Imperium by Robert Harris
 It's about the life of Cicero and a historical era and characters I'm fond of. It's written in a literary style so fluent and interesting that you can hardly put it away. The descriptions are detailed and attractive. It's about politics, society, relations and the games between the pillars of power. But what interested most to me is how the young Cicero stepped into the politics -although he was neither a noble man nor a glorious Roman soldier- and went through all obstacles by using only words, purely counting on his oratorical power, and how he became one of the greatest. An incredible story which I find amazing and that influenced me a lot... Somehow I see myself in him, considering that I'm just at the beginning of my career :)
