Admittedly I am a history freak, and probably only a history freak would stick with a 1.000 page book that is so heavy that it is hard to read. Having said that, this is absolutely a great book and I couldn't put it down. Margaret George brings Julius Caesar, Mark Antony and Octavian to life. This book has been meticulously researched and includes the works of her Egyptian doctor; the observations of her personal servants as well as Roman accounts of this saga. The characters seem fresh and real. A sensual tale of ambition, love, and power. It will take you three weeks to read this, but I thought it was wonderful.

If you like big sprawling novels this one doesn't miss a beat. A history of Cleo from her point of view. George is an amazing writer.

As always, Margaret George envelopes the reader in sounds, smells, and sights of the world she describes. I learned a lot from this book and enjoyed every word!

One of the best books I have ever read! Yes it is a long book...almost 1000 pages...but every page is worth it! I didn't really know a lot about Cleopatra before I read this book (only what I learned in high school history) but now I'm hooked.
