    Pompeii PDF å Paperback pompeii download, Pompeii PDFEPUBI have been a bit fascinated with the idea of Pompeii since I was a girl and the National Geographic ran photos of the people frozen in mid flight trying to escape the horrors of the eruption of Vesuvius Robert Harris has visited Pompeii through the story of Attilius the engineer in charge of the aueduct that served the area Before the eruption before the horror there is a problem with the flow of the water Attilius seeks to repair the breach in the aueduct and this leads him to be in Pompeii at exactly the wrong timeI did enjoy reading the story There was the tension of knowing what was to come and the wish to see Attilius survive the inevitable I can imagine that much of what people felt and the reactions that came too late were exactly as Harris depicted However I could never become truly invested in his characters and I therefore felt very little for their plight It seemed a bit trite like a 1970s disaster movie think Poseidon
