Literary Giveaway Blog Hop — Cleopatra — 60 Comments

  1. Hurray, I’m back in time to find out what you think of this book. I have a copy in both e-book and paperback and I haven’t finished either. I just can’t get into it. I’ve missed your reviews and can’t wait to see what you think of this book.

  2. I love anything about Cleopatra, so I would really like to win this.

  3. Thanks for the giveaway and for opening it to worldwide entries.

    Much appreciated.

    Yes I agree, very few of us can hear Cleopatra without thinking Liz Taylor.
    But she was just such a larger than life character that lasted so long she became a legend. Like John Wayne I think her memory will live on for a long time and I miss those larger than life actors and actresses. Wonder which of the current crop of thespians will leave such a story !

    By the way I think Michelle Moran has done the Cleopatra story quite well.
