With inviting and rich language of this historical title I found very little information was devoted to actual story of Cleopatra.
Facts, events and history during Cleopatra’s life time with marginal references to her actions – yes. Story devoted exclusively to her life and actions – definitely no.
To summarize my opinion of this book: it is very engaging, well written and referenced narrative. Hence, I would highly recommend it as a book for history admirers. Yet, if you are looking into Queen of Egypt particulars (which was main reason for my immersing into this reading), it is rather disappointing, because reference to her are rare and, often, secondary to the life and actions of other figures during her rule.
