So, I've read this book several times before, and it was always one of my least favorites of the early Peabody books for some reason. But listening to it on audiobook sort of made it all fresh and new, and I enjoyed it a lot more than I remember ever enjoying my crumpled old paperback, even though some of the voices sort of annoyed me. I forgot how many recurring characters are introduced in this book--Cyrus Vandergelt, and Kevin O'Connell, and Ramses, and Karl Von Bork, and, of course, the cat Bastet. And I forgot about the Emersons' musings about Tutankhamen's tomb at the end of the book--ho ho! I finished the whole thing in two days and definitely plan on revisiting the rest in audiobook form as well. Yay!
This is one of my favorite books so far.
The villian wasn't revealed until the very end, I hate to know who done it after the first few chapters.
I loved her interpretation of the relationship between the Emersons.
Yes, I listened to this book every chance I got.
Very compelling chemistry between Emerson and his son! Love that Ramses!
There is no other.
I love Amelia, but Ramses has my favorite vote.
Ramses thunderous meeting of his parents at Chalfont!
This is my favorite series.
I enjoyed book 1 so much I decided to listen to book 2, and I'm now ready for book 3! I enjoy Perter's dynamic characters and descriptive prose! I recommend starting at the beginning of the series. Great fun!
Curse of the Pharaohs is one of my favorite Amelia Peabody books. I have listened to this story many times and it just never gets old. Barbara Rosenblat is amazingly talented.
She's not to everyone's taste, but Amelia Peabody is a delight to many; and these performances bring her to life. The narrator captures her perfectly, flaws and all, and delivers on the author's wry humor.
Variety...the spice of life! I read a variety of genres. From historical fiction, to murder mystery, to vampires and on to teen fiction.
Boy did I get confused by the title here. I thought this would be about digging up mummies, Egyptian artifacts and adventure. BOY WAS I WRONG. I bought it so I forced myself to listen to the whole thing...........a time frame I'll never get back in my life. It was such a bad story. What was this author thinking in writing this?????????????????????????????????????????
