Amazing story, Cicero on his best. If you enjoy politics affaires and ancient history, you should read it, but before take notice there will be finally three books: 1st Imperium, 2nd Conspirata, 3rd ... not yet published, I think.
The book is written as a reflection of Cicero’s life, in the voice of Tiro his faithful servant, scribe and friend. He looks back on Cicero’s rise to prominence in Roman society through a series of tactical and very risky manoeuvres, taking on some particularly nasty, vengeful characters. At first he seems to be a champion of the underdog, friend of the people, but as time goes on you see the emergence of something else, where political ambition is everything.
Fascinating stuff, can’t wait for Lustrom
Robert Harris excels in this wonderfully researched and intelligently written book.
Characters, intrigue and political chicanery fill every 'page'.
Oliver Ford-Davies provides the oral gravitas with the addition of perfect comic timing.
Sweeping in both the subject and authorial accomplishment it's a fascinating listen .
Robert Harris has triumphed.
