So much better than the movie I really liked reading this book It took some time to get into it because I was a little confused about the start due to seeing the movie before I read the book However, not too long into the story it picked up and I found myself captivated by the characters and rooting for them all the way through Luckily, because it was so different from the movie, I didn t know exactly what was going to happen and who would live or die It s an interesting take on the Arthurian legend and so well written I found it hard to put down (((Read Book))) ⇧ L'ultima legione ⇸ Corre O Ano De DC Sentado No Trono Dos C Sares Est R Mulo Augusto, Um Jovem De Apenas Treze Anos E O Ltimo Imperador Romano Do Mundo Ocidental O Imp Rio Que Se Julgava Eterno E Glorioso Amea A Ruir Devido Aos Sucessivos Ataques Infligidos Pelas Tropas B Rbaras, Comandadas Por Odoacro A Estrat Gia Dos Invasores, Eficaz E Mort Fera, Culmina No Assassinato Da Fam Lia Imperial E Na Deposi O De R Mulo Augusto Que, Juntamente Com O Seu Fiel Preceptor, Ambrosinus, Enviado Para A Ilha De Capri A Legi O Nova Invicta A Quem Foi Confiada A Defesa Do Jovem Imperador Parece Ser A Ltima R Stia De Esperan A Manfredi Reconstitui, De Forma Magistral, A Atmosfera De Um Mundo Antigo Prestes A Desabar, Onde A Amizade, O Amor E A Coragem Se Revelam Os Grandes Vencedores Uma Obra Fascinante, Agora Tamb M No Grande Ecr M s ficci n que historia, m s aventurillas que eventos G nero Novela hist rica Lo que nos cuenta Un anciano druida echa la vista atr s y recuerda otros tiempos, cuando la Antigua Roma se hund a sin remedio y en el trono del Imperio moribundo se encuentra un ni o de trece a os que no es m s que la extensi n de la voluntad de su padre, pero los b rbaros est n por todas partes y capturan al joven dirigente y s lo un peque o grupo de legionarios puede intentar cambiar la situaci n Quiere saber m s de este libro, sin spoilers Visite Un libro m s interesante de lo que cre a, con grandes personajes que te llegan y una aventura que atraviesa todo lo que era un incre ble imperio Hac a mucho que no le a una novela historica y la verdad, no estoy para nada decepcionada. Analisi grammaticale Direi buona, anche se non eccelsa quanto il mio nome nessuno Ho notato nel romanzo solo un errore di un tempo verbale Non amo molto il narratore onnisciente e all inizio si un po spazzati, ma si fa presto l abitudine Ambientazione L Italia da Capri a Ravenna, fino all attraversamento delle Alpi e arrivo in Britannia.A mio avviso, Manfredi un maestro nel descrivere le strade romane, i luoghi di posta per la sosta dei cavalli, le valli e le campagne dell Italia di fine impero Amo anche le sue descrizioni delle battaglie tra i soldati romani e i barbari.Personaggi molto ben descritti sono Aurelio e la sua lealt , a e desiderio di libert Cerca in tutti i modi di proteggere l ultimo baluardo di Roma, con la sua cultura, arte e bellezza proteggendo Romolo.Livia Prisca con il suo a non molto celato verso il soldato Aurelio, che non ricorda il suo passato, la mia preferita Una donna forte, combattiva, che non si lascia scoraggiare da nulla e da nessuno.Ambrosine, il precettore di Romolo In realt si scopre essere un druido britanno giunto in italia anni prima per richiedere aiuto al vecchio imperatore Un uomo astuto, intelligentissimo e ricco di risorse Molte volte nel romanzo il gruppetto riesce a sfuggire dalle grinfie del persecutore grazie a lui e alla forza dei soldati romani.Wulfila, il generale barbaro al soldo di Odoacre che deve scovare Romolo Augusto e imprigionarlo in Italia e uccidere i suoi sostenitori.Giudizio personale bel libro Manfredi ha avuto una buona idea nel creare sia la figura di Ambrosine sia di far fuggire Romolo Augusto in Britannia Da leggere, lo consiglio There aren t many books that I ll stop reading I hate that feeling of a lack of accomplishment But honestly, there are too many good, fun and or interesting books to read rather than slogging through some simply unacceptable writing.Manfredi s The Last Legion has a pretty solid story in broad strokes it paints a picture of the very last days of the Western Roman Empire, the kidnapping of the Last Emperor Romulus Agustus, and his rescue I can t tell you of the plot because I couldn t finish the book.I got almost halfway through and came upon this gem Romulus Augustus to Livia one of his saviors , discussing the strong silent hero Are you Aurelius s girlfriend Livia No, I m notRA Would you like to be Livia I don t think it concerns you.Really RA sounds like a 5 year old whose parents have recently gone through a divorce and mommy is now starting to dateRomulus s character ranges from strong budding emperor, to mentally challenged half wit, to brooding insolent teenager It was all over the place.It occurred to me, as it did to another reviewer, that the problem may simply be the translation If that s the case, then the translation needs a decent edit I ve not read any of Manfredi s other work, but it s wildly popular If it s not the translation, then no need for me to add his Alexander series to my Wishlist.If you re looking for a fun Roman Military read, go with Scarrow s Eagle series, or Michael Curtis Ford s The Fall of Rome which addresses the same time period and ends with the fall of Romulus Augustus If you want something deeper that touches on the end of the Empire, go with Breem s Eagle in the Snow.But by all means, beware of The Last Legion. Stranamente questo uno di quei casi in cui il film centomila volte meglio del libro.Sono 448 pagine che nessuno mi restituir pi , sprecate per un libro non brutto ma assolutamente noioso e scritto male.Partiamo dall inizio.Siamo alla fine dell Impero romano, i barbari hanno praticamente il possesso della penisola, poich sono loro a fornire le forze militari, ma nominalmente l imperatore quel ragazzetto viziato di Romolo Augustolo.Se all inizio avevo compassione di lui, perch poverino non l aveva chiesto lui di ricoprire quella posizione, dopo un po ogni sentimento di questo genere verso di lui svanito completamente perch insoffribile, oltre che noioso da morire.Ma questo un tratto comune a tutti i personaggi visto che non ce n uno che abbia un briciolo di personalit.La situazione, come gi accennato, non delle pi tranquilla e la Nona Invicta