roman ramblings

I'm currently reading Robert Graves "I, Claudius" and watching the old BBC show. Wow, are they both brilliant. And also wow, was Patric Stuart young!

Whyever did they chose to finish Rome where they did when they continued it with such material. It would have been a firework!

Has anyone here read it? I'm completely addicted at the moment. It reminds a lot of Game of Thrones and I think that Graves' Claudius ans Martin's Tyrion have a lot in common, the way they are treated as defficient by their families but come back from the woodwork maybe even because of it.
