(PDF READ) [Gladiator Fight for Freedom] ↠ Simon Scarrow

Not sure that a lot of middle andor high school students would want to read about a character this oung With that said the action and violence adds #a lot of reality and would very much keep the interest even of older readers if #lot of reality and would very much keep the interest even of older readers if can just get past his outhI am actually surprised that this is the only book of this topic to come out I know the Starz Spartacus series is very popular and well written and this really nicely connects to that as well as the earlier Rome series that was on Showtime Like those two series I think this novel presents a fairly realistic view of life at the timeThe only major shortcoming I felt after finishing the book is that I really would have liked Scarrow to have included an Author s Note to talk a little bit about his research about the times and whatwho was real and what was part of his creative process Similarly it might have been helpful to include a map particularly in the early portion of the book when the enslaved Livia and Marcus are being shipped around and a glossary of Roman terms to help with keeping straight some of the weapons the money and the types of gladiators That is nitpicking thoughI am greatly looking forward to the next volume in the series 1I decided to read Fight for Freedom by Simon Scarrow because I enjoy learning about ancient Greece and so since Rome is Right next to Greece I decided to read this book i also had a read of the blurb and saw that his father was murdered as this book i also had a read of the blurb and saw that his father was murdered as centurion which high rank in the Roman Military so i wanted to find out 2One of the Characters I found interesting in Fight for Freedom was Marcus Cornelius Primus because at the start his father was confronted be a tax collector s thug and so marcus decided to train his dog his best and only friend into a guard dog a fierce and killer dog i found that interesting because i don t think i would do something like that but his dog was still killed along with his father 3My favorite uote from the book was said by Brixus a lieutenant of the Famous Spartacus who said to Marcus ou carry the mark of the rebellion Punainen kuin veri you carry the mark of Spartacus i fond this interesting because he said in a slave house and nearlyelled it Saying this would have gotten him and Marcus killed if Someone had heard them4Something I thought deeply about in the book was that marcus when they were being transported to the slave market he would keep telling people he was a citizen of Rome which kept getting him Beaten until they threatened to hurt his mother 35 starsBig warning about spoilers Don t look at the titles of the rest of the series before Make You Mine you finish this book orou ll be able to guess the big reveal at the end very easily It is predictable anyway but stillThis is the kind of book that would have been much believable if Marcus the main character had been two ears older His age works at first because he still has a lot of childhood innocence and believes that people will believe him if he tells the truth and that people will fight for what is right However as soon as loses that he starts behaving in a much mature way a way that is a bit too mature for a boy who just turned elevenEven though most of the plot was predictable and unsurprising this book is written in a way that kept me reading until I reached the last page and left me wanting to read the rest of the series.

C and the story was very interesting I really liked the way that he described his situation sThis book is great for people who live historical book s This book had everything but something new The same old story Someone makes the MC s life a living hell bonus points if this someone kills the MC s family as well MC swears revenge against the aforementioned someone Then throw in a lot of complications bullies starvation poverty life and death situations In short all tragedies imaginable And BAM There s the ultimate plot twist Sadly not even the plot twist here surprised me All I had as a reaction was Okay Whatever Like I give a damnThe author s unrealistic portrayal of Marcus the MC did not help one bit He was barely eleven the MC did not help one bit He was barely Eleven Why The Heck Was He Talking Like A Guy why the heck was he talking like a guy his late teensAaaaannnnndddd this book ended on a cliffhanger But I couldn t care less Surprisingly good I ve always been intrigued by gladiators and the story of Spartacus so when I saw this YA series I thought I d give it a read just out of curiosity Wow Am I happy I didThe story surrounds Marcus a ten ear old Roman who lives with his mother and father Boooooooring For a long time I have been interested in historical fiction and ancient Rome has a special place in my heart when it comes to interests This is the first volume of a new series about Marcus Cornelius Primus As the book opens Marcus father Titus Cornelius Pollenius is on the battlefield fighting in the conclusion to the Spartarcus wars The rebelling slaves have all but lost Just at the conclusion of the battle Titus saves the leading General Pompeius from an attack by one of the slaves and is rewarded with a selection of the recently captured slaves Titus chooses Marcus mother LiviaAfter this opening the novel jumps ahead 10 The Courage to Stand Alone Letters from Prison and Other Writings years The family has settled on an island estate only to find its fortunes fading largely due to struggling crops from their farms They are greatly in debt and everything falls apart when Decimus comes calling after his money Since none is forthcoming Desimus decides to take it in the form of the family itself Titus is killed and Livia and Marcus are sold into slavery Unfortunately they are separated with Marcus finding himself taking on the role of gladiator in trainingFrom their the story takes on common forms Marcus is confronted with a school bully while also being befriended by a wizened former gladiator that not only provides guidance but might hold Marcus future in his hands Marcus would like nothing better than to get free and reconnect with his mother The hope is that someone could understand that he and his mother are really free citizens who have basically been kidnapped then maybe they will have their freedom back This would really be great if General Pompeius heard of their situation since he owes Marcus father so much Unfortunately few believe the word of a slave How will Marcus survive his training as a gladiator and help gain his and his mother s freedom That is the real uestion and the storyline keeps the pages turning I really liked the story but it will have a tough time finding an audience Marcus is only 10ears old at the start of the book and the author does nothing to hide the violent and difficult times in which he lives That makes this a tough read for most upper elementary school students and I am.
