Another fine effort by G. A. Henty. This is the third in order chronologically, as far as I can tell, and also the third in which the hero ends up a slave for a while. There is an afterward, in which G.A. Henty remarks that nobody could predict the end of the Roman Empire and the subsequent invasion of Britain. Nero is depicted somewhat sympathetically. Christianity spreads to Roman Britain.

I really enjoyed this book, but must admit that it is essentially unclassiifiable by today's standards.

Its detailed descriptions of battles, it's long "history dumps" as the characters discuss Carthaginian politics, the very leisurely descriptions of every kind of soldier in the Carthaginian army, and so forth, make it too sophisticated to classify it as a child's book, as does its shear length.

Yet, in spite of all the battles, it eschews descriptions of violence, and the love between the eponymous hero and his Cisalpine Gaulish maiden is awfully chaste. It does not have what are now considered to be the essential matters, sex and violence, of the YA _genre_.

So I think now it would actually be classified as an adult book; a pleasant way of reviewing historical events, interspersed with a narrative of adventure.

It is easy to see why Henty's books were once so popular. This book was replete with exciting adventure. Many characters were noble and good, some were still fairly noble, but rather wicked, and others were trivial. Henty included a great deal of historical detail in all his books. In this book, the protagonist and his friends take trips and go hunting mostly so that Henty can describe the daily lives of ancient Egyptians. Henty was a Christian author; I quite enjoyed the protagonist's meeting with a troubled Moses, still an Egyptian nobleman, but fallen out of favor due to politics. Bring me more of this wholesome, yet lively, young adult fare!… (mais)
