"Jackson triumphs... If I were Conn Iggulden or Simon Scarrow, I'd be rather worried by the new Scottish kid on the block" (The Scotsman)

Claudius is another very good and well written story that captivated me from the first page. It reflects some of the history that occured especially with the Emperors two week visit to Britain, where he papraded through Colchester triumphantly on an elephant.
If you are interested in this topic, I have no doubt whatsoever that you would enjoy this book, the predessor and his new book about the trials of a Roman Tribune in Britian. Excellent author and story teller that stays true to historic accuracy.
P.445 has the words "Memento mori-remember thou art mortal" whispered in the Emperor's ear during his triumph. I prefer the Quo Vardis version "Respice te, hominem te memento" ("Look behind you, remember you are only a man"). Sadly until Dr Who loans us the Tardis we shall ever know if either is correct.
Highly recommended reading.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book but it wasn't as gripping as previous novels of his, particularly his Gaius Valerius Verrens series, hence just four stars.Published on 11 Feb. 2013 by Mr Kerry Napier
I bought this as a follow on from Douglas Jackson' first book Caligula, and although I enjoyed it, I don't think that it was as gripping as Caligula and the story was weaker. Read morePublished on 31 Dec. 2012 by Julie
