    Emerging as a market town from a cluster of hill villages in the eighth and seventh centuries B.C., Rome grew to become the ancient world's preeminent power. Everitt fashions the story of Rome's rise to glory into an erudite book filled with lasting lessons for our time. He chronicles the clash between patricians and plebeians that defined the politics of the Republic. He shows how Rome's shrewd strategy of offering citizenship to her defeated subjects was instrumental in expanding the reach of her burgeoning empire.

    Mike From Mesa says: "Rome from the fall of Troy through Julius Caesar"
    "Fascinating tale of the sad decay of the Republic"

    Did Clive Chafer do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    This perhaps could have been done a little more effectively, It may just have been a bit hard for me because they are Latin names that becuase it is an audiobook, you never see written out.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found they book upsetting. Rome goes from a virtuous outpost city to a domineering power by the Third Punic War, then constitutional order slips away culminating in Caesar and the loss of the Republic.


    Any additional comments?

    At first I was very turned off by the Narrator but was fine after getting used to his voice.
