    "A decent historical biography that went into details about the period and the major figures in it. That said, it was a very slow read for me that was hard to get through. I feel like this book needed a better editor."

    "I've been reading this book the past week and so far I'm pretty happy with it. If you enjoy epics set in the ancient Roman empire this is a book you simply must check out. The story line is very engaging and I should be done reading by the end of the day."

    "It needs to be said that this is a book of fiction, even if it does draw on some real inspiration. But if you're looking for true historical accounts of Cleopatra and ancient Egypt then this isn't for you. As a fiction book it's also not good. I thought it was silly and melodramatic and sort of juvenile. There are plenty of better places to learn about, or just enjoy, Cleopatra."

    "This book is great, it dives into the life of Cleopatra, however it isn't a biography. It has more of a story-telling feel to it."

    "Antony and Cleopatra is fictional history as only Shakespeare could write it. It's a love story, a power story, a story of cunning and murder that we know by heart. It's a classic that will endure forever."
