Fascinating concept -- dialogue mainly between Julius Caesar and Brutus, exploring their relationship and thoughts. Act 1 is set on the evening of the fatal Ides of March -- hence the title. Act 2 is set before the battle of Philippi, where Caesar's ghost and Brutus dialogue. I hope I get to see this play performed someday.

This was such a disappointment considering how much I loved his Nellie Bly book. It feels like the author tried too hard, and as much as I love Latin/Roman historicals, Blixit should have let "sleeping dogs lie"

A interesting and enjoyable quick read. The author understanding of the life of Julius Caesar came through the narrative, as well as the Shakespearean aspects. Having dialogue rather than transitional writing, gave a great point of difference from other books. Even if there was some punctuation issues at times.

A well thought out story.

This two-act play inspired by Shakespeare's Julius Caesar and the Roman novels of Colleen McCullough provides insight into the relationship between Caesar and Brutus. The first act takes place at a dinner party given by Lepidus on the night before Caesar's assassination. Brutus has not yet made his decision about whether or not to join in Cassius' conspiracy against Caesar, and much of the act consists of a conversation between Caesar and Brutus about, among other topics, the nature of power. ...more

I enjoyed this very, very much, but have to admit that if I had not already read Colleen McCullough's "Rome" series (twice, by the way) I might not have really understood the back history to much of this book's very clever dialog.
