For those interested in a more readable and "popular" telling of the last days of the Roman Republic, Jeff Holland's Rubicon (or, since we're talking about Rome here, Rvbicon) fits the bill pretty well. He covers all the major personalities in a very informal, personal manner that is sure to appeal to more modern readers.

There are better works out there, but for an introductory narrative that reads like a novel at times, you could do worse.
