Though a true historian, Tom Holland also has a talent for narrative. He makes good use of this talent in bringing us a truly entertaining account of this period of Roman history. Instead of a dry account of dates and acts we get a real sense of the soap opera the that lives of the emperors actually were. Wrapped up in this history are characters to rival some of George R.R. Martin's. Highly recommended.
