This is an expectation and build up to romance novel with lots of information about Egypt and its archeological diggings. Clean with intrigue. The main characters are a bit overdone in this first book, but I have listened to others where Amelia's character is not so opinionated.
I wasn't able to relate to the characters. The dialogue sounded like a manual.
It put me in a zone. Good, realistic psychological messages and character dialogue. No major tragedy. Well written, just never drew me in to the story.
Yes. Some of her books are quite good. This wasn't bad, just okay. No big laugh, no big cry, not much mystery...I kept guessing the story plot.
The scene where the main character talks to her boyfriend about her abandonment feelings.
Reinstilled the importancy of the past not getting in the way of the future.
Not much to convince me to listen to the sequel.
Gruesome, Captivating! Heart wrenching.
Follet!s trilogy books. Many mentally twisted characters, a few truly "good" characters embedded in a very accurate, detailed description of the historical period.
Spiritual mud house at Indian compound.
In sickness and in health.
Don't listen to this series if you are prone to depression!
I can't believe someone actually thinks it's okay and funny to swear at kids. Even at our worst, we need to model our best. Go in the bathroom and scream into a towel or another bedroom and scream into your pillow. Kids have enough trouble developing good self esteem and self worth. They don't need parents slinging epithets at them. PS The poetry was quite good if you leave out the F word.
This is one of those Oprah books. You feel sad as you hear it (not only affected by the skilled narrator, but also the content), even in the good parts. I didn't like feeling like that so did not finish listening to the book.
If you want to understand verbal manipulative abuse and what results when you enable the accompanying narcissistic behavior, this novel will educate you. The first of the book gave an in depth play-by-play subduing narrative; the rest of the story made up for the needed but depressing self-preservation infomercial.
I bought this book because the website recommended it on the $5 special. The author is creative and capturing, excepting the laborious description entailed in decidely pornographic subjects. In addition, there are numerous overly descriptive beheadings and tortures. I skipped these parts because they made me sick. Actually, I am surprised there isn't some kind of "X" rating on this book.
Otherwise, I think this is a gifted author in the magical and adventure realm (like Diana Galbaldon). Too bad the author subjects the reader to unsuspected violence by venturing way outside the mainstream of societal acceptance for no apparent reason. There are other ways to make the "Dark Lord" foul without reaching into S&M.
The plot was quite decent, but I found my self laughing at the amount of description and detail for the many sex scenes
I am a big fan of Johanna Lindsey, but this book did not do "it" for me. I kept falling asleep every time I listened to it.
