I enjoy history and learning about the great people that have shaped this world, and I was looking forward to reading this book. I made a serious attempt to read it, but after getting about 50 pages into the book I just gave up. While I was interested in the story there were just way too many difficult (and usually hard to pronounce) Greek and Roman names of people and places that were way too complicated to remember and keep track of. I think the author spends as much time concentrating on the names of Caesar's many friends and family and enemies and the places they inhabited as she does on the romance he initiates at the beginning of the book. I was disappointed with how difficult this book was to read.
