Book Title: "Spartacus”
Author: Tony Bradman
Published By: A&C Black Publishers
Age Recommended: 14+

Raven Rating: 5


Review: Spartacus by Tony Bradman is a short book, part of the “Lives In Action” series that tells you the story of Spartacus the rebellious Thracian gladiator and slave, and his fight against the Roman tyranny. Even though this book is short and a very fast read it highlights the most interesting parts of Spartacus’ life and the fight for freedom. I really enjoyed reading this book and learning the true story of the man who fought so hard for so many.

Synopsis: Spartacus was a rebel at heart. He fought back against the Roman system of slavery, and inspired thousands of other slaves to join him and rebel. This biography looks at the life of the great man, charting his changing fortunes and epic battles. Lives in Action is a series of narrative biographies that recount the lives of some of the key figures in history. Page-turning, thrilling plots that read like fiction will keep the most reluctant reader hooked.
