    The Race I sit down on the hard stone bench at the Circus Maximus. The men around me have already begun getting drunk from the masses of wine in their paws. I try to ignore them but resistance is futile. I hear the trumpets and the chariots come out of their grooming stables. I thank Jupiter that the men around me get their attention turned to another subject than just the liqueur.

    Book Evaluation Cirque du Freak The book I read was called Cirque du Freak The Saga of Darren Shan. This is a quick and easy to read thriller for the whole family. Darren Shan tells this 266 page "true story" about his life as a child wonderfully. This story is an attention grabber and once you start, it will be hard to put down. The setting itself is pretty simple. It starts in what I assume is about a fifth or sixth grade classroom and then falls into the circus. Of course, this is no ordinar...

In its day, the Coliseum was a marvel to look at. It was a full three story elliptical arcade (row of arches) with a fourth story full of windows. In betw...
