    Con un ritmo trepidante, es una digna historia de Amelia Peabody y su familia.Reconozco que a lo que se refiere a estas aventuras no puedo ser imparcial Desde que cay una en mis manos hace a os las ador Pero no fue hasta el a o pasado que me anim a leerlas todas y en orden.Cre que echar a algo en falta a Sethos porque adoro a ese personaje, pero ni siquiera me ha dado tiempo a darme cuenta de que, como en la anterior, este no aparece en esta aventura C mo echarlo de menos cuando tenemos Con un r [...]

    This was another great installment in the Amelia Peabody series Usually, my favourite part is the snappy reparte between Amelia and Emerson, with whatever mystery or mayhem they re trying to solve being secondary But in this outing, the actual story was pretty fascinating.The Emerson family become caught up in the mystery involving a long ago friend of Emerson s who disappeared with his young, beautiful wife years ago, while trying to find a lost civilization A note has been delivered to the Thi [...]

    The plot of this one didn t do much for me, but I nonetheless enjoyed another expedition with the Emerson Peabodys They continue to amuse me, and there s a particularly touching bit when the family has a closer than usual brush with death And of course, the Egyptian scenery is always interesting.I like that this book begins at a crisis point, then flashes back to tell how the family arrived there It was a nice departure from the usual linear storytelling in this series.I hope to one day see R Th [...]

    In this book, the author has taken a departure from her usual style to pay homage to her heroine s favorite author, Rider Haggard, who wrote such classics as King Solomon s Mines It s a fun romp through the desert with less archeology than adventure.

  • Jonathan Palfrey

    This is the Elizabeth Peters tribute to H Rider Haggard She s chosen to do what Arthur Ransome did a few times to take her familiar set of characters and put them into a fantasy situation, for fun and variety.It s a relatively mild fantasy, there s nothing supernatural about it, but she allows the Emerson family to be led into a mad quest for long missing persons in the desert, where they almost die of thirst before finding themselves captives of a lost ancient civilization hidden in obscure Thi [...]

    I pecked away at the first half of this novel, dutifully reading a few pages a day not high praise for a mystery novel Of the various elements that can keep a reader engaged, plot, character, theme, etc , the only one that worked for me was setting I was intrigued with insights into problems of survival in the Sahara, as well as information regarding ancient Egypt and archeology which I presume was, to some degree, authentic The plot picked up toward the end, and I was able to get engaged I peck [...]
