I love this series, I have listened to all 18 books over and over. The are uplifting, fun, and Barbara Rosenblat reads so so good, she does the whole series so her voice matures with the series. THANK YOU ELIZABETH PETERS for writing thses books and THANK YOU BARBARA for reading them to me. GIVE MR MORE,, yeah book 19 is out,,,, I am so so happy.
I was very pleased with this audio recording. Barbara Rosenblatt has the best voice for the Amelia Peabody series. The variance of character voices makes for an intriguing story that brings you in. I would recommend this to anyone with a good sense of humor and an interest in Egyptology.
Read this (and quite a few others) years ago but hearing it in Amelia's own words is wonderful.... even the adaptation of Emerson is excellent... so much is said using inuendo and humor. I can't wait to listen to the rest of the story
Amelia Peabody is an admirable character, one who I think I will enjoy in future books. The plot is light and entertaining, but the mystery is complicated enough to hold one's attention. Barbara Rosenblat does a spectacular narration!
Definitely holds your interest. Good story. Good reader. Good for a listener who likes strong female characters. Spiced with humorous situations. Suspenseful.
I enjoyed the writing and characters of this book immensely.
I do think that events kept happening over and over that were similar and seemed like the book was being dragged out a bit too much.
The plot was good and the ending not quite what I had figured out! (Always a delight :)
I have loved Amelia and Emerson for many years and when my bookclub selected Crocodile on the Sandbank I decided to give it a listen. What a great decision! The reader was perfect as the voice of Amelia Peabody and even did an excellent job of creating the "Roaring" voice of Emerson.
Adventire, humor and romance. What more can you want?
I would give this reading 6 starts if I could.
I love the Egypt of Amelia Peabody Emerson & family. The books are sprinkled with fact and fiction and the Egypt of that era is so totally pictured that you could almost believe you were there. I read the books years before the audio came out. I got the audio as soon as it was available and wore out the tapes. Barbara Rosenblatt makes the Amelia of my imagination come alive... she is the perfect embodiment of that formidable Englishwoman. I totally love this audio book.
I am a senior citizen who loves a good mystery, but I object to books with profanity and explicit sexual situations.
I bought this book because of the other reviews, but alas, I do not concur. I listened to three hours of this drivel. Could not stomach anymore. I was waiting for something funny or at least appealing. Not so. At least, not in the first 3 hours. Maybe it was the genre. I just couldn't get interested in a story about two "proper young" women from England in the late 1800's traveling to Egypt to see the Pyramids. (Yawn). Oh, my, I think I need a nap!
