Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Colleen McCullough re-creates an extraordinary epoch before the mighty Republic belonged to Julius Caesar when Rome's noblewomen were his greatest conquest.

His victories were legend in battle and bedchamber alike. Love was a political weapon he wielded cunningly and ruthlessly in his private war against enemies in the forum. Genius, general, patrician, Gaius Julius Caesar was history. His wives bought him influence. He sacrificed his beloved daughter on the altar of ambition. He burned for the cold-hearted mistress he could never dare trust. Caesar's women all knew and feared his power. He adored them, used them, destroyed them on his irresistible rise to prominence. And one of them would seal his fate.

    "Wish there was more."

    I loved the story. The only fault, in my opinion, was that it was abridged. I would have liked to have spent more time with the characters and their machinations. Michael York was great as the narrator. I'm definitely looking for more that he has done.

    Story
    "A little embarassing..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    As it is part of a series and tells a complex and engaging story it can't be left out. I found some of the scenes of Caesar's prowess with women unnecessary. I listen to it out loud, in the kitchen while cooking and there were times I actually wanted to lower the volume.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I don't need to be titillated by a book on ancient Rome so I would take that down a notch or two.


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

    He gives them individual voices and does it well.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one book I didn't mind being abridged. If they left in all the sex scenes, it is possible, however, that the abridgement threw off the balance.
