Marcus Aurelius - A Life (Review Posted)

Just wanted to post a brief note to say that Curled Up With a Good Book has posted my review of Frank McLynn's book, Marcus Aurelius: A Life.  This is an extremely interesting but horrendously tedious biography of the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius.  Aurelius, famous for his book of thought called Meditations, was a stoic philosopher who tried very hard to rule with his stoic philosophies.  It didn't always work.

Anyway, short summary.  I'm very happy I read the book, but boy was it hard to get through. Marcus was a fascinating man, and McLynn definitely captures that.  Unfortunately, he captures it in a rather dull fashion.

Give the review a look and you'll see what I mean.
