Ian Ross The Mask of Command is a historical novel about a Roman centurion Castus appointed as Dux Limitis Germaniae in command of all Roman forces on the Germanic frontier near the border with the Rhine in 317318 AD in the time of the first Christian Emperor Constantine. Its a great yarn fast paced with plenty of action and intrigue and politics as only the Romans can do. The story is well developed and characters are realistic and believable. Castus has to deal with the barbarian forces on the border as well as protect his own son and the Emperors son Caesar Crispus from danger from both for and friend in this remote place where survival of the fittest and smartest prevails.This is an historical adventure novel about Romans in the twilight of the Empire well written and a great read for someone who like this type of literature.

Its content is written by Ernst Toller using his manuscripts that were saved and smuggled out of Germany by the main protagonist his lover Dora Fabian an activist of high intellect extreme courage strength and unmoving commitment to the Political Resistance movement that subsequently leads to her death betrayed by one of her own Hans the husband of Ruth who himself was within the movement. Toller commits suicide on the completion of his book and one is left to question the real motive behind this decision.

Funder's descriptors of the actions of the main characters made it also easy for the reader to form their views of them from the Vain weak idealistic Toller the displaced confused shallow Hans and the strong intelligent and Courageous Dora.

Review by INGRID DICKINS X0401328597 The story is told through two voices the first one being that of the elderly German Judinna Ruth living in Sydney in 2011 and the other of the Exiled Ernst Toller the famous playwright and Poet dictated to his secretary from his library in New York in 1939. Intriguing and made one want to read on. Ruth tells her story from the mind of young Ruth in the 30s and not from her memories as an older person leaves it to the reader to wonder why this is as both stories seem to overlap.

Anne is a frisky girl who is adopted by Matthew and Martha Cuthbert. She has a bug imagination and is always getting her friends or herself tangled in not ideal situations. It is a good book that is certainly interesting. This book talks about Anne slowly managing her wild imagination. In one of the chapters Anne convinces her good friends to set her adrift in the Lake of Shining Waters and of course it doesn't go as planned.

I am in year four and nine years old. The Midnight Gang is a book about a group of children going on adventures at midnight. My favourite parts of the book are when George has his dream come true...or does it come true. Would you chase after the oldest lady in the entire hospital who is dangling down. Holding a bunch of balloonsI rate this amazing book 4 out of 5 stars. I think that people who like adventures getting up to mischief would really enjoy this book. But even if you don't like that stuff I think you will still like this amazing book.Also if you like this book you should defiantly try.... GANGSTA GRANNY. It's another great book by David walliams another great book about adventure and mischief.I hope you enjoy.
