The title, summary and setting promised an exciting adventure mixed with a good dose of history and fiction. From my view, the story was 25% history with no characters that you could care about and a plot that was all about robbing ancient tombs. I purchased this book because of its high ratings and story line but I was misled.
A very well written book that maximizes the power of words to tell the story. The author is a master at bringing to life his feelings and emotions and you are with him when he arrives at new revelations about himself and his past. A journey of discovery that enabled me to start my own reexamination of past events. A joy to listen to!
A refreshing story about another culture in an earlier era. The characters come to life with emotion and feeling. Although filled with acts of cruelty and love, it is a beautiful and delightful listen.
