I, Claudius was written as if it were the confidential autobiography of Claudius, the fourth emperor of Rome 41-54 A.D. The main caricature Claudius tells of the intrigues of his day and age. The story starts off a bit slow but the story is laying the foundations of the future intrigues of sex, murder and betrayals.
The audio is good quality.
Good book but this is book 3, NO Dominion is book 1, Already Dead is book 2, Every Last Drop book 4, My dead Body is book 5. Staying in order helps with these books.
If you like Woody Allen you will probably LOVE this book. If you don't like Woody Allen's comedy you will not like this book. The book is well written for what it is. The narrator does a very good job with his reading of this book. If you think that Magic Kindom for Sale - Sold! By Terry Brooks is good you will like this book.
I made it halfway through this book. The narrator is good. The plot is fairly good but the hero stops and whines for prolong periods of time. To a degree this makes sense with the story but is very annoying to me. If you don't like whiny heroes don't get this book. If you enjoy Woody Allen and fantasy this might be a book for you.
The book Hedda Gabler is listed under Audible Kids. Not really a good book for kids or young teens. You may want to review the book before letting a child or teen go through it. The book has adult content mostly through implied meaning of words and double meaning of words. The book also has a suicide in it. Other then that if you like drama in a story you will more then likely this story. A good little sop opera.
The audio of this story is good quality the narrator Doug Bradley does a good job telling the story. The only problem with the story is that the “book” some times goes no rants that get a little to long. I didn’t care much for the portions of the book that ranted with graphic violence. This book is a nice adult book that I would recommend it to my friends.
Overall the quality of the story is good but the story is slow at times. The story doesn’t focus on Attila point of view as much as Romans dealing with the fallout from Attila and other barbarian’s action of that time. The plot development is good and as long as a person is not looking for a thrill ride every second I would recommend this book.
The story is a grate book if you know history though you can still enjoy this book if you don?t. This book is a classic.
The story wouldn?t be so bad if she didn?t keep repeating her themes. A good read for philosophy but you only need to read the first part and last part of the book.
