This review is from: The Twelve Caesars (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
Okay I probably looked a bit odd on the beach reading this amidst a sea of `sleb' biographies, but it turned out to be a real pleasure and nowhere near as tricky as I had imagined. It was both eye opening and shocking in its account of vile brutality, sadism and insanity, but you cannot call yourself even an amateur historian without a passing acquaintance with Seutonius. It's one of the easiest classics you will come across and worth the time.
