Roman Diary is a great adventure story that tells about the ancient Romans and their culture. I love how the book has a glossary and goes into detail about event, gladiators and battles. I also enjoyed the pictures. The only negative things about it that I could think of was that it didn't tell the definitions of some of the words right way. It wasn't until the end of the book do you find out. I would highly recommend this book to people who like historical fiction books and who are interested in how the Romans slaves lived.
