Beautifully written with phenomenal attention to historical detail, Harris lays out, in fascinating detail, Cicero's career and the events that led to the birth of Imperial Rome.
Utterly brilliant and an absolute must read for those fascinated by Roman history.
I thought at first that I was reading about a famous historical character from ancient Rome. I soon realised that I was reading about today's events and today's politicians, and about one of the best amanuensis depictions I have ever come across.
Throughout the book there are many climax and never the writer loses strength. Impossible to put aside .
A book that tells history but also shows present time , even when the frame is Ancient Rome the political movements are present day .
Top reviews from other countries
Even a writer of quality is rarely detached from their own period and this story has many parallels with the world around us today. Old interests and new men vie for power, manipulating the populace with lies and distractions while (mostly) serving their own needs for power, greed or vanity. Its a familiar if depressing tale of a man who tries to do the right thing, but is hampered by his own human failings as often as the weight of history.
Turgid, boring, amateur writing and simply plain awful are some of the kinder epithets which could be directed at this mish-mash of approximate historical fiction.
I have read some of Mr Harris other offerings and ANY thing else must be better than this.
Please save your money and waste it elsewhere.
