Finished reading: Pompeii by Robert Harris 📚. I am a sucker for stories where engineer is the main character and engineering is the real hero. The book starts two days before the eruption when the aqueduct near Vesuvius stops working for unknown reason. The new engineer just fresh from Rome needs to solve the engineering problem and figure out what happened to his predecessor and if he can complete his project despite corrupt local officials.
This is a fun book and the story flows effortlessly forward. Not sure if it is a great book it was one that I loved very much
