The great Carthaginian hated ancient Rome. Having brought elephants over the Alps, broken the fabled legions, and reached the gates of Rome, Hannibal Barca vies with Robert E. Lee for the title of the most brilliant general ever to lose a war. "There is so much blood. Blood and hate," Hannibal writes in this, his novel. And this was gore before there were special effects. Right away somebody has his nose cut off. Leckie has reached back over 2,000 years and brought the brutality of those times vividly to life. Matthews has a fine, erudite voice and reads with force and feeling. B.H.C. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
