Recensioner

En intressant bok om en intressant kvinna. Ibland tycker jag dock att det handlar lite väl mycket om Romarriket och Kleopatra får stå tillbaka trots att det är om henne boken handlar. Men det beror väl på Roms starka betydelse i området. Det går helt enkelt inte att utelämna Rom ur en bok med detta ämne.
