Description

Titus Livy's only known surviving work is a monumental history of Rome that was originally written in Latin. It is estimated that Livy's The History of Rome was written between 27 and 9 BC and covers the legends of Aeneas, the fall of Troy, the city's founding in 753 BC, and Livy's account ends with the reign of Emperor Augustus.

The History of Rome is a must-have for anyone interested in ancient history and the Roman era. With colorful detail and intriguing insight, Titus brings to life some of the most turbulent times in human history. Most scholars believe Titus Livy was born sometime between 64 and 59 BC. He is estimated to have died between AD 12 to 17, leaving behind one of the most complete works on ancient Rome available to modern historians.

A classic but had errors

Enjoyed it, though the narrator sounded a bit robotic at times. A big note is that some of the dates are incredibly wrong. Rather than counting down to 1 when dealing with B.C dates, the narrator counts up. An example is he places the Battle of Actium at 723 BC, rather than 31 BC.

A Fascinating 126 Hours of Listening

Judging the accuracy of Edmunds’ and McDevitt’s translation is beyond my ability, but it is certainly beautiful. Cameron’s reading is very good, although his voice often seems somewhat “tight” or strained. As presented, the recording is eighty-eight hours long; however, 70% is a comfortable listening speed, so the work is really about 126 hours long.

Navigation is atrocious!

It’s a Pity this is the only complete copy of Livy’s History. As a work of historiography, it’s one of the most comprehensive accounts of early Roman history from antiquity. And as a subject as a whole, Rome is by far my all-time favorite civilization to study, and I’d even go as far as admitting Ira an obsession. These are the only reasons I haven’t rated this recording lower! Narration is poor, navigation is abysmal! Good luck using it as a reference guide

The horrible book

The worst book I have ever listened to. Narrative is bad, subject would be interesting if you can get through the way it was written and read by.
