“New Pompeii”

Daniel Godfrey

In “New Pompeii” the population of Pompeii is brought forward in time by an energy company to live in a reconstruction of the city.   Given that this book has both time travel and ancient Romans, I should have really liked it.  However, despite a nice time travel twist at the end, I thought is was just OK.   The plot is too complex.  Not that I don’t like complex plots, but Godfrey buries the heart of his story in needless embellishments.  I tried the sequel (“Empire of Time”) but it wasn’t worth finishing.
