I love historian fiction. I love the insights you get into life in times past. The story has almost no historian context. It is basically a mundane mystery thriller told with modern dialogue. If you want a story about Ramses hanging out in a bar with Moses and a bunch of college buds, go for it!
Even George Guidall's excellent narration couldn't save it!
Just seemed to go on and on without much direction. I admit, I did not see it through to the end. I just really didn't care about what was going to happen with these people.
Riveting story. A lot of historical detail, which interests me. but disturbing. Definitely want more from this author.
I liked the main character and the story about him, but when the narrative changed to talking about an elusive author he was trying to track down, I found I didn't care.
I like historical fiction, but I like mine more reality based. Did hold my interest.
I got through about the first half of Part I. It introduced a number of interesting characters, but I couldn't discern any real story line.
Did I give up too soon?
