The Eagle of The Ninth Zusammenfassung

The Eagle of The Ninth Rosemary Sutcliff

The Ninth Legion marched into the mists of northern Britain - and they were never seen again. Four thousand men disappeared and their eagle standard was lost. It's a mystery that's never been solved, until now . . . Marcus has to find out what happened to his father, who led the legion. So he sets out into the unknown, on a quest so dangerous that nobody expects him to return. The Eagle of the Ninth is heralded as one of the most outstanding children's books of the twentieth century and has sold over a million copies worldwide. Rosemary Sutcliff writes with such passion and attention to detail that Roman Britain is instantly brought to life and stays with the reader long after the last page has been turned. The book is also now the subject of a major film.

The Eagle of The Ninth Bewertungen

'Decades later, I can still hear echoes of The Eagle of the Ninth in my head : the chink of mail, the tired beat of the legionaries' feet.' * The Independent *
'These tales of Roman Britain have yet to be surpassed for their non-patronising prose and adult dangers. Sutcliff makes Classics and archaeology uniquely thrilling for children.' * Amanda Craig, The Times *
'A beautifully written and exciting tale of a young man's mission to save the reputation of his dead father' * Simon Scarrow, Big Issue *
Great stuff that should not be forgotten! * Amie Thomson, Big Issue in Scotland *
