Book Review: The Memoirs of Cleopatra by Margaret George

The Memoirs Of CleopatraThe Memoirs Of Cleopatra by Margaret George

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bestselling novelist Margaret George brings to life the glittering kingdom of Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile, in this lush, sweeping, and richly detailed saga. Told in Cleopatra's own voice, this is a mesmerizing tale of ambition, passion, and betrayal, which begins when the twenty-year-old queen seeks out the most powerful man in the world, Julius Caesar, and does not end until, having survived the assassination of Caesar and the defeat of the second man she loves, Marc Antony, she plots her own death rather than be paraded in triumph through the streets of Rome. 
Most of all, in its richness and authenticity, it is an irresistible story that reveals why Margaret George's work has been widely acclaimed as "the best kind of historical novel, one the reader can't wait to get lost in."

One of the best historical fictions of Cleopatra that I've ever read. I was instantly in that place with her & instantly became a forever fan of Margaret George. Over the years, I have lent out about 4 copies & wound up re-purchasing this book 4 different times. It is that phenom. Even though it's a tome, it's a very quick read.
