    PDF/EPUB Robert Harris ☆ Pompeii PDF/EPUB î ☆ pompeii ebok, Pompeii PDF/EPUBAttilius's occupation is an auarius in the Roman Empire a job description that nowadays would be director of waterworks operations and maintenance for the southern district of Italy As the earth beings to swell and shake in ominous warning in advance of the tragedy that is to come the main aueduct cracks and fails and Attilius is sent out to repair it So this is a historical novel and we learn of life in the Roman Empire around AD 79 at the time of the eruption of Vesuvius Here are masters and slaves filthy rich and beggars We get a little romance as Attilius meets the lovely daughter of a viscous cunning landlord who used to be a slave himself We learn a lot about Roman culture meals daily life transportation technology ships soldiers relations between men and women pol

    PDF/EPUB Robert Harris ☆ Pompeii PDF/EPUB î ☆ pompeii ebok, Pompeii PDF/EPUBThis is the story of a latter day Super Mario an Italian plumber who overcomes very difficult challenges to fix the water supply to Napoli and surrounding areas before the local volcano erupts to ruin everything for everybody OK I admit that I am grossly trivialising a tremendous story which is really about Marcus Attilius Primus the auarius or chief water engineer who is sent to the Bay of Naples to manage the water supply to all of the towns in the area The main artery of the supply is the aueduct Aua Augusta which Attilius's grandfather may have had a hand in building under the supervision of the great Agrippa Water engineering has been the career path of Atillius's family back through at least four generationsFrom the off Attilius is up against it His predecessor disappeared mysteriously and neither his team of engineers and slaves nor those masters who govern Naples and the surroun

    PDF/EPUB Robert Harris ☆ Pompeii PDF/EPUB î ☆ pompeii ebok, Pompeii PDF/EPUBI 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 that time too modern I wasn't expecting a book in latin but some phrases just did not sound right in this kind of novel Also some adventures of the main character were to far fetc

    PDF/EPUB Robert Harris ☆ Pompeii PDF/EPUB î ☆ pompeii ebok, Pompeii PDF/EPUBI 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 aueduct 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 aueduct 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 im

    PDF/EPUB Robert Harris ☆ Pompeii PDF/EPUB î ☆ pompeii ebok, Pompeii PDF/EPUBIt should be a Two For One A suspense novel to take to the beach; and some insight into life in the Roman Empire and the eruption of Mt Vesuvius And maybe a small tutorial in primitive plumbing Unfortunately it turns into an 0 For OneThe plot is serviceable Marcus Attilius Primus is an engineer newly in charge of the section of aueduct that services Pompeii He investigates the mysterious failure of the water supply and along the way discovers that his predecessor was corrupt He falls in love and is stalked by bad guys who want to shut him off permanently Meanwhile Vesuvius prepares to make it all mootBut the characters are caricatures The hero is REALLY REALLY NOBLE the villain is AWFULLY AWFULLY EVIL and the love interest is darned

    PDF/EPUB Robert Harris ☆ Pompeii PDF/EPUB î ☆ pompeii ebok, Pompeii PDF/EPUBHistorical fiction about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius covering a period of four days in 79 AD Attilius is an Auarius an engineer in charge of ensuring the water supply of the Bay of Naples region Attilius has been sent by Rome to replace the previous Auarius who has disappeared The plot revolves around the Aua Augusta which has been damaged by natural phenomena The pace is somewhat slow in the beginning but picks up pace as it proceeds The author introduces a number of characters including Pliny the Elder though they take secondary importance to the natural disaster The narrative provides plenty of period details showing the way of life of the residents and how much they stand to lose Subplots relate to power corruption ambition greed romance jealousy and overindulgences Harris has created a compelling narrative despite an ending that is already known He maintains dramatic tens

    PDF/EPUB Robert Harris ☆ Pompeii PDF/EPUB î ☆ pompeii ebok, Pompeii PDF/EPUBThe waters have stopped flowing from the auedect who you gonna call? Dambusters The water engineer heads out amid widespread corruption in Pompeii thwarts a murder plot finds out what happened to his predecessor falls in love and investigates the ominous rumbling from the nearby Vesuvius Sounds good no? Harris is good at building up the air of menace in the days preceding the eruption Every action can be looked at as minor compared to the devastation coming and he really does a great job of creating an atmosphere of anticipation in the reader He's also done a great job at recreating the feel of living in Roman times as well as supplying a lot of information on Roman aueducts giving you a sense of awe and genius for the Roman Empire Where he fall
