Read & Download Imperium 104 Nt of Robert Harris's most accomplished novel to date Compellingly written in Tiro's voice it takes us inside the violent treacherous world of Roman politics to describe how one man clever compassionate devious vulnerable fought to reach the t. Robert Harris is one of my favorite authors and ancient Rome is one of my top genres Earlier this year I read I Claudius and loved it and decided to read Book 1 on Harris s trilogy on the life of Cicero I love this book By the way did you know that Cicero means chick peas Lots of good stuff in here about the early career of Cicero up to his election of Counsel of Rome The book is divided into 2 parts with the first part paying attention to his early trials and ending with his election as Aedile of Rome with the second part detailing his rise to Consul Now this is historical fiction at its finest as the book is allegedly derived from the scrolls of Cicero s personal secretary Tiro who wrote a history of Cicero While those scrolls no longer exist they are referenced by Plutarch and others and so this is as close as we will get to actual historical detail Well written Tiro paints the picture that Cicero was the master of politics and if what is in this book is correct then Machiavelli had nothing on Cicero Wonderfully written with well portrayed characters this is a great novel that one should consider if you have any interest at all in the machinations of ancient Rome and the art of politics Cannot wait to read the next two books in the trilogy

Read & Download Imperium 104 In historyThe stranger is a Sicilian a victim of the island's corrupt Roman governor Verres The senator is Cicero a brilliant young lawyer and spellbinding orator determined to attain imperium supreme power in the stateThis is the starting poi. I know this sounds weird but I love Cicero I love his elouent and passionate writing his love of books and his humanism There was no way I would not want to read some historical fiction about him especially when I saw that Harris wrote his trilogy on Cicero from the point of view of Tiro Cicero s personal secretary wasn t just a scribe he invented the system we now think of as shorthand and kept such a meticulous record of his master s life that we owe most of what we know about Cicero to him And yes what I do for a living predisposes me to love long suffering assistants But let s face it most great men and women would be lost without the person who keeps their notes and timetables in orderThe first arc of Cicero s story as told by Harris is about the famous corruption case of Verres and the thorny process of election that brought him to the Senate as well as the coming together of the First Triumvirate As his private secretary Tiro went everywhere with Cicero and tells the story of his master s investigation in Sicily complicated political games and agile legal work in great detail Even if there isn t much room in this kind of narrative for atmosphere Harris managed to make what can sound a bit dull preparing a corruption trial and campaigning for the senate elections pretty riveting even if I already knew how the story unfoldedThe writing is good but not lyrical after reading John Williams excellent Augustus it s difficult not to compare the style Unlike Williams Harris did not try to emulate the classical writing style with all of its panache and vitriol and I admit that I missed it Having read some of Cicero s writing I was hoping his elouence to shine a bit brighter on the page That said I find the story interesting enough to be on the look out for the seuelsThis is the kind of book that will appeal to fans of Roman history but people who are unfamiliar with the historical characters might struggle a bit with all the Latin names not to mention the ever fickle alliances that causes them to switch allegiances constantly 3 and a half stars
