I love the fact that this book tells you what other sources seem to leave out in the name of some kind of misplaced historical modesty. Jam packed with information on the making, atrocities, personage, and subsequent downfall, it makes a great companion piece to I, Claudius (which is amazing).
The timeline is a little scattered, but that’s not much of a complaint more than an observation. Where this book shines is in the gory details.
Thought it was quite insightful. Excellent narrator. Kept my attention and historically interesting compared to the book I CLAUDIUS.
An interesting story but unfortunately ruined by an unusually poor reading. There were so many mispronunciations you start listening out for these rather than following the text. The voice and tone were ok but I don't think the reader had any feel for the narrative and hadn't bothered to practice reading the book. There was also the occasional gasp of breath which should have been edited out. This is not Audible's finest and I'd suggest potential readers try an alternative version.
