    "Great book!"

    Even though this is a fictional diary of cleopatra, it sounds like it actually could be the real thing. The caracters and the historical value is well developed in the book. I really enjoyed it.

    "I Could See the Story in My Mind's Eye"

    The Narrator is a perfect match for this book. The tonal quality of the reading was very pleasant, and the storytelling very engaging. I could see the the characters as described by a young Cleopatra who was growing into her eventual role as Queen of Egypt. The events she witnesses shape her, perhaps playing a role in how she will rule over the people of Egypt. The details regarding the supposed personalities of her family, retinue, and political rivals felt true and convincing.

    "I was a teenage Cleopatra"

    I was not able to finish listening to this one. the narrator's voice was annoying and hard to understand. I doubt the real Cleopatra would have accomplished as much as she did if she had whined like this. She was also supposed to have had a musical voice--not like this narrator.
