really liked it
bookshelves: junk-food-lit
Read in August, 2009

Re-read after a lapse of some years, I love McCullough's Roman fiction, and this book tells one of the most famous stories of all - the fall of Caesar and the rise of Octavian/Augustus. Unfortunately, this book suffers a bit from trying to cram the whole story into one book . . . there is a big lag in the action from the aftermath of Caesar's assassination to the Battle of Philippi, in my opinion.
