    The Green Bronze Mirror is the story of Karen, a fifteen year old girl who finds herself transported to Roman Britain during Nero's reign. Found by a group of Roman legionaries, Karen becomes a slave and is consequently sold several times till she ends up in Rome, in the House of Caechina, taking care of children. She doesn't give up on her dream to go back to her time though...

    I found the story interesting and engaging, very much like the books I read while a teenager, and that first made me realise how much I loved history. Because, while telling the story of Karen, we are treated to the way of life during the Roman Empire in a simple and interesting way, there's even a bit about early christianity and the religious persecution. This a book that Lynne Ellison wrote when she was still a teenager and I think it shows in the simple writing and in the fact that Karen never really is in any danger, she always finds friends who protect her. But that doesn't make the story less worthy, it makes for a perfect children's read and I don't hesitate to recommend it as such.

    This particular edition does suffer from some proofing problems that hopefully will be solved in future editions.

    Grade: 4.5/5

    Fifteen-year old Karen is on holiday in Britain when she finds an ancient mirror that transports her back in time 2000 years where the world she knows is under the Roman Empire and she is mistaken for a slave. And so begins a roller coaster adventure in an era where slaves were easily bought and sold, and Christians brutally persecuted. Karen is a spunky character who makes the best of her difficult situation as she makes friends and tries to find a way to get back home.

    Young readers are sure to enjoy this book that will give them a taste of what it was like to live during the reign of Nero in the young city of Rome. The story includes a scene at the Amphitheatre where the Romans flocked to quench their sadistic thirst for entertainment. It contains some gruesome details of what happened in the arena for sport. Karen is naturally horrified by what she sees. Her adventure continues as she associates with the first-century Christians. She finds herself escaping to save her life when the Christians are accused of burning Rome.

    I noted one historical inaccuracy in this book. The author mentions one of the Christians wearing a cross, which is not possible since this religious icon (as used by Christendom) was only introduced in the third century C.E. and the story setting is 64 C.E. Furthermore, the early Christians did not use graven images in their worship. The book History of the Christian Church (N.Y. 1897, J.F. Hurst, Vol. I, p. 366) says concerning first-century Christians, “There was no use of the crucifix and no material representation of the cross.”

    Since this book is a reprint, I wondered if the text was reprinted exactly as it appears in the original version because the font type is small, the dialogue sequence is sometimes confusing and, unfortunately, it is poorly edited. I caught so many typos as well as grammatical and punctuation errors. However, if one looks past all this, The Green Bronze Mirror is certainly worth reading and will be enjoyed by fans of time-travel books.

    After reading through the first two chapters of The Green Bronze Mirror I was ready to give up. I persevered though as The Green Bronze Mirror is quite a small book.
    The main reason that I wanted to give up reading was that for a finished copy of a book this was riddled with errors. I got so annoyed with how many errors there were in this book that I checked the publisher’s website and found out that they have since reprinted the book with fewer errors. This is really good because it means others don’t have to suffer through them.
    The story itself was quite interesting. I think that it’s good if you’re interested in getting an introduction to what life was like in the time of Emperor Nero. It actually explained a little of the history as the novel progressed so that was really good.
    Some of the content made me think that this book is probably better for people around 14 and older. Just because some of the things are slightly more mature.
    I thought that the concept of the story was great but the execution was average. I found it hard to believe that the main character Karen, was 15 and I found it even harder to believe that another character was 18. Also, the main characters behaviour was slightly unbelievable as she just brushed off the fact that she’d travelled in time through a mirror, as though it was one of the most ordinary things around.
    I think that The Green Bronze Mirror is good if you’re interested in learning a little bit about history and ancient Rome in the time of Emperor Nero. Other than that, I’d give this one a skip if that’s not your kind of book.

    The Green Bronze mirror is a reprint of a YA title that was originally printed back in 1966. This new version comes to us with illustrations By: Philip Smiley.

    The story takes place in what would be current times. Our main character – a fifteen year old girl by the name of Karen is wandering around a beach in England and comes across a Green Bronze Mirror that magically takes her back in time over 2000 years to when Nero ruled Rome. She’s found by some Roman soldiers and is mistaken to be a slave. She’s force to travel back with them to Rome and be sold to the highest bidder.

    This book was sometimes confusing as to who was speaking during many conversations and I found it hard to believe that even a 15 year old, no matter the year – 1966 or 2010 wouldn’t be freaking out by not only the HUGE difference in year, but to be forced to live as a slave and really not be worried or do much about it. It was just not something I could see any one taking as easily as Karen did. It frustrated me that she just lived this way for months before showing any sign of wanting to find a way back and finally when she did show interest in going home, the ending felt rushed.

    I think I would have enjoyed this story further if we would have been told more of the adventure our main character had while traveling back to find the mirror. The little glimpse we did get to see of this journey as Karen and her companion, a slave boy name Kleon was the most interesting parts of the story. I have to say that he – Kleon was the also a better part of this book. I wish the author would have let us see a little more into who he really was.

    The copy I have has many printing errors and I’m not sure if this is an ARC/Galley printing or if this is a completed version, however this also took away from the story. I think that might have added to the confusion as mentioned above.

    The idea for this book is a good one. Not lacking from adventure and would give younger readers a chance to use their imagination throughout the story. I think this book might be for to young of a read for me to be able to connect with any of the characters. I could see a younger audience liking this for the adventure that this story was. I would suggest this as a book for anyone around 10-14, boys or girls. It’s a read that would give any younger reader an idea of life and times in Rome some 2000+ years ago.

