Best book I'd read in years. I, Claudius is a brilliantly written piece of historical fiction from the perspective of a hapless-yet-intelligent black sheep of the Julio-Claudian house during the Augustan era of the Roman Empire who stumbles his way through to survive the reigns of Augustus, Tiberius, and Caligula only to be made emperor himself/5.

This and Claudius the God was Graves, though Goodbye To All That is wonderful too. In this book he brings the past vividly back to life. The accuracy of his view of the reigns of the early emperors may be challenged but it is his view that the world remembers/5(33).
