Beckie listens to The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation, Vol I: The Pox Party

Why did you read this book? It was on my “to read” Goodreads shelf for some reason, so I must have heard something good about it.

Has Jeremy read it? No.

42-word review: Octavian, raised as a prince, learns he’s a slave and his education an experiment just as the American Revolution is starting. A tragic story of slavery and betrayal that somehow ends up being incredibly tedious, largely thanks to the period writing style.

Overall rating: 3 botany lessons (out of 5)
