The Jewel of Seven Stars | [Bram Stoker]

The Jewel of Seven Stars

The warning was inscribed on the entrance of the hidden tomb, forgotten for millennia in the sands of mystic Egypt. Then the archaeologists and grave robbers came in search of the fabled Jewel of Seven Stars, which they found clutched in the hand of the mummy. Few heeded the ancient warning, until all who came in contact with the Jewel began to die in a mysterious and violent way, with the marks of a strangler around their neck.

Publisher's Summary

"Hither the Gods come not at any summons. The Nameless One has insulted them and is forever alone. Go not nigh, lest their vengeance wither you away!"

The warning was inscribed on the entrance of the hidden tomb, forgotten for millennia in the sands of mystic Egypt. Then the archaeologists and grave robbers came in search of the fabled Jewel of Seven Stars, which they found clutched in the hand of the mummy. Few heeded the ancient warning, until all who came in contact with the Jewel began to die in a mysterious and violent way, with the marks of a strangler around their neck.

Now, in a bedroom filled with ancient relics, a distinguished Egyptologist lies senseless, stricken by a force that challenges human understanding. From beyond the grave Queen Tera is reaching out for the mysterious jewel that will bring her 5,000-year-old plan to fulfillment.

    "Mother of all Mummy-Stories"

    As far as I know the Jewel of the Seven Stars is the mother of all Mummy Stories (movies, etcetera). Being Egyptologist myself this of course is must-have literature. And I thoroughly enjoy Stoker's great story, again and again. I just love this book - great listen wherever you are.
    The reading is very good, skilled and well told (though the actual audio quality could have been better).

    "More Stoker, please"

    I enjoyed this book from start to finish. Even if you are not particularly interested in Egyptology, it's a fantastic listen. Also recommended: Robert Whitfield's narration of "Dracula."

    Story
    "A Classic Well Worth a Visit"

    This is an early 1900's classic and for a reason…not many people know that Bram Stoker wrote other good Horror stories other than Dracula, and this book was the original that inspired all those Hollywood "Tales of the Egyptian Mummy" genres. That said it was much better than I expected and was not at all like those original film plots, but rather had a sophistication that belied the film industries attempts to portray such stories, and a depth of knowledge about the rites of ancient Egypt that had me running to look up Abraham Stokers Bio! It built the suspense well and the characters, and It seems there were two endings and the original ending was too horrific for 1915 readers so it was softened and this is the 1915 ending but the original ending can still be read in Penguin editions. That said it was a cracking listen and the overly quaint language reflects a time gone by but also adds to the eerie “atmosphere”. A solid performance by Simon Vance.

    "Entertaining Story"

    Narration is well done. Story is an intriguing mystery with definite influence of turn-of-the-century fascination with all things Egyptian and the new fields of science. Held my interest for a long car trip.

    "Good stuff."

    I enjoyed this listen. The narration was superb and it's a suspenseful story with historical mysticism. It was delightful.

    "The lesser known work from Bram Stoker"

    The narrative is building up as you go through the chapters, which makes it extremely painful to stop listening. The audio is very well produced and this is one of the works I wouldn't have the patience to read but make an awesome listen.

    "i really wanted to like it but..."

    wow - i was excited about purchasing this book. i really wanted to like it. lots of promise with bram stoker as the author and a fun concept. it got worse as it went along. it is so wordy. everything is too pit pat put together. the characters almost become funny just over half way into the book - they are preposterous and too pompous. don't even know why i finished it. a promise of a good book that turned out to be one of my least favorite purchases.
