This historic account of the life of Cleopatra brings together the politics, culture and passion of an ancient era that links Greek, Roman and Egyptian history. Nelson Runger provides a clear, straightforward narration, which chronicles complicated and chaotic annals from the past. His appealing voice imparts a perceptible portrayal of Cleopatra herself. Occasionally, this unabridged recounting becomes prolonged and tedious, but Runger's adept oration keeps the listener pursuing the facts to the concluding scene--Cleopatra's death and the dispersal of her family and dominion.
