Reviews of the The Man from Pomegranate Street

In this conclusion to the Roman Mysteries series, Flavia and her friends return to Rome in AD 81 to learn of the death of Emperor Titus.

I got my copy of this book a couple of years ago, knowing it was the last one in the series (17th) and haven't read it since, so when I reached into my cupboard to get a notebook the other day and discovered this, I decided to finish my Roman Mysteries era. It made just a lovely end to a great series and of me was one of the best of The Roman Mysteries. The Roman Mysteries are such a great series because of the way Caroline Lawrence takes you to the Roman times and lets you experience what it is like to live in that era, the pros and cons. The great thing about this book was it was like a character revival. As you read throughout the series, you learn some of the words meanings, and there are descriptions sometimes to help you understand what it is. The story begins unusually for the Roman Mysteries with Flavia getting ready for her wedding, three years after the Roman Mysteries was set. It ends by going back to the wedding where you find out who is it she is getting married to which I must say, all Roman Mysteries fans will approve of, I'm sure. This is lovely historical book with lots of unique, exciting things to read about with some amazing characters that I have got to know over the last seven years, it is sad to see the end of the series, even with some loose ends still there, although I think I can guess the outcome. Verdict: A lovely end - but read the rest of the books first.

I dont go for maybe it happened this way; maybe it didnt endings for mysteries, but I was okay with it in this instance. Content: Nothing actually happens, but molestation in a sexual sense and rape are quite often mentioned. This is one of the girly reads out of the series, and though this is intended for a younger audience, some of the content would keep me from recommending it to them.

Während dieser letzten Vorbereitungen erzählt sie den Anwesenden von ihrem letzten Abenteuer, das dazu führte, dass sie ihr Leben als Detektivin aufgab. Da auf sie immer noch ein Kopfgeld ausgesetzt ist, müssen sie als Sklaven verkleidet reisen. Sie verfolgen die letzten Stunden von Titus und finden tatsächlich Hinweise, dass jemand versucht hat ihn mit Gift zu töten, als Floppy sie mit der Nachricht überrascht, dass Domitian allen seinem Feinden eine Generalamnestie gewährt. Über dem ganzen Buch schwebt ein Hauch von Melancholie und Abschied, der durch viele Rückblicke noch verstärkt wird. Besonders schön ist der in eine mythologische Erzählung verpackte Heiratsantrag, den Aristo Nubia macht und wirklich spektakulär wie und wo sie ihn annimmt. Da tut es gut, dass Falvia letztendlich doch noch erfährt, dass sie in ihrem letzten Abenteuer doch nicht so falsch lag wie sie dachte, und doch beschließt wieder Fälle zu lösen.

I hated the last two books in the series. If that series ever comes out, and it's any good, I'll forgive the bad ending.
