    The sun rides high over the British Empire and the light still sparkles brightly in Amelia Peabody's eye as she returns for her second adventure in archaeology and romantic mystery as recounted in her lively journal, The Curse of the Pharaohs.

    I read the first Amelia Peabody mystery, but never seemed to get into the second so I decided to listen instead. I don't know if I will ever actually read the rest after listening to this narrator. She does some amazing voices and kept me extremely amused by giving such life to our heroine, Amelia. She kept the story moving along and never once was I bored!

    The last camel is dead, and Egyptologist Amelia Peabody, her dashing husband, Emerson, and precocious son, Ramses, are in dire straits on the sun-scorched desert sands. Months before, back in cool, green England, Viscount Blacktower had approached them to find his son and his son's new bride, who have been missing in war-torn Sudan for over a decade. An enigmatic message scrawled on papyrus and a cryptic map had been delivered to Blacktower, awakening his hope that the couple was still alive.

    "Not my choice for narrator"
    Overall

    I have listened to the many audiobooks in the Amelia Peabody series and was extremely dissappointed by this one. Amelia Peabody is British and Susan O'Malley did not even attempt the accents! There is no doubt that the material itself is fabulous and I enjoyed the story itself, but the narration, frankly, was very much NOT to my liking. Barbara Rosenblatt makes the material funny, Susan O'Mally made it a very dull listen. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a recording by Barbara for this one and I was forced to endure it since I had made the purchase without a preview listen. Next time I will just make the time to actually read it, if I have no choice.

    Story

    In 1803, President Thomas Jefferson selected his personal secretary, Captain Meriwether Lewis, to lead a voyage up the Missouri River, across the forbidding Rockies, and - by way of the Snake and the Columbia rivers - down to the Pacific Ocean. Lewis and his partner, Captain William Clark, endured incredible hardships and witnessed astounding sights. With great perseverance, they worked their way into an unexplored West. When they returned two years later, they had long since been given up for dead.

    Christopher says: "Great detail about this historical event..."
    "Very enlightening"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this audiobook. I knew virtually nothing about Lewis and Clark and this book was a wonderful taste of their journey. It included many passages from their jounals as well as a biography on their lives leading up to the amazing journey that would make them such important characters in our country's history. I only wish I had had a map or two in front of me while I listened. The end chapters leave you with a sense of sadness and melancholy for the fate of Lewis. Threre are certain moments when the descriptions seem to go on and on and I found my mind wandering a bit, but overall, I think it was an excellent book.
