Still a pleaser

I originally read this book as a teenager and oh, how I revered Cleopatra.

I found it my old physical copy recently and decided to search for it on audible. I absolutely loved listening to Josephine Bailey’s voice and found myself craving more when it ended. 3 hours slipped by in no time.

Young Cleopatra

I had to research many books to understand Cleopatra as she is a character in my next book. This book introduced me to a young Cleopatra which really helped me understand why she was the way she was. I am sending one of my characters back in time to meet Cleopatra. Thank you for helping me to understand this powerful young lady and the company she kept.

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.

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.
