Even though this is a fictional diary of cleopatra, it sounds like it actually could be the real thing. The caracters and the historical value is well developed in the book. I really enjoyed it.
This is an amazing book. If you have watched the movie(which was also awesome!) you'll find the book a little different. Of course it's impossible to fit a 47 hour long book into a 2.5 hour movie. The book is 47 hours long and has 119 chapters. So I recommend you listening to this book as if you're watching a tv series otherwise it may take over your life - so expect to listen to it over a period of time. The narrator is as good as the story itself. This will be one of the best books you'll have listened to. Download it and enjoy! :)
The book was interesting. It opens your eyes to opportunities in life that's lost just because you're too stupid (or proud) to take advantage of. I have applied some of its principles and am enjoying benefits from it. Not an amazing book, but definitely something to consider.
I think this book was way too long for the message it presents. A lot of it is just commom sense. I got one good point from it which is this: "if it takes you 2 minutes to accomplish or less, do it now!".
This is just an absolutely amazing book! The story and the narrator were excellent. I must say that I was quite shocked to find out that in ancient Egypt they married girls who were 12 years old. Also, I was a little disturbed by the reference of masters having slave boys which nowadays is definitely child molestation. I guess hitorically speaking, that's what life was like back then. I must say that the narrator was fantastic. Just to give you an idea, when Taita was telling about the day he was made an eunuch, the narrator told it so well that as I was driving home from work, I literally almost fainted - I had to pull over and recompose myself. I guess it was so real that it felt like I was there watching the castration being done. The story itself was amazing. This is another must listen.
This was an excellent book. I'm definitely going to get volume 2 for I'm curious to see how the story unveils. I wonder if Sinue is ever going to see Nepha Nepha again. I'm also going to rent the movie and watch it as there is an old Hollywood version of "the Egiptian". If you like anything Egiptian you must listen to this book. Really, it was just awesome!
This book is a reality check for all the lazy and irresponsible people out there. People have the habit of saying, "I need to MAKE more money," and complain. What they do need is "to EARN more money"! So use your brain and you can be a winner. Unfortunately in life there are "winners" and "loosers" and this book may not be the right choice for "lazy people" because it will hurt their feelings. But if you have a winning attitude who's fallen behind a little in managing your money, this is definetely the right book for you.
No wonder this is an American Classic. It is one of the best books ever in my opinion. It aroused in me the interest to find out about my ancerstors. Listen to this one, you won't regret it.
This is a great book because it gets right to the point in addressing signals behind lies. I've read other books from the same author and they are all great. This is the kind of book you listen to 2 or 3 times to really get all of the good points it makes. I definetely recommend it.
This is the first Sci-fi book I listen to and I just loved it!!! I usually like more of the self-developement or business books, but this book "Elantris" blew me away. Very good story. I would highly recommend it.
