    The world of ancient Egypt springs magnificently to life in this astonishing historical novel of love, war, political intrigue, and religious revolution. Told from the first person point of view, it is the story of Sinuhe, physician to the royal court of Pharaoh Amenhotep III and his successors in the middle of the tumultuous 14th century B.C.

    Fernando says: "Best historical Novel Ever written"
    "A gripping story and insights of a great writer"
    Overall

    The book is a fascinating story based on historical events. I found the first hour or so a bit difficult to get into but then the book took off and I could hardly stop listening to it. As in great literature, you get powerful insights into human condition but here, as a bonus, you also get a story full of adventures. It is quite plausibly woven into the history of not only Egypt but other great nations that have since disappeared but who at that time where world class powers. It gave me a lot of food for thought about how history repeats itself and how the much the rulers of ancient Egypt or Syria had in common with our current rulers in the US and elsewhere. It is very inspiring to realize how brave our ancestors were and how resourceful and tough - it is a great example to us. I have already put Waltari's "The Roman" on my wish list because "The Egyptian" gave me so much pleasure.
