Pompeii: City on Fire

Author: T. L. Higley
Genre: Life, adventure
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8.5
Type: Historical fiction
Number of pages: 389
Time period: Around 79 a.d. (so I’m calling it Bible times, though it’s a little after)
My overall opinion: Quite the book! Learning about Pompeii in this way was most interesting. I really enjoyed Higley’s writing, and the story was riveting. If you like historical fiction about Bible times (or rather, pre 500 or so) this one should interest you. Awesome story!
