... I’ve really taken to the concept of fictional works based on actual events throughout history and with writers such as Conn Iggulden, Bernard Cornwell and Robert Harris it is a genre packed full of talented writers, which resulted in me picking up Robert Harris’s Imperium.

Cicero, The Greatest Orator Of All Time

AdvantagesCreates an amazing backdrop and gives the reader a great descrition of Rome

DisadvantagesThe characters never really engage, lacks any real spark to hook you

"...I was quite disappointed that Imperium didn’t follow suit. Of course the subject of this work did dictate the events that had to be included and that will in part take away from his ability to write a free flowing book as felt there were certain topics within the book that really seemed to get bogged down and slow the pace far too much. Even his characters felt a little stilted and disjointed. His normal ability to make characters instantly likeable ..." Read review

Imperium - Robert Harris - Well worth reading

AdvantagesEntertaining, intriguing story, warm & funny in places.

DisadvantagesSome Harris fans may feel that Imperium is not as fast paced as Fatherland or Archangel.

"If you are new to Harris or an exisitng fan I don't believe that you will be disappointed by Imperium. I rated this book 4 out of 5 which maybe mean but I did enjoy Fatherland & Archangel more. This is the story of Marcus Tullius Cicero as narrated by his secretary and loyal servant Tiro. Tiro charts Cicero's rise up Rome's political ladder from 79BC to 64BC, recounting his trials & tribulations in a riveting and in places touching manner. ..." Read review

Product Information for "Imperium - Robert Harris" »

Manufacturer's product description

When Tiro, the confidential secretary of a Roman senator, opens the door to a terrified stranger on a cold November morning, he sets in motion a chain of events which will eventually propel his master into one of the most famous courtroom dramas in history. The stranger is a Sicilian, a victim of the island?s corrupt Roman governor, Verres. The senator is Cicero, a brilliant young lawyer and spellbinding orator, determined to attain imperium ? supreme power in the state. This is the starting-point of Robert Harris?s most accomplished novel to date. Compellingly written in Tiro?s voice, it takes us inside the violent, treacherous world of Roman politics, to describe how one man ? clever, compassionate, devious, vulnerable ? fought to reach the top. ?Sometimes it is foolish to articulate an ambition too early ? exposing it prematurely to the laughter and scepticism of the world can destroy it before it is even properly born. But sometimes the opposite occurs, and the very act of mentioning a thing makes it suddenly seem possible, even plausible. That was how it was that night. When Cicero pronounced the word ?consul? he planted it in the ground like a standard for us all to admire. And for a moment we glimpsed the brilliant, starry future through his eyes, and saw that he was right: that if he took down Verres, he had a chance; that he might ? just ? with luck ? go all the way to the summit?? From the PublisherThe first book in a major new trilogy set in the Ancient Roman Empire by the number one bestselling author of Fatherland, Enigma, Archangel and Pompeii See all Product Description
