This is one of my favorite so far of the Amelia Peabody series and a great listen. Barbara Rosenblat is an excellent narrator.
I love Amelia Peabody and her family - crackpots all. I have issues with every one - pieces of them I don't like. And I couldn't be friends with any of them in real life, probably, but they're brilliant in every sense of the word. And I feel this is the book that finally brings them all together as a whole.
I will not spoil any twist or any turn or any event. If you love the Emersons and their tribe, then this is the book for you.
Barbara Rosenblatt remains my favorite female reader, and she doesn't disappoint in this outing.
Once again, Elizabeth Peters has written an entertaining tale of the Emerson clan. There's not much more to say about the book - if you've enjoyed the others, you'll enjoy this one. I've listened to all of the previous novels with the same narrator, but I have to say, I think she's slipping. There were several points in the recording where, if I hadn't already read the novel, I wouldn't have known if the speaker was Amelia or Nefret. Ms Rosenblat's earlier performances were spot on, so this was disappointing. It won't stop me from listening to the next one, but I hope this issue was just an aberration and future recordings will go back to the earlier high standards.
