Historical Fiction Candy
The intrigue, the bloodthirsty ambition, the Bacchanalian behaviour.
He had a very upper class accent that I thought leant itself well to the "autobiography" of this ancient aristocrat.
Claudius, Emperor and Idiot Savant ..
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.
