And I might even volunteer to be a moderator. After all, I have read the book before.

I didn't realize that this book was first published in 1934, so we'll probably find quite a few people that have already read it. So what did you think of it? And let us know about being the Discussion Leader...whenever you decide. ::80

I've never read it before, but I'm already devouring it. Fun book.

I know you're not much into fiction, Tara, but this book should prove to be an awesome read and more like a history book then a novel. It is historical fiction, afterall.

Post Re: Who plans to read and discuss this book?
I've just finished reading it.

I don't read a lot of historical fiction but I enjoyed reading this one. I found the coverage of the family history a little too detailed at times, and trying to follow the myriads of schemes did become a little tedious, but overall a good read, especially for someone not very familiar with Roman history.

I read the sequel Claudius the God as well and I found that it raised more interesting questions than did I, Claudius for the reason that it dealt more directly with the issues relating to how power should be used. I won't give away what happens in the sequel but the development of the sequel from the first book was nicely done; I was surprised when I realised where the sequel was going.

If you've made it through I, Claudius, I'd recommend reading the sequel as well.

No kidding. I devoured I, Claudius (but will go back and re-read it to fully digest the convoluted family trees!), and picked up the sequel the other day...

I'm just worried that I won't be able to wrest the book from my husband's hands now!

Help!
