The Storm Before the Storm
- The Beginning of the End of the Roman Republic
- By: Mike Duncan
- Narrated by: Mike Duncan
- Length: 10 hrs and 13 mins
The Roman Republic was one of the most remarkable achievements in the history of civilization. After its founding in 509 BCE, the Romans refused to allow a single leader to seize control of the state and grab absolute power. The Roman commitment to cooperative government and peaceful transfers of power was unmatched in the history of the ancient world. But by the year 133 BCE, the republican system was unable to cope with the vast empire Rome now ruled.

What made the experience of listening to The Storm Before the Storm the most enjoyable?
Mike Duncan finds a way to tell this story, which has a lot of different characters and makes it easy to understand and follow.
Any additional comments?
I went straight from this book to listening to Mike Duncan's History of Rome and the story follows on seamlessly. If only all of his History of Rome could have been this detailed.
