Hannibal

by Ross Leckie

Category: Romance, Sagas & Historical / Historical
Publisher:
Publication date: 19961107
Number of pages: 255

Description:
In a narrative of breathtaking range and power, Ross Leckie presents not only a vivid re-creation of the great struggle of the Punic wars, but succeeds in bringing the almost mythical figure of Hannibal to life. A tragic chronicle of love and hate, heroism and cruelty, Hannibal is an epic recasting of the life of one of humanity's greatest adventurers, who learns through suffering that man is but a shadow of a dream.

What the papers say:
** 'Hannibal tells his own story in this splendid historical novel. Leckie writes unflinchingly of this world of blood, battle and atrocity' - SUNDAY TELEGRAPH. ** 'Visually rich and satisfyingly credible in detail. It's triumph is to bring the world of Carthage to life again' - SPECTATOR ** 'A tremendous novel in the class of I, Claudius..a work of enduring value.' - ALLAN MASSIE

Author's Biography:
Since reading Classics at Oxford, Ross Leckie has worked variously as a farm labourer, journalist, roughneck, teacher and copywriter.
