The Whaleoil Book Club is a compilation of recommended books from readers

This holiday season we are going to review approximately one book per day so that it gives people a chance to do their own research on the books and authors by using the links provided and not miss out by being bombarded by a whole lot at once.

The purpose is to share with others sources of information and/or entertainment to aid with relaxing as people take some time off work.

Each post is set out with the name of who submitted it, the name of the book and author and a short review in the form of a comment from whoever submitted it.

Todays review came from?Blockhead

Cicero trilogy – Imperium, Lustrum (Conspirata) and Dictator.

By Robert Harris.

Blockhead said; “They cover the life of Cicero as told by his secretary Tiro. They give a good look into the life of Rome and the start of its decline with Julius Cesar coming to power. Cicero was the ultimate politician. Many of his thoughts/strategies seem to pop up on this blog from time to time. They are a good read for the political tragics which inhabit this part of the blogosphere.”

Amazon said: “Robert Harris yet again proves himself a master of historical fiction as he takes the reader to the heart of republican Rome with a novel that is at once brilliantly researched and utterly gripping.”
