Read from May 27 to June 01, 2012

The book presents the rise of Caesar up until when he leaves to take over the province of Gaul as a governor. Caesar comes across as a cold and calculated person who manipulates the people around him to advance his career and increase his 'dignitas'. As historical events, it goes over Catilina's conspiracy, Cicero's consulship and his choice to murder Roman citizens without a trial, Cicero's exile, Caesar's quaestorship, praetorship, briefly over his governing of Spain, his first consulship, and the formation of the first triumvirate. With regards to Caesar's women, they mostly appear as pawns in Caesar's scheming.
