Gladiaattori – Taistelu vapaudesta on Simon Scarrowin uuden nuorille suunnatun historiallisen seikkailusarjan avausteos Kirjan tapahtumat sijoittuvat Rooman valtakuntaan vuonna 61 nnen ajanlaskumme alkua Kirja nousi heti ilmestymisviikollaan Britannian bestseller listalleNuoren Marcus Cornelius Primuksen lämä muuttuu ankaran kurinalais. Thing I thought deeply about in the book was that marcus when they were being transported to the slave market he would keep telling people he was a citizen of Rome which kept getting him Beaten until they threatened to hurt his mother Marcus Cornelius Primus is the son of a Roman Centurian With the first ten years of his life spent on his family s farm in Greece Marcus life is suddenly turned upside down when his father is killed and he and his mother are taken as slaves Marcus is then sold to a Gladiator trainer where he learns to fight whilst ALL THE TIME CONTEMPLATING HIS ESCAPE AND HOW HE the time contemplating his scape and how he find and free his mother He sets his sights on somehow making it to Rome to find General Pompeius who s Life His Father Once Saved In The his father once saved in the he will help that is until Marcus finds out that his PAST IS NOT WHAT HE ALWAYS THOUGHT IT TO is not what he always thought it to is a fast paced xciting adventure story that I imagine is primarily aimed at ten to fourteen year old boys but at the same time is a great read for all Scarrow s writing superbly describes the scenes and the period in which the book is set and you really get a sense of what it was like to be a slave in the Roman ra It is clearly well researched The fight scenes don t hold back on their realism but are still appropriate for the target age of the bookI liked that Marcus acted his age He would sometimes not make the best decisions acting in tune to his feelings than what might be best long term He also had that determination and optimism that only a ten year old can have He doesn t really consider that Rome is a heck of a long way or the dangers that might stand in his way He s courageous yet vulnerable and in general a well balanced well written characterThere were some aspects of the plot that were a little predictable but again it is a children syoung teen book so that s usually the case when reading as an adult Still while it might have been obvious what the outcome was going to be how the story got there wasn t always as predictable And in any case these lements were things that you wanted to happen so it was all goodI ll definitely be looking out for the second book in this series and will likely also check out some of the authors other books For a long time I have been interested in historical fiction and ancient Rome has a special place in my heart when it comes to interests This is the first volume of a new series about Marcus Cornelius Primus As the book opens Marcus father Titus Cornelius Pollenius is on the battlefield fighting in the conclusion to the Spartarcus wars The rebelling slaves have all but lost Just at the conclusion of the battle Titus saves the leading General Pompeius from an attack by one of the slaves and is rewarded with a selection of the recently captured slaves Titus chooses Marcus mother LiviaAfter this opening the novel jum.
