The “Caesar and Cleopatra” story is one of the most famous love stories in history. Its reputation has spread in the ancient world, and it has been heard so far. That love that changed the history of both Rome and Egypt. when Julius Caesar saw her,he transformed from the Roman leader to the blind lover, Cleopatra threw her nets around him, and showed him from the magic of the East what he did not see throughout his life, and from her beauty what made him a prisoner; he forgot Rome and its wars, and he flipped in a life of bliss, Pleasures a legendary journey across the Nile. Cleopatra saw an opportunity before her to realize with love what the most powerful military and politicians had failed. However, things did not go as they wanted. The glory of Rome is invincible to be defeated by a woman. The members of the “Senate Council” revolted,They killed Caesar for the Roman empire to live, but Cleopatra did not despair and her persistent efforts continued.

"This is not a book that should be picked up."

Reviewer: .


This is a brief introduction to the story of Cleopatra's covering her history from her initial gathering of her armies to her meeting with Julius Caesar.

I do enjoy reading about Ancient Roma and Cleopatra is a fascinating character in history and so I picked it up to see what it could offer. Unfortunately, I came to realise quickly that this version offers very little to recommend it. The retelling of the brief part of her history is brief and confused, covering nothing in depth and skipping to the more obvious events, while leaving aside the rest. The book ends abruptly in mid-scene, no doubt hoping that someone might look at getting the next one for some reason. The writing is riddled with spelling errors and bad formatting making it difficult to read, although given it's length, it does not take long to understand what is meant.

Aside from that, it has a couple of nice pictures of someone trying to look like Cleopatra, although once again, the accuracy in such pictures is suspect.


This is not a book that should be picked up, but gently placed to one side and one of the myriad of better written, more understandable and deeper books about Cleopatra should be chosen instead. It is a shame that it does not try to add anything new to the history and in turn detracts from what was an intriguing time in history.
