it was amazing
Read from November 10 to December 01, 2011

Another excellent book in McCullough's Masters of Rome series for which she was awarded a doctorate--and rightly so! Well, if it wasn't an asp, could it have been a cobra? Cleopatra certainly didn't drink poison according to McCullough. Why did Julius Caesar's 15-year-old son by Cleopatra have to die? Why were Antony's children by Cleopatra allowed to live? What was Octavian's part in all of this? Caesar Romulus or Caesar Augustus? Which name was more appropriate and why? McCullough gives the reader her slant on these issues and writes convincingly. I wish there were more books in this series.