hahah Che ironia viene sconfitta da barbari e solo pochissimi si salvano.Aurelio tra questi e cerca di avvisare il padre di Romolo, che per viene ammazzato dai suoi alleati barbari ma che sorpresa perch secondo loro non stato ai patti Seguono varie avventure di cui francamente non mi ricordo essendo emozionanti come un cetriolo e si arriva a Capri, dove Romolo e il suo maestro sono imprigionati e dove vengono salvati in fretta dopo che oh l l si ritrova la spada di Giulio Cesare.Perch Augustolo il legittimo erede, ovviamente, altrimenti col piffero che una spada del genere si sarebbe mostrata a lui.Altre avventure in giro per la penisola e finalmente si arriva in Britannia, dove viene ricostruita la legione e viene sconfitto quel povero cristo di Wulfia a cui va sempre tutto male.Il difetto di questo libro che carta sprecata.Non entusiasma, non scandalizza, annoia solamente e tutto eventi storici, avventure, personaggi, ecc buttato l.La storia d a tra Livia Prisca e il legionario terrificante, sembra sbocciare da non si sa dove e i sentimenti sono inesistenti, non si capisce perch i due dovrebbero amarsi.Inoltre il misterioso passato di Aurelio stato inventato apposta per dare un aurea di mistero al personaggio e per salvare capre e cavoli.Sul serio, sto qui non si ricorda non si sa quanti anni del suo passato e non ci ha mai pensato prima di incontrare Livia Prisca Davvero Io sarei preoccupata se mi accorgessi che non so cosa ho fatto cinque anni fa.Poi la super rivelazione finale che serve a scusare il povero piccino che altrimenti si sarebbe incolpato a morte per la sua scelta view spoiler aprire le porte della citt ai barbari per cercare di salvare la vita ai propri genitori hide spoiler This is the first book I ve read that was originally published in a different language, translated into English for this edition Therefore I m no expert when it comes to publishing what counts as a foreign language version, I still believe one of the basic requirements is that you employ a translator who actually speaks the secondary language fluently, not just give your new wife preferential treatment.At first, you naturally blame yourself for being common and not posh enough to know certain English words but then as it happens again and again you realise that the supposed translator is just making a wild stab at the words he or she wants If they re not completely mixing words up such as drowsed instead of dozed, escaped instead of evaded they re just plain making words up Among the ones I found in the first chapter alone were relict presumably an attempt at the word derelict, and hie which I haven t a clue what word it s meant to be.Add into that the fact that the story feels very much than individual strands stitched together rather than one weaving story taking you on a magical carpet ride, thanks again to the ropey translation.This is all before you even get to any quibbles with the story With a situation as unique as state of the Western Roman Empire in the fifth century CE, it would have been wise to include at least some kind of background history or an idea of what the build up to the events in the book were.As it is, Flavius Orestes own colubrine rise to power is not mentioned nor is the fact that the Western Emperor, Nepos, is actually still alive and in another province All elements which could have formed a really good story in and of itself Oreste s involvement in this book stretches little further than holding a dinner party before his villa is invaded and he is killed in defence of his home In reality, Orestes actually scraped together an army and met Odoacer in the field of battle before his side lost and he was executed.But then what s the truth when it comes to a bit of historical fiction, especially one which, to all intents purposes, seems to have been written for a Hollywood movie.This actually had the making of what could have been a good story, if distinctly middling The remarkably poor amateurish translation work not only ruins any headway you try to make with the story but actually begins to grate and prevents you immersing yourself in it.Next time you decide to have your books translated into English, Signor Manfredi, do the wise thing and either ditch the preferential treatment you ve shown your wife get someone who is actually fluent in English to translate it, or at the very least get someone to proof read the final draft.Poor. manfredi s Alexandrian trilogy will remain for the rest of my days worthy of admiration and a magnificent bounty of inspiration and adventure Perhaps its unfair to judge those tomes, individually or collectively, against Legion, yet I must for a writer must be judged on not solely what he can produce but also his capabilities manfredi had set the bar so much higher than this book reaches, with his other offerings, that its surely either laziness or the first strong signs of a descent into dementia to find such abject failure attached to his name.only a child could enjoy and endure the impossible providence of the heroes chapter after chapter reveals miraculous escape from the jaws of defeat and demise with the finale confirming everything wrong about the book the most fierce barbarian of the novelscape bested by a childI d strongly advise delving into Spartan, Tyrant and the aforementioned Alexander series, as forcefully as I d demand avoiding this stale yarn.wretched as palatable as a slice of shitpie. I love historical novels and I admire Manfredi s attention to detail and his obvious depth of research I find myself checking his characters and events on the internet or in history books to know and that is always a good thing for any book.This novel feels a bit like a Hollywood film and not just because it has already been filmed There s the same action packed plot I wonder if there were times when all that happened was that they were simply walking in the forest There s the tortured, ripped hero, the nubile heroine maybe a little too much Halle Berry in the descriptions The bad guy is really ugly of course and we all know what happens to the bad guy in the end I did like the very believable Arthurian twist nice idea, although the way Ygraine appears felt just a little oddIt was a good but fairly undemanding read Perfect for planes, trains and exercise bikes.
