Sign up for LibraryThing to find out whether you'll like this book. To appreciate the scope, the cruelty, and the sadism of the games, one must read this book. I was hoping there would be more insight into the gladiatorial aspects of the games, as I'm gathering info for my next novel and need more background on the gladiator schools, way of life, etc.
If anybody can recommend some good books on that subject, I'd appreciate it. The son of a U. His fiction is just bad. It must be said.
Come closer though, here's the gold: his nonfiction is deeply researched, bullet proof accurate yet reads like populist pulp. Gobble it! It's great! We can say more about Mannix, like he wrote the Disney classic "the fox and the hound" and so on, but let's on to the review of "The way of the Gladiator". Surprise, it's about gladiators. You think you know but you don't. Not like this. The depth, the detail, the variety. It's staggering stuff.
His knowledge, historical veracity and structure of presentation are artworks of informed and informing. Get down in the guts and the sand and prepare to go "whaaa? I did not know that. Mannix describes in this book. Usually, only the bare bones pun not intended of the games are detailed in other accounts, but here the author details the broad range of imaginative executions condemned criminals and gladiatorial contests arranged for the Romans mob.
With the games reduced over the years from the Spartacan duels between trained gladiators to the wholesale slaughter of huge numbers of amateurs armed with swords in arenas awash with blood, women in the stands scratched their cheeks in their ecstatic bloodlust and men pounded their seats. If you get too romantic a view of Rome, this will set you straight. Highly recommended. NickHowes Aug 24, I wasn't aware gladiator games had spectator shows of animals from drunken chimpanzees, zebras, baboons to wild boars raping condemned women as part of their entertainment in the arena, until I read this book.
There were actually men the bestiarii who trained wild beast to not only kill and eat people, but sexually violate them as well! Author Daniel P. Mannix offers up plenty of shocking events in this absorbing read, which you probably never learnt about in ancient history class. The men seesawed desperately back and forth trying to stay on the up-side, so that they wouldn't be eaten.
Can you imagine? It must have been the quickest seesawing one had ever seen. This provided great amusement for the arena crowd as did other countless sadistic pre-game shows.
Of course the principal focus is on the gladiators themselves. There is a lot of fascinating information about the day to day lives of the gladiators, Romans, and the political power houses behind the scenes, however some of the additional spectacles going on during the games were just as interesting, if not more fascinating.
Those About to Die by Daniel P. Members Reviews Popularity Average rating Mentions 6 , 3. In a vast marble Colosseum larger than the Yankee Stadium, the people of Rome, patrician and commoner, flocked to see gladiators mangled beneath the hoofs and wheels of horses and chariots, slaughtered by half-starved wild beasts and butchered by well-armed and armoured professionals. With the Empire in decline, death and torture became the only spectacles that satisfied the decadent Romans' longing.
The Emperor Trajan gave one set of games that lasted days; at its end, 11 people and 10 animals had been killed. The people of Rome loved it- and they wanted more.
This is the extraordinary and true account of the Roman Games and the gladiators who fought and died in the cruelest, costliest spectacles of all time … more.

The Fox and the Hound, Daniel P. Mannix
The book is in my opinion, the best book ever written from the point of view of the animals. The author did a superb job of describing what their world is like; and an excellent job of guessing what they must think and feel. He admits it is guess work, and explains how difficult it is to write such a book and not be accused of humanizing the animals. But again, he did a superb job. It's powerful, earthy, and 'worth the journey'.

Hey, this is an awesome review. I totally agree with you about the movie, and the book I was seraching for PDF and came here by accident, so I still have to read it! By the way, you should read "Children of men" and make a review to. It's another case where the movie is WAY better than the book!

Сьюзан смотрела на Стратмора, не веря своим ушам. У нее возникло ощущение, что она разговаривает с абсолютно незнакомым человеком. Коммандер послал ее жениха, преподавателя, с заданием от АНБ и даже не потрудился сообщить директору о самом серьезном кризисе в истории агентства.
- Моя фамилия Халохот. - Его голос доносился как будто из его чрева. Он протянул руку.
Но когда ТРАНСТЕКСТ расшифровал эти потоки информации, аналитики тут же увидели в них синхронизированный через Интернет отсчет времени. Устройства были обнаружены и удалены за целых три часа до намеченного срока взрыва. Сьюзан знала, что без ТРАНСТЕКСТА агентство беспомощно перед современным электронным терроризмом. Она взглянула на работающий монитор. Он по-прежнему показывал время, превышающее пятнадцать часов.
