Just like the author's previous book "Livia: Empress of Rome" the author presumes the reader is an expert on Roman history right down to the minor details which only academics may be familiar with. So the writer goes from anecdote to anecdote in no particular chronological order, which can make things confusing to a casual reader of Roman history. Somehow he even manages to make the salacious tales from Tacitus and Seutonius come across as dull and boring. This was a hard book to slog though.
