If you liked watching I, Claudius, try listening to Fortune's Favorites. McCullough's latest saga is the strongest of the stories in her trilogy of ancient Roman days. In it Pompey and Sulla vie for power against the young upstart, Julius Caesar, while Spartacus agitates the slaves. English actor Michael York reads like the pro he is with a rich, deep intonation. The story is unadorned and single-voiced. Uneven recording levels are a slight problem; otherwise, the program is flawless. The story is exciting as long as you can keep the characters straight.
