Reviews for Rubicon
Cross the river and you will not be disappointed
I had been receiving positive feedback for this book for at least 2 or 3 years before giving it a try.
The initial pages appeared to me a slow start but once in motion it was a page turner. How different a society from our own... but at the same time how close and resembling...
There is the hard work, determination, stamina, courage and glory but also the greed, buffoonery, treason, perfidy, dishonesty, .. you name it.
Human nature at its best and worse... It is the full package.
Highly entertaining and sometimes strangely familiar. by JDP
