    1. Apologies for writing a review of a book that's long out of print and probably unavailable. I was rearranging my bookcase and found this. The copy is older than I am (yikes) and I got it (I think) when I was in elementary school and a teacher was getting rid of some old library books from her classroom. I was obsessed with Greek & Roman mythology at the time.I really wish this was still in circulation. Although it's written for a younger audience, the story is pretty brutal and unsparing. It [...]

    2. Minds out of the gutter, people!I read this when I was nine or ten, not long after it came out (1970). For all the romanticizing of ancient Athens and Rome, the story shows how just a slightly bad sequence of events turned a ten-year-old boy from what we would consider fairly well-to-do (he had his own personal slave) into a slave himself. Set before and during the eruption of Vesuvius, Pheidias grows up quickly as he learns to survive with exactly zero rights other than what his masters see fit [...]

    3. I remember reading this in high school- I had no clue it was meant to be a children's book! Still, it reminded me of 'Rifles for Watie', as it was from the point of view of a young boy in a perilous situation and having to adapt to an ever changing situation. It was a good book, and I want to read it again now- mostly because Laura Antoniou had read it as well.

    4. hahaha! Old school kid fiction! It rang a little bit true about ancient Rome and very very true about the values of 1970.

    5. This is pure, delightful pulp fiction, under a thin veneer of being literary fiction. Frankly, I don't know how this novel got past the editors of Books, but I'm glad it did. I first read the Books edition of the novel at age thirteen, feeling guilty because I enjoyed the slave's trials and tribulations way too much. Many years later, when I mentioned this 1968 historical novel during a discussion at LiveJournal among a bunch of us who read and wrote slave fiction, I discovered I was not alone [...]
