Barbara Rosenblat is a phenomenal narrator who breathes life into the characters and vividly interprets the story.
I love Ancient Egypt. The historical fiction element relating to archaeology and ancient Egypt, combined with great characters and a murder mystery......Does it get any better than this?!
Amelia Peabody Emerson. If I were born in the 1800's, I think I could have been her.
I love Elizabeth Peters. Her books are very interseting and keeps you listening for more. Even though a few parts are a little boring or drug out, the story still keeps you listening. If you have not listen to one of her book before, it maybe a little confusing when she switches a manuscript "h", it take you on a side journey but it always comes together. I enjoy them ,I hope you will too!
What a boring reading! I did purchase this book while trying to look for the new names in Historical mystery. Since the reviews were very good, I was suffering by listening first 4 chapters waiting for the mystery to start. Finally I gave up. It is may be a good women reading or romance, but definitely not a mystery or suspense. I am very sorry that I used my credits for this book.
The big bad thing about this novel is the annoying older Ramses.
I love the young, verbose, intellectual and worldly Childe Ramses; the older confused, whining, adolescent acting Ramses is just, well, annoying.
The Ramses in Love subplot takes away from the story. I felt like slapping the little brat.
Otherwise, the book is OK. Again, I'd rather read Eliz. Peters than any number of second best authors.
Or Dorothy Cannell. Or Agatha Christie, John Mortimer, Ellis Peters, Carole Nelson Douglas, Alfred Bester(sf!), Lawrence Sanders, Rowlings, Wodehouse...
That's all I can think of just now.
I've tried twice now to get into this book. I simply can't. It's too dry and boring and wanders all over. What does women's sufferage have to do with hunting for artifacs in Egypt. Don't be fooled, move away from this one.
