Cleopatra: A Life

Cleopatra: A Life - Stacy Schiff This book will make you remember why you love history. Schiff adds enough interesting tidbits to make the story more interesting, but she keeps to the timeline as well so that by the end you feel like a Ptolemy expert. A fascinating and well-paced read; it won't take you too long but will keep you interested the whole way through. Schiff is definitely an expert at what she does, and it's great that she's able to write about Cleopatra in particular and set the record straight about her.
