Publisher's Summary

Here is a major new recording and the riveting account of Ancient Rome in all its madness and debauchery. The politics of empire-building and the hypocrisies, back-stabbings, and corruptions of Rome's first family come to light. First published in 1934, the book retains a marvelously modern and often comic tone, and is written in the form of Claudius' autobiography. This is gripping stuff, read by one of our finest actors, who also starred as Claudius in the classic television series.

Jacobi does a great job with the narration - brings Claudius to life. The abridged version moves through the plot efficiently and keeps the story in tact

Derek Jacobi IS Claudius

If you watched the series, Derek Jacobi plays Claudius...and he was excellent. On the audio, he brings all his vim and vigor and talent to the reading, making the story come alive.

I've read the unabridged version, which is very long, the abridged version makes the story more dreamatic without sacrificing too many details.
