To this day, Cleopatra proves to be one of the most important and controversial figures in ancient history. Married to both of her brothers, the first of which she defeated in a civil war before ordering the second's murder, Cleopatra would also have affairs with Julius Caesar and Mark Antony and nearly tear the Roman Empire in two. However, author Stacy Schiff believes history has given Cleopatra a bad rap and sets out to tell Egyptian queen's true story.

The reader does a very good job keeping the listener engaged. I enjoy the author's writing style; a captivating non-fiction.

The author provides compelling insights and contexts that expand our understanding of the Egyptian Queen in an engaging way. Clearly, Cleopatra led an epic life. Obviously, Cleopatra was extremely shrewd. She used her affairs with Julius Cesar and Mark Antony to further her own political agenda and power. Although the book was dry in a few spots, I found myself picking it up at every opportunity. Well written, interesting and persuasive, I would highly recommend this book to anyone.This book would also make an excellent gift.

I don't think this book translates well to the audio format. I found it hard to follow
