Read full description of the books Cezar - Kralj Galije:zbudljivim pripovedanjem i podrobnošću koja ostavlja bez daha, Kolin Mekalou, spisateljica najprodavanijih knjiga, ponovo stvara moćnu Republiku koja je nekad vladala svetom i slavi genijalnost i lukavstvo, hrabrost, strast, bezobzirnost i veličanstvenost omiljenog sina Republike, najplemenitijeg od svih Rimljana.
U dugoj, legendarnoj istoriji Rima, nikoga nisu toliko obožavali kao Gaja Julija Cezara – niti je iko kao on izazivao strah i prezir kod onih čiju je moć pomračio. Na bojnom polju Cezar je nepobediv, a oni koji se bore na njegovoj strani rado će i život dati za njegovu slavu. Ali čak i dok Cezar juriša Galijom – nemilosrdno pokoravajući ujedinjena plemena koja prkose Republici – njegovi neprijatelji kod kuće smišljaju kako da ga svrgnu i obeščaste.
„... Njena verzija istorije obuhvata burno razdoblje od 54. do 48. godine p. n. e. i ne izostavlja nijednu značajnu vojnu i političku pojedinost... Mekalou, takođe, oživljava mermerom zakriljene likove Pompeja, Katona, Cicerona, Bruta, Marka Antonija i ostalih dok pokušavaju da se izbore s gotovo nepogrešivim Cezarom. A sam Cezar je... briljantan, ambiciozan, nemilosrdan i fascinantan.“
The New York Times Book Review
Read information about the authorColleen Margaretta McCullough was an Australian author known for her novels, her most well-known being The Thorn Birds and Tim.
Raised by her mother in Wellington and then Sydney, McCullough began writing stories at age 5. She flourished at Catholic schools and earned a physiology degree from the University of New South Wales in 1963. Planning become a doctor, she found that she had a violent allergy to hospital soap and turned instead to neurophysiology – the study of the nervous system's functions. She found jobs first in London and then at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.
After her beloved younger brother Carl died in 1965 at age 25 while rescuing two drowning women in the waters off Crete, a shattered McCullough quit writing. She finally returned to her craft in 1974 with Tim, a critically acclaimed novel about the romance between a female executive and a younger, mentally disabled gardener. As always, the author proved her toughest critic: "Actually," she said, "it was an icky book, saccharine sweet."
A year later, while on a paltry $10,000 annual salary as a Yale researcher, McCullough – just "Col" to her friends – began work on the sprawling The Thorn Birds, about the lives and loves of three generations of an Australian family. Many of its details were drawn from her mother's family's experience as migrant workers, and one character, Dane, was based on brother Carl.
Though some reviews were scathing, millions of readers worldwide got caught up in her tales of doomed love and other natural calamities. The paperback rights sold for an astonishing $1.9 million.
In all, McCullough wrote 11 novels.
