    Story
    (382)

    Her palace shimmered with onyx, garnets, and gold, but was richer still in political and sexual intrigue. Above all else, Cleopatra was a shrewd strategist and an ingenious negotiator. Though her life spanned fewer than 40 years, it reshaped the contours of the ancient world. Cleopatra appears to have had sex with only two men. They happen, however, to have been Julius Caesar and Mark Antony.

    Shaun says: "A pretty good listen."
    "Very captivating."

    Story
    Where does Cleopatra rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is great because it is informative yet novel-like.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story is mostly informative. It is mostly a defense for Cleopatra, but it tries to summarize everyone's point of view about her (including negative views). The author is mostly unbiased about Antony, Cleopatra and Caesar. She may be biased against Octavian, but she talks little about him.


    What about Robin Miles’s performance did you like?

    Enjoyable


    Was there a moment in the book that particular moved you?

    Yes, of course. The Battle of Actium, the tale of Antony fishing and the final moments of Antony and Cleopatra.
