Memoirs of Hadrianby Wojciech Adam Koszek ⋅ May 1, 2017 ⋅ Menlo Park
Hard to explain, but this book reminded me my favorite book on Egipt and ancient times.. Great insight into the thoughts of the Roman emperor.
This books is meant to be a collection of letters from Hedrian to Marcus Aurelius. Great content and excellent research has been done to actually provide enough details about the insights about Hadrian.
The structure was so-so, since “letters” are way too long, and in general I’d had a feeling that the story isn’t really going anywhere.
The fact that it’s all has been written by someone who actually didn’t live in the same times as Harian is pretty remarkable.
