"Unputdownable . . . these histories from 2,000 years ago are riveting in their insight, black humor, and sheer readability.” —Daily Mail on The Twelve Caesars
“An erudite, nuanced, and engrossing portrait of a turbulent era and of an empress demonized for refusing to be invisible.” —Publishers Weekly on Livia, Empress of Rome
“Fascinating.” —Vogue on The Last Princess

This popular historical book at first glance held the promise of a well documented narrative on the life and times of Rome's 12 Ceasars. However, the narrative itself was written in a strianed, cumbersome and almost disconnected manner that undermined the fluidity and cohesiveness of the entire book. In this respect the book was a disappointment.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
