Maolsheachleann O’ Ceallaigh
Currently, there is a read along of the novel to coincide with the manner in which it was initially published in monthly instalments from March 1836 until November 1837:
"Robert Harris's historical thrillers are usually great reads and his Cicero trilogy will probably be remembered in time as his masterpiece. Shortly to be adapted for the stage by the Royal Shakespeare Company and for television by the BBC, the trilogy brings to life the last years of the republic of Ancient Rome, seen through the eyes of the great orator and writer Cicero, and his loyal assistant Tiro. The trilogy shows the frailty of democratic institutions when set against ego, ambition and populism. "
