(Audiobook) Cleopatra may have lived over 2000 years ago, but Stacy Schiff’s biography brings the Egyptian Queen to life. I fancy myself as a history buff and this book really opened my eyes to ancient history. I generally stick to history of the past 200 years, but Schiff’s detailed research was amazing and enthralling. Cleopatra was a fascinating subject alone, but the author also gives you a biography of Mark Antoy as well. When I was finished I was completely satisfied knowing that I had read a definitive account of an incredible life.
