Well, I happen to be in the middle of Forgotten History
, and a biography of Cleopatra (I can't read just one book at a time).
I'm really enjoying Forgotten History
. It's well-written, of course, with a good mix of familiar and (to me) unfamiliar characters. I like that all the viewpoint characters have understandable agendas, even if they're at odds sometimes. There's conflict and tension without a stereotypical, mustache-twirling villain. I can see how each character would take the stances they do, and how each reasonable stance would be at odds with other characters.
