I loved this book when I was like 11, so much so that I still own it and intend to keep it forever, but did anyone ever notice just how creepy Mark Antony is?

Like, dang man, you're like almost thirty and she's literally half your age, and is going through puberty, so can you refrain from flashing her and drunk kissing her in the darkness? That's literally sexual harrassment, not romantic.

I know this is supposed to be like, pseudo-historical, but could they have made her a little bit older? Even 18 would have been better, so it isn't so pervy. Or since this is a book for children, they could have, idk not written that storyline?

Other than that, I loved this book and still read it sometimes just to feel nostalgic. ( )

Of the four "Royal Diaries" I've read, this one was by far the best. Maybe it was because Cleopatra's life as a child was so much more interesting than that of Anastasia Romanova or Marie Antoinette or Isabel of Aragon, or, since there was less known about Cleopatra's childhood, the author was able to use more imagination in making Cleopatra a personality who was capable of and did rule Egypt.

Kristina Gregory used as much actual history and events as she could, but what Cleopatra actually thought about her father, her older sister, her personal fears and ambitions are, of course, speculative. Nevertheless, it is a wild, frightening and believable story.

Some may wonder whether the events are appropriate for 8-10 year-olds for whom this series is aimed, but I feel that showing how a girl of 12 was able to maneuver and survive (at least through her adolescence) attempts on her life, her father's alcoholism, the contempt of the Romans by using her intellect is uplifting. The extra information at the endof the book and the pictures of the main characters also feeds the imagination. ( )

It started a bit slow. The daily musings of cleopatra and her siblings caught on. King ptolemy was potrayed as a wuss basically.
The writing was very mundane. I had to firce myself to read it till the end. ( )

Dedicated with much love
to my father, Hal Gregory,

gave me the courage
to peek at Plutarch and all the rest.

The Queen of Sheba so desired in her heart to have knowledge, that she rode by caravan all the way to Jerusalem to meet King Solomon, the wisest man on Earth. Queen Esther of Persia saved her Jewish people from slaughter by bravely standing before King Xerxes. Nefertiti, she, too, was brave. These queens were once as young as I am now, and they didn't have a Library or Mouseion in which to study. I am most fortunate.
