9780099792703: Caesar

In the long, fabled history of Rome, there was never one so beloved by so many--yet so feared and despised by lesser men whose power he eclipsed--than Gaius Julius Caesar. On the field of battle, he is invincible, and those who fight at his side would gladly give their lives for his glory. But even as Caesar sweeps across Gaul--brutally subduing the united tribes who defy the Republic--his enemies at home are orchestrating his downfall and disgrace. Vindictive schemers like Cato and Bibulus would tear Rome asunder just to destroy her greatest champion, using their wiles, position and false promises to seduce others into the fold: the spineless Cicero, the avaricious Brutus...even Pompey the Great, First Man in Rome and Caesar's former ally. But ill fortune can only come to the "Good Men" who underestimate Caesar. For rome is his destiny--a destiny that will impel him triumphantly on the banks of the Rubicon...and beyond, into legend.

From AudioFile:

McCullough continues her Masters of Rome series; in this fifth installment, the leaders of Rome plot to stop Caesar, fearing that his victories in Gaul will inspire him to proclaim himself dictator. Amazingly, this abridgment doesn't seem lacking, thanks in large part to Michael York's energetic and empathic narration. Using regional British accents to differentiate a large cast of characters, he maintains the energy and spirit that take the listener through the machinations and plotting of all involved. The emotions are real and fresh--for example, Caesar's grief at the deaths of his mother and daughters and Pompey's fears and jealousies at Caesar's mounting victories. Skillful abridgment and a masterful narrator make this engrossing to the end. M.A.M. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Book Description Arrow Books Ltd 1998 Paperback, 1998. Book Condition: Good. The 'New York Times' bestselling author brilliantly reconstructs the mighty republic that once ruled the ancient world and celebrates the genius, passion, ruthlessness, and magnificence of the noblest Roman of all: Gaius Julius Caesar. The novel opens in 54 BC, with Caesar in the middle of his epochal Gallic campaigns, having just invaded Britannia. The first half of the novel deals broadly with the conclusion of his conquests in Gaul, and the second half narrates the growing sense of unease in Rome concerning Caesar's intentions, the antagonism of the conservative 'boni' faction towards him, his crossing of the Rubicon, his invasion of Italy and his victory in the Civil War. Some of the pivotal moments include Caesar's return from Britannia; his narrow escape during the battle of Gergovia; his great victory at Alesia, which involved the complete circumvallation of the citadel, the repulse of a relief force, and the acceptance of the surrender of Vercingetorix; his final destruction of the Gallic resistance at Uxellodunum; the death of Julia and Marcus Licinius Crassus; his falling out with Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus and the final collapse of the First Triumvirate system; his failed negotiations concerning his re-election as consul; the opening of the Civil War; the Battle of Dyrrhachium and the Battle of Pharsalus; the flight of Pompey to Ptolemaic Egypt and his assassination there; and the scattering of the 'boni' leadership. 845 pages.
