Summary and Info
"A Cabinet of Roman Curiousities" is subtitled "Strange Tales and Surprising Facts from the World's Greatest Empire." I thought it sounded interesting and would be a fun read. It is actually pretty interesting, but it's not that fun. It's basically a glossary of Roman facts arranged byt topic (family, food, the Army, etc.) but after the first couple of tidbits in each section, it is stretching to be entertaining. The facts are, well, just factual. It is probably a better book for picking up and reading an excerpt or two at a time than a front to back read. I tried to read it through and got bored, but flipping around pages was entertaining enough.
