Even though the audio book follows what I have seen in the movie, there are other aspects of her life that are brought into focus with reference to her relationships that are not. I found what I have heard so far to be interesting and informative. Having heard parts 1,2&3, I am looking forward to the upcoming chapters.
I am curious as to how she starts her relationship with Mark Anthony since she has only touched on even recognizing him in the first three parts.
If you don't know anything about Cleopatra and her time, this is interesting from a mostly historical perspective. However, if you are looking for an engaging, interesting read, this doesn't fit the bill. It is dry, mostly told as a story rather than an experience, with most of the action taking place in third person. Most of the interesting stuff happens off stage, if you will, and she makes mention of it in her memoir. Also, Cleopatra is portrayed here as a not-so-interesting character, but with a lot of insight and introspective evaluation. Admittedly, this book didn't hold my attention past the first download (there are 7 total), so maybe if I had stuck it out it would have gotten more engaging. However, I am a busy person and have vowed not to waste my precious time on things that are less than great as this is.
