past 12 months. Still searching for an engaging telling of the rise and fall of Rome.
