With incomparable storytelling skill, New York Times bestselling author Colleen McCullough brings Rome alive in all her majesty—and illuminates the world of those favored by the gods at birth.
In a time of cataclysmic upheaval, a bold new generation of Romans vied for greatness amid the disintegrating remnants of their beloved Republic. They were the chosen...and the cursed—blessed with wealth and privilege yet burdened by the dictates of destiny in a savage struggle for power that would leave countless numbers crushed and destroyed. But there was one who would tower above them all—a brilliant and beautiful boy whose ambition was unparalleled, whose love was legend, and whose glory was Rome's: a boy they would one day call "Caesar."

Colleen McCullough is the author of The Thorn Birds, Tim, An Indecent Obsession, A Creed for the Third Millennium, The Ladies of Missalonghi, The First Man in Rome, The Grass Crown, Fortune's Favorites, Caesar's Women, Caesar, and other novels. She lives with her husband on Norfolk Island in the South Pacific.From AudioFile:
If you liked watching I, Claudius, try listening to Fortune's Favorites. McCullough's latest saga is the strongest of the stories in her trilogy of ancient Roman days. In it Pompey and Sulla vie for power against the young upstart, Julius Caesar, while Spartacus agitates the slaves. English actor Michael York reads like the pro he is with a rich, deep intonation. The story is unadorned and single-voiced. Uneven recording levels are a slight problem; otherwise, the program is flawless. The story is exciting as long as you can keep the characters straight.
