Críticas:

Praise from the United Kingdom for "Persian Fire
"Excellent . . . Holland is a cool-headed historian who writes here no less authoritatively and engagingly on classical Greece than he did on ancient Rome in his last book, "Rubicon . . . There is an even-handedness in Holland's treatment of both Greek and Persian cultural riches that is rare in popular accounts of these wars."
--Mary Beard, "Times Literary Supplement
"It is . . . a testament to Holland's superlative powers as a narrative historian that he brings this tumultuous, epoch-making period dazzlingly to life, and makes the common reader familiar again with one of the most thrilling periods in world history . . . [Holland] has conquered this new territory with more power and panache than any platform-heeled King of Kings."
--William Napier, "The Independent
"A book as spirited and engaging as "Persian Fire deserves to last . . . [Holland's] real achievement is to have turned the stuff of public-school translation exercises into vibrant, bloodthirsty popular history, told with a rich sense of irony and irresistible narrative timing."
--Dominic Sandbrook, "The Telegraph
"["Persian Fire] is an unequivocal argument for the relevance of ancient history. As we stand at the start of a century that many would like to see as a time when civilizations are doomed to clash, Holland writes of a war between East and West which predates the Crusades, which is older than Islam or Christianity . . . fascinating."
--Geraldine Beddell, "The Observer
Praise for "Rubicon
"[A] book that really held me, in fact, obsessed me . . . Narrative history at its best." --Ian McEwan, author of "Atonement and"Saturday, "The Guardian Books of the Year
"Stunning . . . "Rubicon is unusually well-informed by any standard and impressive for its large but not overwhelming cast of characters . . . Holland keeps his narrative moving at chariot-race speed." --"Newsday
"A fascinating picture of Roman city life . . . In every aspect of this story, Holland expertly makes the Romans, so alien and yet so familiar, relevant to us." --"Los Angeles Times

"[Tom] Holland has a sense for the golden moment, is a widely read intellectual, shows a keen wit--and the result is an engaging story that the general public will find worth relearning . . . As a classically trained nonacademic he writes far better than most of those who know more than he about the ancient world . . . [He] captures the previous age in a riveting story, well told in "Persian Fire."
--Victor Davis Hanson, "Times Literary Supplement
