    "The Twelve Caesars has beautiful illustrations of some of the greatest Caesars in history! This book contains a lot of engaging information on the Roman Empire. Being that it is written by a classic historian, I got a better feel for what life was really like by reading these well-organized profiles of the leaders of the Roman Empire. This is a timeless masterpiece that brings history to life. I highly recommend this for history lovers and students of history. It is one of the best books to come from the ancient world."

    "I am no expert on Roman history, but I got interested in it after reading Colleen McCullough's novels about the politics and the behind the scenes machinations of the "show" in the Forum. Colleen's books were a good primer to The Twelve Caesars. At the very least, I was able to get used to reading Roman names. The Twelve Caesar by Seutonius is a lot drier than the fictionalized version of McCullough's Rome. But it provides very good historical biographies of the Caesar's and provides some closure to McCullough's Masters of Rome series."

    "When going back in time, it's hard to find sources that are accurate. A lot of information has been lost as time has passed. Historical fiction usually ends up being more fictional than historical. However, The Twelve Caesars has done its homework and tries to be as accurate as possible while still telling the narrative it sets out to."

    "In that poorly voiced topic "fiction is fiction ", this novel is not a thinly veiled retelling of a more or less real person. It is rather an entirely imagined character in an imaginary position to give first person points of view on events during the reign of Julius Caesar ."

    "I'm not sure this book would qualify as historical fiction at all. It labels itself as a biography."

    "Most people think there's only the one Caesar but now we know there are twelve. Plus there are other bios in there as well. Suetonius really knows his Caesars. A Sue-tably thorough book."
