My book beginning today is from “The Grass Crown”, a book I am eager to start after reading its prequel, “The first man in Rome”. That book’s beginning, by the way, you can find here.
“The most exciting thing that’s happened during the last fifteen months,” said Gaius Marius, “is the elephant Gaius Claudius showed at the ludi Romani.”
That was to be expected. At the end of the last book it was obvious that the following few months would be calm, so this beginning comes as no surprise.
