From The Reading Table: The Ides of April

The Ides of April by Lindsey Davis

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I recently started to re-listen to this series. I am constantly amazed at how much I discover when I go back to a previously read (listened to) book!

Having endured the angry teenager from the Falco series, the shift to focus on said no longer teenager has been quite enjoyable. That being said, in the first part of the book, we are dealing with a cynical, still angry adult who has become quite jaded in her opinions and behaviors. Yes, she’s been through a lot, but still.

It wasn’t until she actually met and started to work with “the Runner” that these behaviors started to temper. Much like his did. Knowing how this relationship evolves, it is an interesting experience to see how two people can affect each other so profoundly.

I’ve been listening to the entire series and am enjoying not only the new characters, but the occasional visits with those from the original series. This literally ties all the strings of a family together.

I still strongly recommend this series and am looking forward to the next installment. Can’t come soon enough!
