    New York Times best-selling master of suspense, Elizabeth Peters, brings an exotic world of adventure, intrigue, and danger to vivid life, in a tale as powerful as ancient Egypt.

    Donna says: "The Serpent on the Crown"
    "Rated Low for Narrator"
    Overall

    The previous audio books I purchased from Audible by Elizabeth Peters were narrated by Susan O'Malley (sp?). This one was narrated by Barbara Rosenblatt. I found the voice of Amelia Peabody Emerson too gutteral and hoarse compared to Susan O'Malley. Also, I can hear either papers shuffling in the background or the narrator's repeated swallowing...I'm not certain which it is.

    I love Elizabeth Peters and will probably purchase more, even if Barbara Rosenblatt has narrated, but I don't enjoy the telling of the story as much. It has changed the character of Amelia and I find it difficult to see her as the character Ms. Rosenblatt portrays.

    Only Cabrillo could convert the interior of a nondescript lumber hauler into a state-of-the-art spy ship - and only he could take the helm on the dangerous covert missions it carries out for whichever US agency pays the price.

    "They don't come any better than the Oregon Files."
    Overall

    New fans to Clive Cussler will love the Oregon Files. High tech mercenaries with believable diverse backgrounds. This kind of ship probably exists in real life in today's world.

    Amelia Peabody embarks on her first Egyptian adventure armed with unshakable self-confidence, a journal for her thoughts, and, of course, a sturdy umbrella. On her way, she rescues Evelyn Barton-Forbes, who has been "ruined" and abandoned on the streets of Rome by her lover. With a typical disregard for convention, Amelia promptly hires her fellow countrywoman as a companion and takes her to Cairo, where strange visitations and a botched kidnapping convince Amelia that there is a plot afoot to harm Evelyn.

    Todd says: "Outstanding!"
    "Wonderful book and Narrator"
    Overall

    I love Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody Emerson series. Have read all and am in the process of purchasing all the audiobooks from Audible.

    I wish The Hippopatomus Pool was available.

    I prefer Susan O'Malley to Barbara Rosenblatt...I believe she portrays Amelia Emerson with the wit the author intended...the readings by Ms.Rosenblatt seem to give Amelia too much pomposity in her character.
