The Confessions of Young Nero Nero #1

Review ¹ The Confessions of Young Nero Nero #1 õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Summary ¶ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Margaret George The New York Times bestselling and legendary author of Helen of Troy and Elizabeth I now turns her gaze on Emperor Nero one of the most notorious and misunderstood figures in historyBuilt on the backs of those who fell before it Julius Caesar's imperial dynasty is only as strong as the next person who seeks to control it In the Roman Empire no one is safe from the sting of betrayal man woman or childAs a boy Nero's royal heritage becomes a threat to his very life first when the mad emperor Caligula tri. When I was young I discovered Margaret George and devoured her historical novels It has been uite a long time since I read anything by her but she has kept to a similar formula taking a historical character and then writing their life usually from the first person perspective Often the people she writes about have stories that are very well known but she incorporates such detail in the re telling that you really do have the sensation of a life lived Obviously this is fiction and putting thoughts into a real person s mind however long ago they lived is a difficult thing to do However it is obvious that the author does a huge amount of research and this is reflected in the care she takes to tell the story thoroughly However this is not a dry re telling but George really does attempt to breathe life into the characters and to make the era they lived in also feel realistic I must admit that Nero is somebody I knew a fairly small amount about especially compared to other Roman Emperor s There are all sorts of images that you think of probably for many of us it is that of Peter Ustinov playing music while Rome was in flames the image of Nero fiddling while Rome burnt is similar to that of Marie Antoinette telling people to eat cake in that it becomes so associated with them that it is hard to separate fact from fiction In this book George takes Nero back to the four year old Lucius Domitius Ahenobarbus whose mother has been exiled his father dead and who is literally when we first meet him at the mercy of his Uncle Caligula This early exposure to the whims of a Caesar give the young Nero a forbidding view of his future He is privy to early huddled secretive meetings by relatives about ridding themselves of Caligula and when this comes to pass he finds himself swooped up by his mother Agrippina and taken to Rome Claudius is now Emperor but life is still not safe and never will be Nero is fairly young when he realises that he has the blood of murderers coursing through him and that his early witness to violence and politics are deeply embedded in his life whether he likes it or not There is plenty here about Nero s love of music theatre and games which people associate with him His desire to have someone to trust that he can cling to but the knowledge that his ancestors loom over his life and give it a direction as part of the most powerful Julio Claudian dynasty This is a tale of Ancient Rome which has everything you would expect threats of death poison seduction murder power politics and the man chosen to be the heir of Claudius who needs to be ever watchful suspicious and unsure who he can trust This is an entertaining historical novel and an enjoyable addition to Margaret George s series of fictional biographies I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley for review
