Sisters, can't live with them, can't live without them
The story of Nefertiti by Michelle Morgan, is told through via her sister, Mutnodjmet. It is the younger sister who accompanied her parents to the funeral of future pharaoh and reports the proceedings to Nefertiti. It is Nefertiti who marries the new future pharaoh, Amunhotep. The marriage was arranged in the hope Nefertiti with her strong personality (and father's guidence) will temper her pharaoh husband's heretical desires.
Mutnodjmet continues to serve her sister in many capacities. The bond between them is strong and complex and as interesting to follow as is the action around them. Like the court of Henry VIII, there is love, betrayal, political unrest and religious conflict with a nasty plague throw in for good measure.
As with Cleopatra's Daughter, this story is very engrossing and hard to put down!
Cassandra Campbell's narration is good for the story.
For me, Nefertiti by Michelle Moran, deserves a five out of five rating. But maybe you should read it for yourself to find out if I am correct n my judgement.
This was an Audible.com selection, The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willing.
If you are a fan of old movies, I am sure you will remember Travor Howard as the Scarlet Pimpernel. You may also have heard of another English fellow, the Purple Gentian. But, have you heard of the Pink Carnation? Me either before this listen; thanks to our heroine, Eloise Kelly! In Eloise's search she comes across letters that tell us "the secret".
The dialog as quick witted as the pace is fast and salted with humor.
Give yourself a giggle and check this one out.
it is a good mystery with a good reader (& a bit of sax thrown in. combo is delightful.
yes, it does not appear to be so dry it is sleep inducing. the chapter has drawn me in. i want to listen to and learn about this man.
drew me in and made me want to hear more.
there were too many explatives for me to get very far...just not worth my time and did not seem funny or to add to the humor.
this was a great way to get a bit of the feel of the book. this one just didn't draw me in.
and this one is a good one...and it is good to learn about him and hear his words his way.
it's fantacy and a fun series
not deep but fun to listen to
