Reviews - What do customers think about Worlds of Roman Women: A Latin Reader (Focus Classical Commentaries)?
Interesting Dec 18, 2008
This is an interesting workbook. I definitely enjoyed some of the selections. However, I think it needed more notes. I often was left with questions about the grammar or syntax that the notes didn't answer. Without good notes, these workbooks are nothing more than reprints of Latin texts that one can find for free at one's school library or online.
