This is one of the best of Allan Massie's books on Rome. An attempt to get inside the head of a very difficult man, faced with the almost impossible task of running an Empire he had inherited, almost against his will. The final page is a bonus that brought me up short. ( )

Engrossing and sympathetic portrait of an Emperor who has rarely been regarded sympathetically. The ending (narrated by his German freedman was also a little unexpected. ( )

Of the four novels in the author's series about Roman rulers I have read so far, this is the one that seemed to flow the best. In some respects the most interesting as Tiberius is perhaps relatively less well known than Julius Caesar, Mark Antony and Augustus, he comes across as a sympathetic man who would much rather not be supreme ruler. An engrossing read. I hope Massie continues with his series and decides to do Claudius, Robert Graves notwithstanding. ( )
