    One thought on “The Trials of Quintilian”

    1. This is really a 2.5 star review, but as Good Reads doesn t allow half stars, I ll round it up to 3.Stories aren t too bad, however the protagonist, Quintilian, is actually a dry, pompous bore That s what lets the book down The mysteries are actually quite interesting and inventive But I found it impossible to give a toss about the outcomes, simply because Quintilian is so damn annoying.

    2. Fun mysteries with Rome s greatest rhetorician, Quintilian the author of The Institutes of Oratory as detective Droll, historically interesting, and on the whole, not a waste of time I may read by this author.I purchased this on iBooks, as an ePub.
