2.0 out of 5 stars This watch added 1/2 hour in time every few hours ..., September 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This watch added 1/2 hour in time every few hours when I first got it! I tried winding the dial several times and it appeared to regulate the watch for a while, but the cheap appearance(the dial especially), and the malfunctioning led me to return it.

3.0 out of 5 stars May stop charging after text/e-mail received!, August 28, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It works, but if you get a text or email during the night it may disconnect the charging ability. If that wasn't an issue, I'd give 5 stars. But that's a pretty BIG issue!

I love this watch. I own a full metal version Stuhrling watch, and it is considerably heavier. This watch weighs less and is more sporty with the rubber band. Versatile watch and GREAT value!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Historical Fiction!, March 24, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
First and foremost, this a great book! It's fun, doesn't get too bogged down, and is rather faced paced considering its length.
I really enjoy Roman history and about a third of my 170 Roman book collection is of the historical fiction variety. I have really enjoyed the in-depth tomes of Coleen McCullough and the fast paced reads of Steven Saylor. Robert Colton stands somewhere in between. Not the same level of detail as McCullough, but more complex than Saylor, for sure. Colton is able to develop the characters well and the story remains one that keeps the reader guessing.

I would wholeheartedly recommend this book if you enjoy historical fiction!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not faithful to the book, so don't expect much!, January 4, 2012
This review is from: The Eagle (DVD)
I read the book and two days later watched the movie, expecting to see how the movie dealt with the freeing of Esca and Marcus' friendship and treatment of him as an equal(it doesn't, and he's only freed at the end); how they would portray Marcus' friendship with the young girl, Cottia, which in the book almost came across as indecent due to the age discrepancy (she isn't in the movie, aside from possibly being in the crowd in the gladiator scenes); The tame wolf-cub (didn't see him); Marcus' deceit in acting as a Northerner and speaking their language (this is avoided); The burying of the Eagle (The 9th is reformed in the movie, which is silly.)

Had I not read the book first, maybe I'd have given this 3 stars, but seeing how the story was changed for the worse in my opinion, I can only give it 2 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spartacus---Review that is brief and to the point, July 14, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Spartacus (Mass Market Paperback)
This book is much better (in my estimation) that Spartacus by Lewis Grassic Gibbon. To begin with, it is eminently more readable. When I tried to power my way through Gibbon's Spartacus I couldn't but help daydream and fall asleep because the writing style was so archaic and required close attention. Howard Fast's book is filled with drama and character development that greatly enhances the story with which most people are familiar. While other books tend to die out near the end, I found Spartacus to actually become most entertaining in the final 65 pages.

2.0 out of 5 stars Better than sleeping pills, January 2, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Tyrant (Paperback)
In a word, Slow. Very slow. Especially the second half of the book. The excitement is missing. No real drama our tension. In fact, it may not even be as good as his effort with Rubicon, which was very slow, but st least had a modicum of tension and suspense (even though we knew the outcome.)
