Reviews of The Dream of Scipio

Overall customer rating: 5.000

fascinating on different levels

by leilani on Jun 14, 2007

Dream of Scipio takes place in Avignon, France in three different and important eras. First, right after the fall of Rome and the start of the "dark ages," where the only learning took place in the monasteries. 2nd era, the middle ages where the Church and the Kings rivaled for power; 3rd era: France in World War Il when the Nazis invaded the country. The protagonist (each one different according to the times), finds himself making vital decisions that affect not only his own life but those with powerful influence who could change events.The book does not proceed in l-2-3 order but devotes segments to each period and switches around so that the reader is kept in suspense as to the plot resolution for each dramatic era. The reader will learn many new facts of these time periods, and will be entertained by all the characters portrayed.
