Heartsick is one of those books you can't put down. It grabs you from the first page and pulls you along from there. There are twists and turns in the plot, some you can see, others that make you gasp. If you like novels by Patrica Cornwell, Thomas Harris or Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child you'll love this addition to the genre.
I was so excited to see this book at Audible and snatched it up, only to fling my iPod across the room after about 15 minutes of having my ears tortured. I just couldn't get past the narrator for the life of me. Only time that's happened in over 5 years of listening to books on audio.
Egypt has it's own special allure for most. Names like Nefertiti's bring with it visions of gold and hot sun. This books brings that to life with wonderful force and character. The individuals in this books are well rounded and thought out, with strengths and flaws that are easy to relate to. The story fleshes out the Egyptian past and brings the Royal lifestyle to light, with enough of a connection to history that I felt I learned something of the true past.
Seriously. I adore classic lit, I'm an admitted anglophile, but WTF? Who decided THIS was a classic? I forced myself to listen to the book in it's entirety. The narrators were fine, but the material is god awful. I kept hoping it would get better, but it just got worse. It was like watching some horrible car accident, that was then struck by a train and finally a plane crashed into it, causing the whole fiasco to burst into flames.
Do you doubt I feel strongly about this? :)
Listen to this at your own risk. If this is what some women think as romantic, I hope they find their own personal stalkers for their version of 'True Love'. Bah!
