Publisher's Summary

In this, the Henty novel covering the oldest time period of any, listeners will learn much about the domestic life, customs, religion, and military system of ancient Egypt. Amuba, a prince of the Rebu nation on the shores of the Caspian Sea, with his charioteer Jethro, is carried into slavery after losing a battle with the Egyptians. They become servants of the house of Ameres, an Egyptian high priest, and are quite happy there until the priest's son accidentally kills the sacred cat of Bubastes. The locals rise up in rage and kill Ameres, and Jethro and Amuba must escape with the high priest's son and daughter. After crossing the desert to the Red Sea, they eventually make their way back to freedom.

Top notch !!!

Such wonderful books being so obscure today it's quite sad. however, this group who put together these audiobooks of the Henty classic novels should be applauded. The narrator, who seems to have done all of them, is quite excellent. His different characterizations are quite distinct and believable. I recommend these quite highly.

Very interesting look at Egypt!

Much of that part of history seems veiled in shadow and unknown. I enjoyed this story because I don't know much about the history of that era / part of the world. It's historical fiction, so the outcome isn't very plausible. But on the whole I really enjoyed it. Enjoyed learning more about the Egyptians and Hebrews. I struggle with Jim Hodges as a reader, but you just have to give it a chance and once you're into the story you forget about the narration.

The Cat of Bubastes

Great book restated facts a few times and at some parts of us boring. But other wise this is a great book. At times it is a tad gory

one God or many?

I particularly enjoyed the theme in the later part of the book of how the characters question who's gods are the most effective and how they resolve that question. It''s not a theme that I expected in the pagan world of Egypt.
