Read in the style of a secret diary, this famous sequel to I, Claudius gives a wry and human view of the Roman world, bringing to life some of the most scandalous and violent times in history.

Claudius has survived the murderous intrigues of his predecessors to become, reluctantly, Emperor of Rome. He recounts his surprisingly successful rule; how he cultivates the loyalty of the army to repair the damage caused by his nephew Caligula; his friendship with the Jewish King Herod Agrippa; and his invasion of Britain.

Yet beneath the surface, Claudius' good fortune is under threat. With the growing paranoia of absolute power, and his young wife Messalina causing trouble, how long can Claudius survive? Download and start listening now!

    " I liked the book overall, but the ending was so depressing... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Megan | 3/4/2011

    " The books, like the miniseries, are less interesting without Livia around, and the whole thing with Messalina was just painfully drawn out; loved the invasion of Britain, though, and the primary texts at the end. "

    " Second volume of the Graves classic. See I,Claudius for review. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Scurra | 9/22/2010

    " Not quite as much fun as the first, but perhaps more intense. The first-person narrative manages to keep the suspense level high, and yet manages to tell plenty of other stories without them feeling artificial (not too much overt plot-exposition here.) "
