Old classic: 'The Last Days of Pompeii', by Edward Bulwer-Lytton. Right here in the library.

"Pompeii" by Robert Harris. Superb novel.

I second that. I read it a few weeks ago. A great read.

I'm surprised they haven't made a film of it. It has all the ingredients of a classic disaster movie.

Watched the tv programme about Pompeii last night and the graphics were really good. Did you catch it?

I visited Pompeii and Herculaneum in the summer of 2010 and was absolutely brilliant. I preferred the smaller town of Herculaneum to Pompeii but still eye-opening.

Yes, excellent. Probably inspired by the new "Pompeii and Herculaneum" exhibition at the British Museum (which I'm going to next Friday).

Awesome. I am in London in July; might pop in and have a look, although I've actually seen it all in Italy.

Me too, but British Museum exhibitions are always wonderful. They had a fabulous "Shakespeare" exhibition on last autumn. The books which accompany the exhibitions are great, too.
