Hijo del Consul Posteugillo Son of the Consul is the first book of a trilogy by Santiago Posteguillo which may well be the most comprehensive santiafo of the Second Punic War and it’s aftermath written in modern times. There is only one slight problema-the book is in Spanish and there is no English translation available.
The author says that he has thus far been unable to interest an English language publisher in publishing an English Language edition. Nevertheless, with a couple years of high school Spanish and sqntiago lap top with Google Translate handy, the Spanish edition is not that difficult to read, and for the Roman history buff, it’s well worth the effort.
The book also delves into the life and motivations of Hannibal, the Carthaginian general who took an army over the Alps to invade Rome. A major character in the book is Quintus Fabius Maximus who is portrayed as the implacable enemy of the Scipios and the family of Aemilius Paullus.
Fabius is constantly accompanied by his protege Marcus Porcius Cato.

Interspersed among the accounts of the movers and shakers of the time is the story of Titus Macius a wretched ne’re-do-well living a barely sustainable life on the streets of Rome. When asked by Scipio about his past he says “Servitude, merchant, ruined, beggary, military service, beggary again, semi-slavery and always misery. Although I may disagree with the way Posteguillo portrays certain things, I think he has done leiones masterful job of making the history of this period come alive.

Heredamos un legado que tiene un gran impacto en nuestra cultura, valores, leyes e idioma. Entenderla nos ayuda a entendernos. I enjoyed this reading and will continue with the trilogy.
At the beginning I preferred the series with Cato and Macro from Simon Scarrow, which I have read completely this summer 14 booksbut later I got deeper into this book. Only a couple of little mistakes: Other than that, outstanding. One person found this helpful. Historia entretenida, un poco largas las descripcionesambientales. No me gustan los libros que no tienen final y te obligan a comprar la siguiente parte.
The edition consists of three different books. I received only the first unit at he cost of the three books. I kept the first unit and was refunded with the balance. Later I acquired the other two books from another source. I consider this book as a masterpiece. To translate into English an expert will be required familiar in the Punic Wars.
If it is done many people will have of pleasure of reading it. This is an excellent historical novel. One, they are often less creative than pure fiction, and less accurate than history; and two, it is hard to tell what is history and what is fiction when the two are woven together, even when the story is set in a period that I’ve studied.
And I’m delighted that I did. My view of historical novels has totally changed after these two books. Africanus is long, and is just the first of a trilogy of long volumes, so the size requires a big commitment, and then it is not in my mother tongue but in my second language.
Yet once I picked it up, I couldn’t stop reading. I found it fascinating, alive, filling my imagination and possessing my mind when I wasn’t reading, and absorbing the totality of my mind when I was. Now, through Africanus, I for the first time understand the greatest value of historical fiction: Yes, it’s still true that the historical record is filled out by fiction, which means that it is the author’s interpretation of the characters’ psychology, and the author’s imagination filling in the blanks.
But the feeling for Roman posteguilpo and values of the 3rd century BCE comes to life. And Africanus and his family and friends and contemporaries come to life. I am now inspired not only to read the other two volumes, but to study the historical record as well. See all reviews.
