This really is compelling reading,
By A Customer
This review is from: I, Claudius (Paperback)
I, Claudius by Robert Graves really is what they say it is, the best historical novel of our time. The brutal reality of power politics is splendidly portrayed by Graves against the rich and inspiring backdrop of ancient Rome. The story is told from the perspective of a nobly born, but disadvantaged spectator who stands by as those around him destroy each other until, inevitably, he is drawn into the role of participant in the glorious game that was Roman politics.
An excellent read, you won't be able to put it down.
