An excellent novel that really lets the reader see how the world's first Republic began its demise. It is part of a trilogy on the Roman politician and orator, Cicero who lived through those times.
The narrator is excellent but on the evaluation web page it has a different narrator's name. I believe his name is Simon Jones as it appears on the recording's "cover."
I found this book to be very entertaining. The story lent itself very well to an audiobook and the reader was excellent. If you enjoy stories about Roman times this is a definite must listen.
Great historical novel of Ancient Rome. You have a real sense of the power and struggles of this period of time. Really enjoyed the novel!
Good historical fiction is hard to find and this is one of the best. An excellent story that gives you a sense as to the attitudes and culture of Ancient Rome.
