  • Great read

    So many parallels can be drawn with modern times. I enjoyed the authors portrayal of Ciceros humanity.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A must read for any Classics (Civilisation) fans

    I would like to start this review by stating that I haven't read this book RECENTLY. However, it is a book I often recommend to people if they are interested in ancient Rome or are studying Classics. Harris does a fantastic job of dragging the reader in to the corruption and lives of ancient Rome, and creating a story that sticks with you. A memorable read I definitely recommend.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Un thriller à Rome.

    Une facon tres efficace de raconter cette periode de la vie de Ciceron qui va de - 73 a - 63. De l'affaire Verres à son élection au consulat. Robert Harris sait nous tenir en haleine et sait nous faire aimer ses personnages. Un très bon livre malgré quelques petits anachronismes.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Herkenbaar en boeiend, leest vlot

    Cicero begint aan zijn eenjarige termijn als consul. Populisten onder leiding van Cesar, met rijke donoren op de achtergrond, proberen zijn macht te ondermijnen. Cicero' slaaf en secretaris beschrijft vijf jaar van zijn leven, terwijl de Romeinse Republiek langzaam een dictatuur wordt. De wil van het volk wordt gebruikt om wetten aan te nemen om de macht van de senaat te breken. Rijke senatoren verdedigen de belangen van elite en doen verwoede pogingen de plebejers en proletariaat onder controle te houden. Het komt is herkenbaar, en Robbert Harris lijkt naast de klassieken ook door actualiteit geïnspireerd te zijn.

    Thanks for your feedback!
