I love egyptian fiction based on historical events and I really wanted to love this one but it is sooooo slow moving - I tried for over 3/4 of it but couldn't finish it because nothing would happen.
This is the kind of book that made me wish for a minimum of an hour-long afterword. I loved Alan Drury's book A God Against the Gods, which has rather a different take on a lot of this. There is apparently so much we can never really know about the way these events unfolded – that is part of their attraction. This was enjoyable, although the writing was not particularly compelling. I have enjoyed other of Ms. Moran's books perhaps more. Still, it's entertaining.
I absolutely loved this. You could really see everything happening right before your eyes. Lots of interesting details and character growth. One of my favorite downloads so far
Good story, good action, it kept my interest! Narration was good! I would recommend this book! Enjoyed the descriptions and interactions between the characters!
I absolutely loved this book I followed along with having the actual book but found myself reading ahead, so eventually just listened the author did a great job as well as the reader..in this book in particular i was unaware of how to say many of the characters names so i enjoyed hearing them...first audible and certainly not my last!!!
A peek into an ancient world with the freshness of today's events is achieved by a well modulated intonation of voices representing each character and the quality of writing that turns words into living things.
This is my favorite Michelle Moran book! Through mutne's eyes we see the kingdom in its full glory and during its demise. Lovely listen for anyone who is a historical fiction buff. Moreover, the narration is amazing to the point that you can tell who is talking, and the voices each have their own distinct personality!
Social sci-fi, vampires, and modern detective thrillers, oh my!
The cultural details were my favorite part of the book, from the make-up to the architecture, it was fascinating. I did have to take a break in the middle because I find reading about mad kings tiresome as well as the relationship between the two sisters. I quickly came back to it and was quite pleased with the ending.
