This review is from: Augustus: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
This is a novel which works on all levels, both as an authoritative account of the life of the Emperor Augustus and his contemporaries, and as a work of literature. It is beautifully written, and the events of the period are conveyed in the form of letters written by and to the main historical personages associated with Augustus.
This book will appeal to all lovers of Roman history, but it also works on a purely human level.
