  Caesar by Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.

Review by: Daniel K.
California, Grade 7

Caesar, a book written by Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., is a bioghraphy. In this book, the author depicts a, at first, a young and ambitious man hungry for power. As the story progresses, Caesar finds many stuggles along the way for power. He then becomes a commander and goes on conquests, conquering tribes of barbarians and foes. Just when he was on the verge of great power and leadership, his own allies and friends betray him in fear of his power. Now he must do one last desperate attempt before his life falls into pieces, to gather his troops and take over Rome. How will he accomplish this great task? How will it end? Find out when you read Caesar.

Personally, I think that this book is not for everybody. I find this book interesting because I want to learn about the past, about great civilizations and great leaders. This book was mostly nicely written, full of facts and information. Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. was a historian and social critic who explored American liberalism.
