5.0 out of 5 stars The Saga that is Rome Continues, 1 Nov 2007
This review is from: Caesar's Women (Paperback)
Colleen McCullough was born in Australia. A neurophysicist, she established the department of neurophysiology at the Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney She then worked as a researcher and teacher at Yale Medical School for ten years. She is the author of the record-breaking international bestseller The Thorn Birds and her series of books on Rome have also been bestsellers. Colleen lives on Norfolk Island in the Pacific with her husband.

The three previous novels in Colleen McCullough's hugely successful series set either in Rome itself or dealing with the lives of its citizens, primarily Gaius Marius, Lucius Cornelius Sulla and the self-styled Pompey the Great have all been leading up to the brightest star ascending in the skies of Rome, Julius Caesar.

This is his story and the story of the Republic of Rome, where he was both adored, feared, hated and probably most of all resented. A man who was undoubtedly the greatest Roman who ever lived. A man who could truly be called great, but a man who had flaws in his make up. A man who was honest, who rewarded loyalty by giving it twice over in return, but a man who had a dreadful temper a love of women, but almost always choosing the wrong ones and although he tried to disguise it from everyone, a man who suffered from the `falling' sickness and was terrified that his enemies would find out and use it against him.

This is his story and the story of the people who fought tooth and nail to destroy him and all he stood for.
