I have loved Amelia Peabody since I first met her many years ago in the pages of this book. Barbara Rosenblat brings this fictional woman to life so vividly. The mystery, history, and fun of 19th-century Egyptology is as fresh now as it was when the book was first published. Elizabeth Peters never disappoints the reader. She uses her extensive education in history (a Ph.D. in Egyptology, in fact) to take the reader back to the adventures of discovering tombs and temples during the heyday of excavations. I highly recommend this book, this series, and this narrator.
A magnificent story--well presented--I wish I could read it again for the first time, but listening for the first time was nearly as good. McKinley not only tells good stories, she tells stories well. A long-awaited addition to my audio library--and worth the wait.
