A LOT DISAPPOINTING

I usually like Conn Iggulden's writing: his first novels were excellent and the Wars of the Roses books were very entertaining. Unfortunately, I came to this Caesar series after I had read Colleen McCullough's awesome Masters of Rome series, and the historical inaccuracies and outright plot-device inventions totally spoiled the listening experience. Colleen gives all her characters depth and credibility, apparently by extensively exploring their historical backgrounds and documented actions to extract an author's sense of motivation and complexity for her characters. Conn on the other hand has paper-mache characters who have little depth at all: Caesar, Brutus, Pompey, Cleopatra etc - these are non-fictional people whose names and reputations have survived for more than 20 centuries but in this reworking of a series of well documented events they resemble secondary characters in a TV soap opera and therefore would, in one's memory, hardly survive the next commercial break.

On the other hand if you know nothing or little of the period and have no urge to find out more than the bare dramatic details then you wont be disappointed.

Good story, fair story teller

Caesar's story is compelling. The narrator is a little stiff, the pronunciation of names sounds contrived.

Prepare to cry.

Stephen King? Try Conn King. This guy takes history to new levels of exitment.
You cannot finish this story without shedding tears.

Very historically accurate

It's just like you were there. Everything is very vividly explained and you'll enjoy every minute of it.

~ I've listened to over 60 Audiobooks and this one is one of my favorites.

Deeply satisfying

A satisfying end to a marvelous series. While one knows, of course, how Caesar meets his end, the story as told here was so believable and compelling it doesn't disappoint.

Emperor Series

Easy and exciting listening. Five years ago I read the series and now find myself listening to the story with the same level of interest. The reader's outstanding performance adds an additional dimension to the overall experience.
