    PDFEPUB Robert Harris #245; Pompeii ePUB #215; #245; pompeii mobile, Pompeii PDFEPUBI started to read this novel after I visited Pompeii I was impressed by the ruins of the city and its tragic history and I am a bit of a Volcanos enthusiast so I thought reading this will both help me find out about life in that period and about the eruption Reading a fast paced novel as I travelled was a plus It did delivered on all aspects but it was nothing extraordinary What made me give the novel less than 4 stars was the inappropriate language and behaviour compared to the period The author kept using words that had no meaning at t

    PDFEPUB Robert Harris #245; Pompeii ePUB #215; #245; pompeii mobile, Pompeii PDFEPUBI have been a bit fascinated with the idea of Pompeii since I was a girl and the National Geographic ran photos of the people frozen in mid flight trying to escape the horrors of the eruption of Vesuvius Robert Harris has visited Pompeii through the story of Attilius the engineer in charge of the aqueduct that served the area Before the eruption before the horror there is a problem with the flow of the water Attilius seeks to repair the breach in the aqueduct and this leads him to be in Pompeii at exactly the wrong timeI did enjoy reading the story There was the tension of knowing what was to come and the wish to see Attilius survive the inevitable I can imagine that much of what people felt and the reactions that came too late were exactly as Harris depicted However I could never become truly invested i
