    Now, as Turek readies an all-out attack on the Nexus system - a key conquest that could seal the rest of the galaxy's doom - Ky must rally to the challenge, draw upon every last reserve of her strategic skills, and reach deep if she is to tear from the ashes of tragedy her most decisive victory.

    Charlie says: "Finally, some action. But too little and too late."
    "good series let down by bad narration"
    Overall

    I had the pleasure of listening to the rest of the series in either the Graphic Audio version (very good!) or the narrator from the original tape versions (I don't have her name). This narrator is just.. bad. No sense of the dramatic, bad voices. I think I'd rather be reading it in book form!

    One of the best-loved of mystery writers weaves another tale of intrigue featuring Amelia Peabody and her archaeologist husband Radcliffe. This time the willful and witty duo must catch a murderer at an excavation of an ancient Egyptian tomb in Luxor.

    Mary A. says: "Great second read!"
    "You want the Barbara Rosenblat version"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Curse of The Pharaohs to be better than the print version?

    Yes, only if I were listening to Barbara Rosenblat. Susan O'Malley does not do Amelia Peabody justice


    What other book might you compare The Curse of The Pharaohs to and why?

    I can't think of anything to compare it to.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I listened to the first book with Barbara Rosenblat as narrator and she is far and above much better.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Nothing in particular. The Amelia Peabody stories are always full of great moments.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't get this version! Go for Barbara Rosenblat. I wish I had!!
