Not particularly. Not very amusing, entertaining or enlightening.
Hardly a surprise
I don't think this is as good as the first book in the series, which was OK, not great. The story is the major problem. It is farfetched. Not much goes on and there isn't much character development. It's boring. I wouldn't listen to any more in the series.
I've tried these early Marion Chesney (M.C. Beaton) Regency romances before and found them to be mostly very poor. I tried this because of the 4 stars and good reviews. I shouldn't have. The writing is bad. It is a miserable Georgette Heyer rip-off.
The premise was good and original. The beginning of the book was good, then it degenerated into boring make-believe futuristic technology. The narration was fine. Not recommended.
Several things didn't add up. Twinks can read heiroglyphs, but doesn't know where the valley of the kings is. A sarcophagus isn't going to fit in any car-possibly a coffin, but never a sarcophagus.
This series is humorous. This is the second in the series I have listened to. At first the humor is new and enjoyable, but after sooo many repeats, it gets old.
I'd highly recommend Simon Brett's other 2 series and he is a great narrator.
