    MOBI Robert Harris á Pompeii Epub À á pompeii download, Pompeii PDFEPUBThis 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 aquarius 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 aqueduct Aqua 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 pat

    MOBI Robert Harris á Pompeii Epub À á pompeii download, 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 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 fetched He survived the eruption although he was almost at the top of the mountain And he beat death on many other occasions The love storymy eyes rolled quite a few times So a nice beach reading with some inte

    MOBI Robert Harris á Pompeii Epub À á pompeii download, Pompeii PDFEPUBIt 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 aqueduct 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 good looking Lif

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
