    Enriched by anecdotes, gossip, and details of character and personal appearance, Lives of the Caesars by Suetonius (born c. 70 CE) is a valuable and colorful source of information about the first twelve Roman emperors, Roman imperial politics, and Roman imperial society. Part of Suetonius's Lives of Illustrious Men (of letters) also survives.   Lives of Extraordinary Women: Rulers, Rebels,(and What the Neighbors Thought) by Kathleen Krull was such an amazing book. I loved it and it is a book that I would read again. I was able to read this book in one day because it was very interesting and a book that I couldn't put it down/5.
