5.0 out of 5 stars A book to be Treasured - a Masterpiece!, 11 Jan 2003
This book is one the best books that I have read. It is actually a "ghost autobiography", of the second century Roman emperor Hadrian. The language is fluent and the descriptions of events and the life around him are both graphic and moving. If you are a philosopher and an emperor and you possess all that you wish to have, what would be your thoughts be? By answering this question this book suggests an answer to another: "What is the Meaning of Life?"