    As I am a big fan of time travel I was excited to read this book and even though I knew that it was written by a child I thought it was going to be an interesting story. Well the story itself of Karen finding the green bronzed mirror and all of a sudden falling into a different time period was kind of cool. That she went back to Roman times was also exciting, but I was disappointed as the story went on. The back cover says that "her struggle to return to her own time" there was very little of that in the story and her being sold as a slave was not at all depicted like it should have been. Slaves back in Roman times were not treated very well at all. Karen is bought by a family and inserted into their household to take care of the children. Her explanation of how she came to be in this era is kind of brushed over. I would think that the people that she meets and she tells the story as to how she came to be in this era, I think would have asked a lot more questions than they did. In a society were someone that was not Roman would not have been accepted as easily as Karen was, just her name alone would ring some bells. All that aside, as I was reading it I kept in the back of my mind that this was written by a child so I kept plugging along. There were a few of illustrations scattered throughout the book and they were ok.
    Now comes the part that I didn't like...the grammatical errors and the typo's. The book was full of them. Sometimes I had to insert my own words into the story so I could understand what I was reading. Again written by a child. But I think if the publisher and author are trying to sell this new addition they need to have the book edited page by page because I really think if they did this, The Green Bronze Mirror would be a very good story..
    Would I recommend this book for a preteen or younger to read? Yes but only if edited properly. I thank CS Posner for giving me the opportunity to read this book and give my honest opinion.

    A mix of fantasy, the ancient Roman world and an author’s early work finally becomes reality. Lynne Ellison started out years ago, when she was but a school girl when she began writing The Green Bronze Mirror. Since then, she has added and perfected her novel to a delightful YA book that is sure to indulge the imagination and historical fancy of anyone daring to relive Rome through the eyes of a fifteen year-old.
    Karen is a young girl transported back into time through the finding of an ancient mirror found on an island close to her home. From then on it is one experience after another to get herself back home. Karen is sold as a slave numerous times before she finally reaches her goal. Along the way, she meets Kleon, a boy a bit older than herself. Together they flee as they try to escape prosecution and death due to their religion, Christianity. At a time where Nero ruled, not much is possible for a poor slave girl. Nonetheless, Karen survives and even manages to accomplish favouritism and some sort of notoriety for her art and written knowledge.
    A delightful read that I could not help myself from comparing it to the likes of Alice in Wonderland. There is the same kind of magical flavour, except not as much fantasy. The setting in this novel is based on a true historical timetable. The setting, the customs, the period costume descriptions, the different religious factions are all detailed with great accuracy and quite impressive for a novel of this type.
    The Green Bronze Mirror is a quick and entertaining read that will surely delight. I would recommend this book to ages: 11-15.
    The Teacher in me says: For any history teachers out there: This is the book you want for your class. It’s history in story telling format. Great for English lit and history courses alike.

    Karen finds a ancient green mirror on the beach in the sand and looks into it. At the moment she does this, she knows something has changed. She has travelled into time and is now in Ancient times, exactly the Roman Empire.

    Karen’s character is sweet and isn’t afraid to do whatever is necessary to find her way home. She meets some nice friends along the way and learns the way to survive in Ancient Times. Kleon is one of those friends and there is even a little bit of romance in the story. He’s such a good friend and is willing to help Karen whenever and wherever she needs him. Ooh the ending is fun, a little surprise at the end of the story made the story complete!

    The story is really fun and you get to know some interesting facts about the Roman Empire, even Nero and slavery is included. I think this is such a short informative story for younger teens who loves history. It really is too bad that the story is not translated into Dutch, because the children in my class would love this. I highly recommend this short story to everybody who adores history!

    I have difficulty with books for children that are set in Ancient Rome because that time period was institutionally sadistic. Daily life involved slavery, torture, public executions, misogyny, brutality to animals, infanticide and blood sports. They even would crucify criminals during plays that called for a depiction of a crucifixion, because the audiences found it so entertaining! These are not things to be glorified, nor to be glossed over, when telling children about that era.

    The Green Bronze Mirror does not glorify these things, nor does it ignore them. The brutality of the era is explained in subtle ways, and the civilizing effects of Christianity are shown. I admire the author for managing to do this in a book meant for children. But because of the book's subject matter, I would suggest the reader be 12+, and preferably older than that!

    I love time travel. In this historical/fantasy fiction novel, Karen is on Holiday in England. She loves being alone and daydreaming. She creates stories to go along with everyday scenes. While out walking she comes across a green bronze mirror that transports her back in time. She finds herself a slave in a household. She sees and experiences many of the things she had previously only read about. The author Lynn Ellison was only fourteen years old when she wrote this book. Her love of that period shines through. I think this would go over well with 12 - 13 year old girls. It's a shame the author has never written anything else. It would be wonderful to see what came from the imaginative mind now that she is an adult.

    I got this book from the library book mobile when I was 13, and I loved it in a very thorough five star way. I particularly loved that Lynne Ellison wrote it was she was 14, and I was sooooo jealous, because I wanted to be a writer, and that she had published at a year older than me was inconceivable. I spent many, many years looking for it, and I was thrilled when I found it available for e-reader. As an adult, an English teacher, and a published author (at last!) ;-P I enjoyed it much less this time (3 stars) but I can still see what appealed to me at 13: time travel, love, international adventures... So- I averaged then and now, and I rate it 4.
