I, Claudius

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

Review:

I, CLAUDIUS and CLAUDIUS THE GOD are an imaginative and hugely readable account of the early decades of the Roman Empire ... racy, inventive, often comic (Daily Telegraph)

One of the really remarkable books of our day, a novel of learning and imagination, fortunately conceived and brilliantly executed (New York Times)

Still an acknowledged masterpiece and a model for historical fiction ... sympathetic and intensely involving: a great feat of imagination (Hilary Mantel)

Book Description:

First published in 1934, and written in the form of Claudius' autobiography, the audio is read by Derek Jacobi.
