    In the continuation of his fictional autobiography begun in I, Claudius, Robert Graves tells the dramatic story of Claudius' thirteen-year reign as Emperor of Rome. A must listen before running out to see the new film Gladiator!

    Michael says: "Excellent Historical Novel"
    "Great Follow-Up to I, Claudius"

    Story
    If you could sum up Claudius the God in three words, what would they be?

    Historical Fiction Candy


    What did you like best about this story?

    The intrigue, the bloodthirsty ambition, the Bacchanalian behaviour.


    What does Frederick Davidson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He had a very upper class accent that I thought leant itself well to the "autobiography" of this ancient aristocrat.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Claudius, Emperor and Idiot Savant ..


    Any additional comments?

    Perfect for those Ancient Rome historical fiction nuts who have already enjoyed " I, Claudius " and for those who wish to enjoy this book as a stand-alone. Claudius was such an interesting character in history. Was he really as doltish and simple as everyone thought? Was he incredibly intelligent but socially inept? You decide. I thoroughly enjoyed the intrigue, the illicit liaisons, deception, ambition, betrayal, lust, greed and all those other tasty topics that are part and parcel to tales of Ancient Roman politics.
