Allmänna fakta



The first book in the Roman Mysteries - a historical middle grade mystery series set in Rome AD79 - The Thieves of Ostia introduces four children - Flavia, Nubia, Lupus and Jonathan - who team up and find adventure and intrigue wherever they go.

I didn't hate this, but I can't say I really loved it either. It's an easy enough read. Flavia was a bit annoying. She was very pushy. But she could be kind. I mean, she plans to buy a scroll for her birthday but when she sees a girl her own age (Nubia) being sold as a slave, she decides to buy her. The others were alright though. The mystery made sense for all it gave me the creeps Violence against animals sucks. . Will likely read more of the series. 2 stars.… (mer)

Written for older children, "The Thieves of Ostia" was a great read for those who enjoy history and adventure. The author had clearly done her research as the novel was filled with interesting information about daily life in Ancient Rome. The four young protagonists - Flavian, Jonathan, Nubia and Lupus - were all relatable and I liked how diverse they were. Although the writing and mystery were simplistic, considering the target audience, I think "The Thieves of Ostia" would appeal to a range of readers.… (mer)

It’s ancient Rome and the dog belonging to one of Flavia’s neighbours has been killed and beheaded. Flavia and her friends plan to find out who did it.

This is a mix of children’s lit, historical fiction, and mystery. I listened to the audio, and overall it was ok. I did lose focus (as I seem to with audios more often lately) a few times, but the story was ok. There was a short author’s/historical note at the end, though being a kids’ book, it didn’t go into detail. Even with only an “ok” rating from me, it might still be a fun series to continue.… (mer)
